Are you good at making gravy?Beef, Chicken, Turkey?

I must admit that making gravy may be easy but I've never achieved the consistency that the jarred gravies offer. That's why I always have relied on the jarred gravies to offer for potatoes, and the turkey, chicken or beef.

  • Yes, you might try cornstarch instead of flour for making gravy that is more like jarred.

  • Nope. I've tried making country gravy before too, and it just never turns out. Oh well, ya win some, ya lose some.

  • If you're worried about lumps, there's a surefire fix.....it's a plastic shaker with a good lid....put the flour or cornstarch in the shaker with the water....secure the lid.....and shake the heck out of it.....bam. No lumps.

  • When I make a pork or beef roast in a crock pot. I use the juice to make gravy with corn starch.  Now making it from scratch, it has been a long time.

  • No, though I've never tried to make it. All of my other cooking sucks, so I don't see how making gravy would be any different for me. LOL!

  • I use Wondra instead of regular flour to make gravies, roux, cheese sauce, etc. It is so much finer than regular flour and the taste is quite noticeable better, IMO.
