Ingredients

How to Make It

  1. Pour pan drippings through a wire-mesh strainer into a large measuring cup, discarding solids. Add broth to equal 3 cups.

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until smooth and light brown. (Mixture should be the color of peanut butter.) Gradually whisk in drippings mixture. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until thickened. Add up to 1/2 cup broth for desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
