Savory Gravy

Photo: Mikkel Vang
Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pan drippings from Classic Roast Turkey
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and pepper

How to Make It

  1. Strain the pan drippings into a fat separator or large measuring cup. Let stand for 10 minutes.

    Skim and discard the fat from the surface.

    Place the empty roasting pan over 2 burners over medium-high heat. Add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, stirring and scraping to dissolve any bits stuck to the pan. Remove from heat and pour into the cup with the pan juices.

    Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Still stirring, slowly add the broth, then the reserved pan juices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
