I made this gravy this morning, because I was in a group, and someone suggested using coffee grounds to mix in with the rou. Let me tell you, it's so good! You can't taste the coffee grounds at all, but it gives the gravy a beautiful brown color.  This gravy is over the top good. It is a little time consuming, but well worth the effort. This recipe can easily be doubled if feeding a large crowd and you will get great reviews. Try it over our Basic Mashed Potatoes with sour cream and butter. You will fall in love.


1. Add oil to your instant pot , or to a sauce pan.

2. Add half of the flour and wisk extreamly well (making a paste)

3. Whisk until a dark brown (you making the rou) it almost smells like popcorn when it's done. (about 20 minutes)

4. Add coffee grounds and mix well (they will will clump a little at first, keep mixing until very small) 

4. Add bouillon cubes and continue to whisk crush them as they get softer.

5. Add remaining flour and whisk (you will have tiny beads of flour but that is okay it will whisk out when you add your beef broth.

6. Add beef Broth and whisk until everything is blended

7. Whisk until desired thickness

8. Add salt and pepper
