How to make brown gravy

  • Set your Instant Pot to "Sauté" mode, or if using a saucepan, place it over medium heat. Add the vegetable oil and allow it to heat up.

  • Add half of the flour to the hot oil and whisk it vigorously to form a smooth paste, creating the base for the gravy (roux).

  • Continue whisking the roux until it turns a dark brown color. This will take about 20 minutes, and the aroma should be reminiscent of popcorn when it's done.

  • Add the coffee granules to the roux and mix well. Initially, they might clump a little, but keep whisking until they break down into tiny particles.

  • Add the beef bouillon cubes to the mixture and keep whisking. As they soften, crush them with the whisk to ensure they blend into the gravy.

  • Incorporate the remaining flour into the gravy while whisking. Tiny beads of flour may appear, but don't worry; they will dissolve as you add the beef broth.

  • Pour in the beef broth and whisk until everything is thoroughly blended, creating a smooth and flavorful gravy.

  • Continue whisking the gravy until it reaches the desired thickness. It should coat the back of a spoon nicely.

  • Add the salt and pepper to taste, adjusting the seasoning as needed.

  • Enjoy your homemade Instant Pot beef gravy! Serve it with your favorite roasted meats, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, or any other dishes that call for a rich and savory sauce. This hearty gravy will elevate your meals and impress your family and guests. Happy cooking!

Here are some tips to ensure your brown gravy turns out perfectly:

  • Whisk Vigorously: When making the roux, whisk the flour and oil (or fat) thoroughly to avoid lumps. A smooth roux will lead to a smooth gravy.

  • Patience with Browning: Take your time to brown the roux properly. The dark brown color adds depth of flavor to the gravy. Just be careful not to burn it; burnt roux can ruin the taste.

  • Low Heat for Browning: To prevent the roux from burning, use low to medium heat while browning. It might take a bit longer, but it's worth it for the rich flavor.

  • Prevent Clumps: When adding the coffee granules, sprinkle them evenly while constantly whisking to prevent clumping.

  • Crushing Bouillon Cubes: Crush the beef bouillon cubes as they soften to help them dissolve completely into the gravy.

  • Gradual Flour Addition: Adding the flour in two parts (half first, then the remaining) helps prevent lumps in the gravy.

  • Control Thickness: If the gravy becomes too thick, you can add a little more broth to adjust the consistency. If it's too thin, continue simmering until it thickens to your liking.

  • Seasoning: Taste the gravy before adding salt and pepper. The bouillon cubes already have salt, so adjust the seasoning accordingly.

  • Straining (Optional): If you want a smoother texture, you can strain the gravy through a fine mesh strainer after it's done cooking to remove any small lumps.

  • Serving Suggestions: This gravy pairs wonderfully with roasted meats, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, or steamed vegetables. Experiment with different dishes to find your favorite combination.

  • Make Ahead: You can make the gravy ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for a day or two. Reheat it on the stovetop, adding a little water or broth to adjust the consistency if needed.

  • Freezing: If you have leftover gravy, you can freeze it in an airtight container for future use. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and reheat on the stovetop when needed.

  • With these tips, you'll be able to make a delicious and savory brown gravy that will impress everyone at your table. Enjoy!
