It’s pretty simple. You’re either a gravy person or you’re not.
That slow—and delicious—process of making something delicious from meat juices, pan scrapings, flour, stock, and other add-ins means that you’ve got to be all-in on a labor of love and flavor or you may not believe it is work the effort. But biscuits would be on their own without gravy and Southerners simply can’t imagine that. From Redeye gravy to Sherry Gravy, having something to pour over your mains and sides is simply a table staple. At Thanksgiving, gravies like Mushroom Gravy, Fresh Herb Gravy, and Madeira Gravy add just that little something extra to the plate. For something just as delicious, but even more unexpected, you’ll love Caramelized Onion Gravy (http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/caramelized-onion-gravy)
For a subtle gravy with just the right amount of tart tanginess, perhaps Tomato Gravy is what you need. We recommend it on rich meats like roast beef. But we’ve got to talk about Redeye Gravy: anything with butter, bacon, ham, and beef broth must taste as good, or better, than it sounds. So make a pot of gravy, and get ready to pour it on some favorite Southern comfort foods. That country fried steak you’re craving will taste just perfect.
