Brown Gravy is a basic gravy similar to what you get using a pouch of supermarket instant gravy.
Makes about 1½ cups gravy:
- Sauté the onion in the oil over medium heat with salt and pepper, until the onion begins to turn golden brown. Add the flour and stir. A roux should form; cook it for several minutes until it starts to darken.
- Add the stock and stir until smooth. Add the yeast extract--as the gravy warms it will become incorporated. Taste and season if necessary. When the gravy simmers, it is done.
- Strain into a gravy boat or other serving container and allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
