Brown gravy is a basic gravy similar to what you get using a pouch of supermarket instant gravy.




  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Strain into a gravy boat or other serving container and allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
