How to Make Gravy

I have had a few requests for how I make gravy so here goes:

Add a little oil to your pan and brown your roast on both sides. Put the roast in the crock pot. Then with oil left in your pan, add a bit of flour and mix to make a roux. Add the roux to the crock pot. Add a bit of Kitchen Bouquet - that is what the gravy brown. I like to add a can of cream of mushroom soup because it makes the meat so tender it's falling apart and then add water and let it cook until dinner.

I like to serve my roast over a hoagie bun, but this would also be good with carrots and potatoes, too.

That's all there is to it, folks!

Yummy! I've never browned my roast before putting in the crock pot - I'll have to give that a try!

That sounds really tasty! I'm going to give it a try this week.
Thanks Tracy!

Over a hoagie bun ? Well how about that, a truly unique idea, I mean it is bread, but I never thought of that ~ I guess I am not overly kitchen friendly...LOL but I must learn, so Thanks for a nice tip!! :) :)

OMG, that IS just like how my Mom makes it! I think it's the best gravy ever too and that looks so yummy. I made hot chicken sandwiches with homemade mushroom gravy last night and it was good but this is still so much better.
