  • 1 C meat drippings
  • 2 C water
  • 1 tsp dried herbs like rosemary, parsley or sage (or 1 T fresh herbs)
  • 5 T cornstarch mixed with 1/2 C water
  • 2 tsp Real Salt
  • dash pepper


  • Mix 1 1/2 cup of drippings and 2 cups of water or 3 cups of store bought broth with any herbs or other seasonings (1 tsp. dried herbs like rosemary, parsley or sage work great here) you'd like use over medium-high heat
  • Meanwhile, combine 3 T cornstarch with 1/2 C water or store bought broth
  • Whisk well with a mini whisk or fork until smooth and completely combined
  • Once the drippings and water or store bought broth you are cooking over medium-low heat begin to boil, slowly pour in the cornstarch mixture whisking continually
  • Turn heat to medium and continue whisking, a little slower now, until the gravy starts to thicken
  • Season with salt and pepper to your liking then remove from heat and pour into your gravy boat. You are all ready to serve!


Pro Tip: It is very important to keep whisking briskly as you pour the cornstarch mixture in until it is completely combined.
Store leftover gravy right in the gravy boat with tinfoil over top in the refrigerator. Or you can store it in an airtight container but who wants another dish to wash later right?
Note that the gravy will because gelatinous when it gets cold. It can easily become that delicious glossy gravy again with a little heat. 
To reheat, simply place in a stovetop pan and bring to a liquid again over medium heat. If you are in a hurry, you can even pop it I the microwave for 1-2 minutes. 
Pro Tip: If it has become too thick, just add a tablespoon of water until it is back to the consistency you like for gravy.
