Once you realize how simple it is to put together this Super Easy Mushroom Gravy, you just might serve it with everything. We love it on meatloaf, pork chops and petite steaks to name a few of our favorites. It's even fancy enough to serve with a holiday meal.
Gravy does create a lot of stress when it comes to meal making. Everyone has a story about the lumpy-flour laden gravy they were either served or made themselves. But honestly, making gravy is easier than you think.
Make sure you are using a saute pan with a large available surface area and a good whisk. Do not attempt to make gravy in a nonstick pan as you won't be able to vigorously whisk the flour without scratching your pan.
Button mushrooms work great for this gravy and you can buy them already sliced at the market to save you even more time in the kitchen.
Once your mushrooms and onions are sauteed, it's just a mater of reducing slightly before getting your delicious gravy to finish on the stove.
It's such a delicious way to top off so many of your favorite meals. We've also really enjoyed this gravy on plain hamburger patties that we've grilled on the barbecue. This gravy is extremely versatile.
A bowlful is going to disappear quickly. You may want to double the recipe.
