Southern Country Gravy



Quick and easy best southern country cream gravy recipe

Gravy is by far my favorite food accessory! This recipe is super simple because you use the pan drippings (grease) from the meat you just fried. In this case, I had just fried deer steak but you can also use the pan drippings from other fried meat like chicken, bacon, and cube steak. If you don't have drippings available, you can substitute with oil, butter, lard, or shortening. Now, let's get to cooking...

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup pan drippings (grease)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Directions:
  1. Strain: After frying your meat, strain the grease into a heat-proof bowl. Pour 1/4 cup back into your pan. Don't clean your pan! The bits in the bottom add flavor to the gravy!
  2. Heat: Turn the burner on medium-low heat and allow grease to get hot again.
  3. Stir: Once grease is hot, add flour a little at a time while stirring non-stop with a whisk. Flour/grease mixture should cook for at least 2 minutes to prevent a "floury" taste to your gravy.
  4. More stirring: After 2 minutes, whisk in the milk a little at a time stirring continuously.
  5. Cook: Let the gravy come to a slow boil and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Have milk handy and add extra if gravy gets too thick. When gravy is slightly thinner than preferred thickness, remove from heat. (It will continue to thicken as it cools.)
  6. Add: Stir in salt and pepper.
All done! See, that wasn't so bad!😉 Look below for the printable recipe 👇
