You have got to love a traditional gravy recipe and today I bring you an easy gravy recipe enhanced by caramelised red onions and sherry.
You will need:
500ml good quality liquid chicken stock
3 tbsp The English Provender Co. Caramelised Red Onion Chutney
Place the sherry in a pan and simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the stock and reduce on a high heat until you are left with about 100ml. Stir in the chutney and serve.
How do you make gravy?
As with most things food-related I have strong memories of my mother’s kitchen. If you had asked her what the secret to her luscious gravy was, she would have said to always use meat juices and add plenty of onions. Gravy was thick and thin gravy was a novelty when I grew up and went out and about.
I confess that I tend to take the easy option if I am making gravy and use gravy powder. I do add in the meat juices and these days frozen diced onions make everything a lot easier.
Him Indoors is very creative when it comes to sauces and gravy. He likes to experiment. This means sometimes you are in for a real treat and sometimes it does not quite work.
If you are a meat lover, I also advise you to check out a slow-cooked beef recipe with the addition of beer.
Will you be trying this easy gravy recipe any time soon?
