This is all you will need:
1 Cup of Whole Milk (you can use Buttermilk too)
5 tbsp of butter (margarine works too)
4 tbsp of flour
Since these are the basics I didn't post a picture of all the ingredients together.
First Melt your 5 tbsp of butter in a med. temp pot.
Once the butter has melted add your 5 tbsp of flour.
Stir until you get a dark yellow paste ( most people call it a peanut butter consistency)
GRADUALLY add your milk to the pot while stirring at the same time, when it gets thick again add a little more milk. You will continue doing so once you have a gravy like texture.
Add your salt and pepper. (This is to your liking) I would recommend 1 tbsp of pepper and 1 tsp of salt. Do your taste testing :).
If its really creamy and thick you made have made gravy! Make sure you do a taste test before serving so you know you put enough salt and pepper in it.
Doesn't this look yummy? That is if you're like me and love anything deep fried in gravy ha ha. These are Southern Fried Pork Chops and will be posted in my next blog entry.
I hope you enjoy!
