4 Chef-it-up Gravy Tips Try out one of our tips below for a gourmet touch.

TIP 1: Substitute 1/2 cup (125 mL) of beef broth with red wine. Before adding broth to pan, pour in wine, stirring and scraping up any brown bits (as above). Cook over high heat to reduce by half, about 2 minutes. Add 1-1/2 cups beef broth and finish as above.

TIP 2: Add a few sprigs of fresh thyme or rosemary to beef broth while simmering. No need to chop the herbs as the leaves will fall off the stem as the gravy cooks. Remove stems before serving.

TIP 3: Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter to the completed gravy to add rich flavour.

TIP 4: Before adding beef broth, add a splash (about 2 tbsp) of balsamic vinegar to hot pan; cook, stirring for 30 seconds over high heat. Stir in the beef broth and finish as above.
