a very simple and delicious gravy. However, you do have to prepare this in a certain order. First, use half the butter to sautee the onions until transluscent. Add the other half of the butter then the flour to make the roux. The best way to make a good roux is to use a whisk. Then, add the water and beef bouillon and continue to whisk until desired color and consistency. If the onions are finely chopped and cooked for the right amount of time, you don't even notice them in the gravy - they just melt away.

Good recipe, but like the others I changed the way I made it, not the ingredients I used. I sauteed the onion in the butter first, then I added the flour to make a roux. I browned the roux to give my gravy some color. Then I added the bouillion and the water. I used to 2 packets of beef boullion in mine, which I scaled for 2 people. Worked out well and tastes great!

What a wonderful, easy way to make gravy! It is especially nice to make with something like meatloaf, when you may not have beef drippings immediately available. I used 2 cups water to four boullion cubes, which worked perfectly. Added black pepper to taste, along with some Worcestershire for color and flavor. Make sure you make the roux first (cook the butter and flour together) so it will start to brown, then add the onions and the other ingredients.
