“Being a Brit, bangers & mash is a fairly regular staple on the household menu. I tried recipe after recipe for the perfect onion gravy to go with it, and this is by far and away the best.”

  1. Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in the melted butter until softened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Cover the pan and cook until onions are caramelized, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir flour into the caramelized onions and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Pour red wine, chicken stock (see Editor's Note), Dijon mustard, and Worcestershire sauce into the onion mixture; simmer until sauce is thickened, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

I’ve had this in my recipe box for quite a while, and I’m so glad that I finally got around to fixing it. It’s not something that you can throw together in a few minutes, but it’s worth the investment of time. By all means, let the onions caramelize. My cable company came right after I started this dish, and I lost my iPad connection for about 20 minutes while he was installing the new modem, so I just let the onions continue to cook. I served this over an AR recipe ground beef patty, as well as some mashed potatoes. The red wine definitely gives it a nice flavor. This is a versatile gravy that I can see being served over so many different foods.



Whole family loved this! Went together easily and the ingredients are pantry staples. Looking forward to digging into the leftovers tomorrow!



Just a note that some Worcestershire sauce has anchovies listed in the ingredients, for those of you who are wanting to make a vegetarian version.
