A nice jus for any beef roast or beef sandwich.

Very easy. I didn't have beef drippings, so used margarine, and used water and Better than Bullion for the beef broth. Takes 5 minutes, and was good with the Beef and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches I made it for. I ended up with more than I needed, so I just tossed the remainder in a soup I'm putting together for the crock pot. If you added more flour, this would also make some beef gravy. Thanks for the recipe!
