Directions

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain most of the grease, leaving just enough to coat the pan. Add the onions, and cook for a few more minutes.
  2. Pour 4 cups of the milk into the pan, and stir to scrape up any bits of food that could burn on the bottom of the pan. Mix in the bouillon, butter, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Mix the flour into the last cup of milk until smooth. Slowly pour into the skillet, stirring constantly. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken. If the gravy is too thick, thin with a little bit of milk. If it is too thin, simmer longer, or add more flour. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.

AWESOME!!! I love sausage gravy with biscuits but I didn't have any sausage so I decided to try your recipe. It is incredible. I think I'll be making this instead from now on. The only think I added was a bit of chopped garlic. Because garlic makes everything better....:)

Funny, my Dad's been making this for my sister and I since we were kids. Now, I make it for my boys. And they can't get enough of it. I used beef bouillion and cut back a little on the milk and used sour cream, just for a touch of creaminess. I like to add a little worchestershire and a drained can of sliced mushrooms. My whole family loves it and I get to smile and remember my childhood. ;)

Another quick and very easy dinner to whip up. I didn't have 2 lbs of ground beef so I used a combination of beef and ground "sage" sausage. In place of raw chopped onion (kids don't like) I used 1/2 a packet of lipton dried onion mix. I wanted to add more flavor to the gravy so in place of ALL 5 cups of milk I used 2 cups evaporated milk, 1 cup low sodium boxed beef broth, 1 cup of water and 1 cup regular milk. Served over egg noodles and/or biscuits. I had 2 extra kids tonight for dinner and they all wanted seconds!!! Good thing this is one of those dishes you can continue to add liquid and flour to make more servings!!
