Recipe Tips

  • When you go to cook a roast, I would personally wait until the roast has finished cooking before making this gravy. So that way, you can use all the fats and liquid that the roast has produced in the gravy.
  • The lard can be swapped for dripping, ghee, or bacon fat. Pick whatever you like the most.
  • If you’re struggling to thicken up the gravy, then you can use some tapioca flour. Before you add it to the liquid, mix it with a little bit of water. This method will form a paste and will mix in a lot easier and help prevent any annoying lumps from forming.
