Easiest Brown Gravy Ever Recipe

I am not much of a wine person and didn't have any on hand, but we had the other ingredients and used water instead of wine, and added freshly ground black pepper. It was FANTASTIC. We used it on hamburger steaks and my whole family loved it and wanted more. So simple, yet so delicious!!

I'm so glad I tried this! I was wary after reading some of the reviews. I wanted a different sauce to go with the meatballs I just made-i'm tired of going with marinara or swedish. I found this and figured I didn't have much to lose. It is so good! I switched the wine for beef broth, it's the only change I made. Tastes like the gravy you'd get in a country cooking restaurant, and made my kitchen smell so good! This is a keeper, thanks!

I was trying to find a quick easy recipe for mushroom/brown gravy since I was short on time. I made this recipe to the "T" and all I can say is, that next time I will be doing my own recipe, time and all. Sorry, I hate to give negative reviews, but I also hate to throw away perfectly good food and wine!

Made it according to the recipe. It tasted like canned gravy with canned condensed soup mixed in. I'm not planning to make it again...ever.

This is very good. I always used the 50 cent package gravy mixes where you add water and this is simple and easy and tasty.

This is so tasty and easy much better than using dripping and flour or corn starch to make gravy. Tasted WONDERFUL over potatoes.

Great gravy but WAY too much wine. I would use 1/2 cup only

I thought this gravy tasted terrible. WAY too much wine in this recipe-- It overpowered all of the other ingredients and had too much of a tang for me.
