I didn't have any brown gravy so I decided to try this recipe out. I'm so glad that I did because I'll never have to buy brown gravy packages ever again. I didn't have any Marmite/Vegemite so I used 3 beef bouilion cubes (initially I tried 2 and it didn't have much flavor) and just added a dash of salt and pepper. If I ever see Marmite/Vegemite, I will definitely get some and use it with this recipe.

Of course, it came from my mom so I love it! You can use just about any pairing of 2 cups water to broth cubes, bullion granules, liquid concentrates, whatever flavor and brand you like.

Really good gravy for veggies. I wanted to make a big batch of poutine and half my roomates are vegetarian, so I was happy to find this one. I doubled it to make enough. We've done it a couple of times now and found it very salty as written, and so now I don't add any salt (I think there's enough saltyness in the butter and Marmite - you can always add some salt and pepper to your plate as needed).

Loved this gravy! Wasn't too thick or thin. It was just right, rich and delicious and to Moder8Sk1LLz, if something contains butter it can still be vegetarian, I believe you are thinking of vegan. Vegans don't use any dairy products, but vegetarians do.

Very very good!!! My son wanted chicken gravy like the school has =/ I did sub better than bullion for the yeast extract and had a very good result. Would be happy to make this one again and again!

In the strictest sense of the word this is not "vegetarian" if it contains butter...but not bad.

EXCELLENT!! This is an answer to my needs. I substituted 2 tablespoons of (Hacho) miso for the Marmite. I added some more water as I found the gravy a little too thick. I may have cooked it too long initially. Thank you for such a great recipie! (I am going to reduce the butter to 3 TBSP here after.)

I use this gravy for so much. I usually add a tsp of garlic powder and sometimes sub shortening for butter which works just as well.
