I made a roast in the crock pot today. I made mashed potatoes to go with it and I wanted to make gravy but I hate trying to dip the juice out of the crock pot (without getting all the fat) so I made this other gravy. It's very easy to make although not as easy as gravy from a jar. Not that there's anything wrong with jarred/canned gravy.
3 tbs oil (use olive oil and you can tell yourself the gravy is healthy)
5 tbs flour
2 cups beef broth
1/8 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
Put oil in a medium pan. Add flour slowly and whisk to mix until dissolved. Heat on med-high for a minute or so, stirring constantly. Add broth, stirring well so it's not lumpy. Add paprika, salt and pepper and stir. Heat to boiling, reduce to a simmer, and let it simmer for 5-10 min or so, stirring often. Easy.
We are taking Daisy to obedience classes every sunday. I will try to get pics tomorrow but it is really dusty there and I hate to take my camera. I need to take some though-she is really growing (18.5 lbs last week) and doesn't really even look like a puppy anymore.
