Helpful hints

  • Substitute 2 cups low-sodium broth if pan juices are unavailable.
  • A hot roast beef sandwich with beef brisket gravy makes a tasty lunch.
  • For smooth, lump-free gravy, stir flour into a small portion of broth before adding to heat.
  • Avoid heating gravy too quickly. Use medium-low to medium heat, and stir constantly as mixture starts to thicken.
