Pepper gravy is a wonderful southern cream gravy that goes great with chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and fresh-baked biscuits. You just need three ingredients plus salt and pepper! This is the easiest recipe to quickly whip up some yummy gravy for dinner.
Quick Gravy with Minimal Ingredients
There's nothing fancy about milk, flour, butter, and spices. They're just common ingredients that you'll find in every kitchen and at every store. Yet these simple ingredients will transform any meal!
Gravy on Everything
This gravy should go on everything! I'm talking about smothering your chicken fried steak, drowning your mashed potatoes, and dipping your crispy chicken tenders with nothing but gravy!
Gravy is the perfect addition to any dish. It's cheap to make and quick to throw together!
Not only does gravy add incredible flavor to your dinner plate but it keeps everything moist and juicy! No dry meat when it's swimming in gravy. No bland potatoes when they're scooping up creamy goodness!
The next time you make dinner, strongly consider "would a little bowl of pepper gravy take this up a notch?". I'm telling you that most meals of meat and veggies could use a little white gravy to bring in a cozy touch of love.
Dip (not just pour) your Gravy
Just a friendly reminder that gravy is perfect for dipping. The next time you air fry some breaded crispy chicken or frozen french fries consider whipping up some simple white gravy. It only takes a couple of minutes.
But if you do pour your gravy then do it over some freshly baked biscuits. Yum, Yum!!
How to Make Gravy Smooth
The trick to making smooth gravy is by SLOWLY whisking in the milk. Do not pour all the milk in at one and start whisking.
Thick or Thin Gravy
I love thick gravy but everyone has their own preference. I like mine on the thicker side. You can make thick gravy by either using less milk or reducing the gravy down through simmering.
If you like thinner gravy then add in a few extra splashes of milk and whisk away.
