  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt 1/2 of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Heat remaining butter in skillet over medium heat; whisk in flour to form a thick paste. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, until flour has turned golden brown and begins to smell toasted, about 20 minutes.
  2. Whisk water, beef bouillon, and chicken bouillon into skillet until no lumps remain. Add pepper and bring mixture to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened to gravy consistency, 8 to 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The best way to make a good roux is to use a whisk and make sure the butter does not burn.

Did not remind me of KFC gravy. Thought it was a good chicken gravy, though. Might have been more beefy if I had used the same type of bouillon for chicken and beef.
