A mouth-watering homemade onion gravy recipe
Onion Gravy Recipe6 Mins
- 1 large yellow onion
- 28g unsalted butter
- 60ml red wine
- 1 tsp sugar
- 250ml beef broth
- ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
- ½ tsp dark balsamic vinegar
- 1 sprig of fresh thyme
- ½ sprig fresh sage
- 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in ½ tbsp water
- 1 tbsp cold unsalted butter
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
Peel the yellow onion and cut them into think slices.
In a saucepan, add butter and place it on medium heat. Once the butter melts, add sliced onions, sugar and cook sauté for about 25 to 30 minutes until they get a deep golden colour. This process is called caramelisation.
Pour red wine to deglaze the pan. Stir with a wooden spoon to scrape off the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add thyme sprig and sage sprig and let the red wine boil for about 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Pour in beef stock, salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
Cover the saucepan, and reduce the heat to let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
Remove the herb sprigs, and add vinegar and cornstarch slurry. Let it simmer for a minute or two until the sauce starts to thicken. Don't forget to stir constantly.
Lastly, add cold butter and whisk until it is dissolved. Serve.
