RECIPE FROM "THE
6 to 8 tablespoons of strained pan drippings, plus crispy pan bits, reserved from frying the steak.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt to taste (optional)
5 to 5-1/2 cups milk (or water)
Heat the reserved pan drippings and crispy bits in a skillet over medium heat.
Add the flour and salt, blending well.
Cook, stirring constantly so the mixture does not burn, until it browns, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the milk or water (milk produces creamier gravy).
Cook, stirring constantly until the gravy thickens, about 8 minutes.
If the gravy seems too thick, add additional milk until it is desired consistency.
Makes about 6 cups.
