Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp oil
  • ½ onion thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp plain or gluten free flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp ‘beef’ style stock powder
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Fry the onion over a medium heat for a few minutes or until soft and golden.
  2. If using the plain flour, sprinkle on top of the onion and stir through, creating a bit of a paste. Cook off the flour, continuing to stir but not brown for 1-2 minutes. Add half a cup of the water and whisk through briskly. Whisk until the gravy thickens.

  3. If using the gluten free flour, stir to dissolve first in ½ cup of the water. Pour this into the onions and cook off the flour, continuing to stir but not brown for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Pour in the remaining water, stock and soy sauce. Whisk quickly to create a smooth gravy.
  5. Continue to stir until thick and glossy. Take off the heat.
  6. Add cracked black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
