White gravy is traditionally served in the South with chicken-fried steak, steak fingers and other Southern favorites. Many traditional cooks make a gravy using the remnants from the pan after cooking chicken-fried steak, for example, but this recipe made up of butter, flour, milk and salt and pepper works just as well.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 5 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 Teaspoons cracked pepper

Directions

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low to medium-low heat. Once the foam has subsided, slowly whisk in the flour.

Whisk continuously until it becomes a fragrant light brown.

Slowly add milk, whisking continuously to keep lumps from forming.

Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes.
