Learn how to make perfect homemade gravy from scratch every time so you can be ready when it comes to Thanksgiving day. No drippings needed! 



  • 14 oz can low sodium Beef Broth 
  • 2 tablespoons flour 
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 
  • Salt and Black Pepper to Taste


  1. Add butter and flour to a large pot and stir continuously until a roux is formed about 2 minutes
  2. Slowly pour in half the beef broth while stirring vigorously with a whisk. This will help prevent lumps. Once the gravy is smooth and lump-free, add the rest of the beef broth, onion powder, garlic powder, and Worcestershire. 
  3. Let the gravy boil until thick and smooth, about 3 minutes—taste and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
