Brown Gravy

Low Fat Recipe

You use chicken broth but the addition of dry red wine and ground red and black pepper turns this into a tasty brown gravy that is totally fat free.

Brown Gravy


1/4 cup all purpose flour
1-1/2 cup fat free, reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Recipe Directions

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a small bowl. Gradually add turkey drippings and water, stirring with a whisk until blended.

Bring wine to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; cook two minutes. Add flour mixture; cook two minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat; stir in peppers.

Troubleshooting Gravy

  • Gravy is lumpy: With a whisk, beat the gravy until smooth. If this fails, use a food processor, strainer or blender.
  • Gravy is not thick: Dissolve 1-teaspoon cornstarch (per 1-cup of gravy) with 1-teaspoon cold water or broth. Whisk into gravy and simmer one minute until thickened.
