How to Make Beef Gravy Mix

I recently tried making my own chicken gravy mix, and it was so good that I decided to make beef gravy mix too. At our house we definitely eat more chicken gravy than beef gravy, but beef gravy goes great over cubed steak with a side of mashed potatoes!

To make this beef gravy mix, you will need:

Beef Gravy Mix

  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 tbsp. beef boullion granules
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground thyme

Note: When you are shopping for beef boullion, make sure to check your labels. By making your own mix, one of the things you are trying to get away from is the MSG that is added to gravy packets. If you look at the jars of beef boullion, you will find that many of those also contain MSG.

Mix all ingredients together and store in a quart sized canning jar or other airtight container.

To make the gravy, add 1/4 c. mix with 1 cup milk or water. If you stir it in really well with a whisk you won't get any lumps in your gravy. Bring to a boil and then turn heat down and simmer until gravy thickens. Add more liquid for a thinner gravy.
