Easy Beef Gravy is classically smooth and loaded full of beef flavor. This gravy is perfect for pairing with holiday roasts, mashed potatoes or a weeknight pot roast. A few simple ingredients bring this velvety-delicious Easy Beef Gravy to life!


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 32 oz beef stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion and sauté until translucent, about 3-5 minutes, avoiding any browning.
  2. Add in the flour and stir to combine to form a roux. Should be a paste-like consistency. Whisk in the beef stock until smooth and lump free.
  3. Reduce the speed to low and allow to simmer until thickened and glossy, about 5-8 minutes. Strain out the onion pieces until smooth.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and transfer the gravy to the desired gravy boat for serving. Enjoy!


  • This gravy can be made ahead and kept warm in a slow cooker until serving if desired. If the gravy becomes too thick, whisk in a bit more beef stock until smooth.
  • If you don’t mind a chunky gravy, then the onion doesn’t need to be strained. I prefer a smooth, glossy gravy.
