What kind of gravy are you making? It's depends on the meat and method of cooking.

Roast pork.

I didn't realize that made a difference.

RE: Gravy - How do you make it?

It makes a difference if you're braising the meat in liquid in which case you would make a slurry out of flour or cornstarch to thicken it, if you're roasting it in the oven or pan frying it then you would use the meat drippings and browned bits on the bottom of the pan and add flour to make a roux. I would remove the pork from the pan, place the pan over medium-high heat and deglaze the pan with a splash of sherry or vermouth, then stir in the flour to make a roux and slowly add water or stock until it thickens. Season with salt and pepper and finish with a pat of butter to make it silky. You can also use packaged gravy mix and do the same thing in place of the flour.

A pat of butter makes it silky. That's a great tip!

I never knew I could add the flour first & then add liquid. Good to know because I used to mix flour & water but I always had lumps, it got to be such a fricken production making it I just stopped doing it. I have a pork loin and I want to do it right.

You can whisk the flour into the pan drippings first, you might have to add a little more liquid to it like a 12 cup. You want to make kind of a paste out of it. Then slowly add in more liquid until it thickens. You shouldn't have any lumps that way.

The juice in the tray from the meat it the most important ingredient.

Listen to Sally.

Good gravy, that's true. Tuna drippings on mashed potatoes might not work. Though, tuna pizza is much better than it sounds, so who knows?

Not so crazy about gravy on meat or potatoes. But sausage gravy on biscuits a few times a year is one of my favorite splurges.

This is a good easy sausage gravy recipe (Pillsbury buttermilk bake and serve biscuits work fine):

*1/2 pkg. breakfast sausage
*2 tbsp. real butter
*4 tbsp. flour
*4 cups whole milk (don't use reduced fat)
*1 12 tsp. salt
*1 12 tsp. pepper

-Cook sausage until done
-Add butter and flour
-Simmer for a few minutes on medium heat stirring frequently
-Add milk, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium-high heat stirring constantly until desired thickness
