GUINNESS GRAVY RECIPE:
• 2 Tablespoons of Butter or Margarine
... • 1 Tablespoon of mustard
• 1 Tablespoon of Thyme, Rosemary or Sage
• 1 1/2 cups Chicken Stock.
• 1 large onion
• 1 Tablespoon of flour (or 1/2 tablespoon of corn flour)
• 1 cup of Guinness
• Salt and Pepper
• Melt butter on a low heat.
• Fry onions until slightly translucent - being careful not to burn.
• Add thyme, rosemary or sage.
• Mix in the mustard.
• Slowly pour in the stock and Guinness, stirring - save a little stock to add to the flour below.
• Mix the flour, or corn flour with a little bit of water to form a paste - add the remaining stock and stir thoroughly. (I find that corn flour is far easier to use as it mixes with the water quickly and easily) - if you like a thicker gravy add more flour or corn flour.
• Bring the gravy to a boil and then slowly add the flour mix, stirring constantly.
• Simmer for a few minutes until the gravy thickens
• Add salt and pepper to taste.
• Serve straight away.
Note, preparing the above way may make the gravy a little bitter - either reduce the amount of Guinness, or add the Guinness to the onions when frying to reduce the volume and bitterness.
• Pour generously over your cooked turkey slices.
• Serve with mashed or boiled potatoes, red or white meat and a vegetable.
• Take some leftover meat and add to gravy - serve over hot crusty bread.
