Quick gravy (beef)

4 cups water
5 bullion cubes
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour

In small sauce pan bring water and bullion cubes to a boil. After bullion is dissolved pour into heat safe bowl. In same pan add butter and flour and whisk on high heat until butter and flour are combined and bubbling. Add pepper to taste. Allow color to darken slightly until mixture no longer smells like flour. While still on high heat pour broth back into pan and whisk quickly until sauce combines and begins thickening. Lower heat and stir occasionally until serving time. Sauce should be thick and glossy.

Tip. I pour my broth into a large measuring cup making it easier to pour back into the pan. Only butter works for this not margarine.
