Bone Broth Gravy

IMG_3105

When you have bone broth on hand, it is always simple to make a nourishing, nutrient dense and flavoursome gravy to add to breakfast sausages, rissoles,  steak or roast meats.  Gravy is a great way of adding bone broth to your family’s diet.

Eating meat on the bone is important.  Our bodies require the amino acid glycine (from the cartilaginous tissues of the animal) to metabolise and breakdown methionine (an amino acid found in muscle meats). Any wonder rissoles and gravy, sausages and gravy or roast and gravy are natural companions. We love it when culinary matches have a nutritional purpose. It usually works that way. Bone Broth Gravy is rich in glycine which assists the body to safely dispose of methionine rich muscle meats.  This makes bone broth gravy the perfect match for muscle meats that you are cooking and consuming without the bone.  IMG_5308

Making gravy for a roast
  1. The important part of gravy for a roast is obtaining all of the flavoursome, caramelised residues left in the pan after removing your roast from the pan.
  2. Place roasting pan over high heat and add 3-4 cups of bone broth (chicken broth for chicken roast and beef broth for lamb or beef roast)
  3. Allow to simmer over med-high heat to reduce a little (about 5-10mins).
  4. Add salt to taste.

Notes
  1. When cooking sausages, rissoles or steak, you can partially cook them (just to brown nicely) and then return to pan with gravy and slow cook them through over low heat for about 15-20mins.
  2. You can pour your gravy over sliced roast meat and keep cold in fridge, reheating when you are ready to use. The gravy keeps the roast nice and moist.
