Onion Gravy

Here is a gravy that pairs perfectly with Salisbury steak, meatballs or schnitzel. And one can never go wrong by smothering mashed potatoes with a spoonful of onion gravy!  
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups liquid (water, meat juice or broth)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
  • salt, to taste

  1. Cook onion in oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat, until onion is softened and browned, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Add  minced garlic and saute for another minute or two.
  3. Sprinkle flour over the onions and continue to cook, stirring, for several minutes.
  4. Gradually stir in broth, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper. 
  5. Simmer (stirring often) until gravy is slightly thickened.
  6. Season with salt.



  1. How can you go wrong with this??? Two of my favorite words! ONION and GRAVY!!!!

  2. Me, too, Linda! It sounds so flavorful.

  3. I like this recipe and agree that the Worcestershire sauce adds even more flavour to the gravy. Delicious!
