Rich Red Wine Gravy

The red wine gives a rich flavour to this gravy but it can be made just with stock. I often make this with cider and a light vegetable stock as an accompaniment to my nut roast.

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 175ml stock
  • 125ml red wine
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • salt/soy sauce and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion until lightly browned.

Add the flour and cook for a minute. Add the red wine and stir to make a paste.

Add the stock, herbs and seasoning. Bring to the boil then simmer on a low heat.

Season to taste, adding more liquid as required.

The gravy can be blended for a smoother texture. It freezes well so it’s worth making a bigger batch.
