Cooking Instructions German Home Made Basic Gravy
Chop onions fine, fry in butter on high heat.
after 3 min when onions are visibly dryer add 2-3 tbsp water, stir well. You should see that onions get darker.
Let the water evaporate, saute onions, after 2 min add again 2 tbsp water, stir well. Do this for 4-5 times at same temperature until onions are dark brown.
From this point on you can decide if you want a light or dark gravy. Use red wine, port wine, herbs or spices of your choice (salt, pepper, paprika, etc). Add heavy cream for a light and creamy version.
Puree with a stick mixer.
Should the sauce not have the desired thickness you can mix some cornstarch with some cold water and add it but a brown sauce would get lighter with this.
