Looking for a kicked-up gravy for turkey, chicken or mashed potatoes or just about anything? Well, you found it.This Cajun gravy may take a while to make, but it’s worth it. You can’t rush good gravy, a good roux takes time. The end result is creamy, flavorful, and has just a bit of kick.
I served up some mashed potatoes, made a nice ‘bowl’ in the middle of them, and loaded up on the gravy. Absolutely delicious. This makes a good sized batch of Cajun gravy. You can’t have too much gravy, though. There’s absolutely nothing worse than still having mashed potatoes on your plate but no more gravy.
I like to use my good ole trusty Dutch oven to make this gravy and pretty much darned near anything like it on my stovetop. It’s nice and big and sturdy. That extra weight helps it maintain and distribute heat perfectly. As an added bonus, it’s actually pretty easy to clean up too!
- Make the roux by cooking the oil and 3 tablespoons flour in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir constantly until nice and dark brown but not burnt, 10-15 minutes.
- Whisk in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
- Keep whisking for 10 minutes or until nice and thick.
