It’s the time of year when our Sunday roast consumption goes through the roof and I think we can all agree that one of the more essential elements of the roast dinner is some truly magnificent gravy. With the help of some Morrisons, Tesco and Waitrose voucher codes, we will show you how to achieve gravy greatness with as little expense and stress as possible…
How to Make Traditional Gravy From Scratch...
The first thing you need to make traditional gravy is a roasting joint – fairly obvious but we think it need pointing out.
Top Tip: Supermarkets are now dab hands at bring you fresh, great quality meat at exceptionally good prices and we think you could do a lot worse than use our Tesco voucher codes and Waitrose voucher codes to save even more money on it. With current Tesco voucher codes, you can get £15 off your first order if you spend £60 or more – perfect if you’re new to this whole online shopping malarkey. And with Waitrose voucher codes you’re not even limited to the first shop – you can use Waitrose voucher codes to claim £10 off each of your first 5 orders. So why not use all these savings to treat your family to a prime joint of lamb or pork. Because if the meat is great then this makes the gravy even greater.
Once you’re joint is cooked, leave it too rest on a separate dish and keep the meaty juice in the roasting tin. If you’re doing roast potatoes too, keep the water from when you boiled your potatoes to one side. The only other thing you will need for a traditional gravy is one heaped tablespoon of plain flour (don’t forget to us those Tesco voucher codes or Waitrose voucher codes to replenish your flour stocks).
Heat the meat juices up on the hob with a little water to loosen any bits that are stuck on, then whisk in the flour. Once you’ve made a paste, add the potato water bit by bit until you have enough gravy.
How To Make Easy Onion Gravy...
If you’re not roasting any meat but still want some excellent gravy for your bangers and mash for example, whip some some delicious onion gravy as an accompaniment.
Top Tip: Our Morrisons voucher codes can help you stock up on everything you need – with the latest Morrisons voucher codes, you can get up to 50% off selected groceries, including 2 for £2 on packets of Oxo Cubes and Morissons Signature Outdoor Bred Pork Chipolotas on at 2 for £5. The only other things you need to buy with Morrisons voucher codes are an onion and some butter.
Thinly slice the onion and fry in some butter until tender. Make up some beef or chicken stock with some cubes and then stir in some plain flour with the onions. Gradually add the stock until you get a thick gravy consistency.
Tesco, Waitrose and Morrisons voucher codes are just the tip of our grocery savings iceberg, so if you haven’t yet done an online food shop then now is the time!
