  • 2 medium onions peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 cups hot water you may need to add more depending on how long your cook time is
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp AP flour
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Start by peeling and roughly chopping the onions and placing in a heatproof pan.
  • Add hot water and place under the meat to be roasted.
  • Once the meat is ready, remove the tray and empty contents in the saucepan.
  • Heat over medium to high heat, add stock and wine and bring to a simmer.
  • Once at a simmer, lower heat and reduce contents by about a third.
  • Melt butter in a separate pan and add flour, whisk constantly until a nice nutty color is achieved.
  • Add flour and butter to the gravy mixture, stirring to prevent lumps, until it thickens. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Strain contents into a gravy boat and serve.
