1 red onion, finely chopped
1 white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
few sprigs of fresh thyme (or other herbs of your choice)
700ml of beef stock
splash of balsamic vinegar
Frylight or Pam spray
If you want a chicken gravy, use chicken stock.
Spray a large saucepan over a medium high heat with some Frylight or Pam Spray.
Add the onion and garlic and cook until caramelised, you will need to keep adding a little of the stock to prevent the onions from sticking to the pan.
Add the fresh herbs, remaining stock, and a splash of balsamic vinegar, bring to the boil and reduce heat.
Allow to simmer covered for approx 1 hour (this really brings out all the flavours and will reduce the stock down, but you can cook it for a shorter time period if you need to. However I do recommend cooking it for the full time as suggested if you can, to get the yummy rich flavour of the cooked onions)
When it has cooked for the required time, add 3/4 of the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Return it back to the pan and mix well.
This gravy is great with any meat or sausages or can even be used for the sauce for a shepherds pie or similar.
