Easy Homemade Black Pepper Gravy Recipe

There’s quite as satisfying as making your own delicious mashed potatoes, chicken, turkey or meatloaf, and adding your own homemade gravy. And it’s actually one of the easiest recipes you can make?

This easy gravy recipe uses just a few basic ingredients and is the perfect compliment to many delicious meals.

Most commercial gravy mixes are extremely high in sodium and this recipe only uses a fraction of all that salt, without sacrificing taste.

The key ingredient here is the black pepper.

You’ll be doing yourself and all the recipes you prepare a huge flavor by having a pepper mill to always be able to make fresh ground pepper.

You see, fresh peppercorns have essential oils that are expelled during the grinding process which provide all the wonderful aroma and taste.

If you’re using pre-ground pepper you’re losing out on the very essence of what makes pepper one of the most aromatic and highly used spices in the world.

So be sure to use fresh ground pepper in this awesome and easy gravy recipe. You’re gonna love this one!

      Came out fine for me, and I am not a good cook. My guess is that you didn’t get it hot enough and flour taste remained, which would be the result of a shitty cook, not a shitty recipe. I know that when thickening stews for example, you need to get the liquid hot enough or the flour taste will remain.

    We made this gravy a week ago and loved it but our pepper level isn’t this high, lol. So we are making it again and cut the pepper back. This is a great recipe! Thank you from Tennessee…

    I’ve always made white gravy like this but when I make it for breakfast I like to add Owens Hot Sausage to it…..fantastic! Just make this gravy as usual…in a small saucepan brown your desired amount of Owens Hot Sausage, drain & add to the gravy. This will be spicy so you can use the regular sausage or cut back on the amount of black pepper. Enjoy!
