Pregnant and Craving Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
My mother and grandmother would make pot roast by braising a chuck roast in Campbell's French Onion Soup. The gravy would always be really tasty and what I am really craving right about now is the gravy and mashed potatoes but I'm not sure I can really handle the pot roast part. I was wondering if anyone thinks that I could make the gravy without making the whole roast... I was thinking that since the soup is made with a beef broth base, it would be like making a quick simple gravy with just a beef broth, but maybe it would have some of the more familiar onion rich flavor that I'm in the mood for. Any thoughts?
you might get what you're craving by making a dark-blond roux and adding low-sodium beef broth and a sprinkle of onion soup mix and a splash of cream. you can brighten it up with a squeeze of lemon juice if it's a little flat. go easy on the soup mix. it's a sodium bomb.
edit: sorry i was thinking liptons onion soup. dark-blond roux, the soup, splash of cream and a touch of lemon should work.
