had never made onion gravy before, so was a bit nervous that it'd go horribly wrong, but this recipe is so simple that it came out perfect and was so good i will be making it over and over - 19 Apr 2012
First time for making gravy, and it turned out well : ) The flour made it a bit lumpy, but I Smoothed it out - 13 Aug 2012
I can make lasagna, yiros, beef stew, and so much more but I couldn't make gravy. My grandmother made the best gravy but mine never tasted like anything close to gravy, well cardboard gravy sause was as close as I could get to it. Thank you so much for this recipe, I consider myself a well rounded cook now. - 04 Jul 2013
