– 4 large onions, thinly sliced
– 2 tablespoons butter
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 2 cups beef or vegetable broth
– Salt and pepper to taste


1. **Caramelize the Onions:**
– In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat.
– Add the thinly sliced onions to the skillet and cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until they turn golden brown and caramelized, about 30-40 minutes. The slow cooking process is key to developing their sweet flavor.

2. **Add Garlic:**
– Once the onions are caramelized, add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

3. **Make the Gravy:**
– Sprinkle the flour over the caramelized onions and garlic, stirring continuously to coat them evenly. Cook for another 2-3 minutes to allow the flour to cook and eliminate any raw taste.

4. **Add Broth:**
– Gradually pour in the beef or vegetable broth while stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Allow the gravy to simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until it reaches your desired consistency. If the gravy becomes too thick, you can add more broth to thin it out.

5. **Season to Taste:**
– Once the gravy has reached the desired consistency, season it with salt and pepper to taste. Keep in mind that the broth may already contain some salt, so be sure to taste before adding more.

6. **Serve and Enjoy:**
– Remove the onion gravy from the heat and serve it hot over your favorite dishes, such as mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or meatloaf. The rich, savory flavor of the gravy will complement any meal perfectly.


– For an extra depth of flavor, you can deglaze the skillet with a splash of red wine or balsamic vinegar after caramelizing the onions.
– If you prefer a smoother gravy, you can blend it with an immersion blender or transfer it to a regular blender and blend until smooth before serving.

With its rich, sweet flavor and velvety texture, this easy onion gravy is sure to impress your family and friends. Once you try this recipe, you’ll never go back to store-bought gravy again!
