Our definitive onion gravy recipe – made with red onions, garlic and thyme – is perfect served with sausages and mash, toad-in-the-hole or your favourite roast dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 red onions, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 glass red wine
  • 300-400ml chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Method

  1. Place a frying pan over a medium heat, add the oil and onions and cook for 10 minutes, stirring regularly so the onions don’t catch. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for a further 5 minutes until the onions are really soft.
  2. Stir in the flour, cook for 2 minutes, then add the red wine and bubble for a few minutes, until reduced by half. Add the stock gradually, stirring continually until you have a nice, thick gravy. Check the seasoning, add the balsamic vinegar and serve.
