Pure Gravy - the best Christmas gravy!

The best, natural gravy to complement your Christmas dinner, using pure stock combined with the juices & flavours from your roasting joint or bird. You can't beat it!


(Serves 4)

500ml Pure Beef, Chicken or Game Stock

150ml Red or White Wine (according to the meat)

150ml Water

Cornflour as required

Salt & Pepper


  1. Roast your joint on a bed of cut veg eg. carrots sliced in half length ways, whole cloves of garlic, onions quartered, celery sticks, rosemary & thyme.

  2. Once roasted remove your joint of meat or bird, from the tray and wrap it in 3 sheets of foil and allow to rest for at least ½ hour to relax the meat.

  3. Drain any excess fat from the roasting tray.

  4. Place the tray with the trivet of veg onto the hob and add the wine. Allow to simmer and reduce by half.

  5. Add the Pure Stock along with approximately 150ml of water (preferably your veg water) to the tray.

  6. Continue to simmer while you deglaze the pan, stirring and lifting the caramelised meat juices.

  7. Pass through a sieve into a saucepan, carefully squeezing the veg to release more flavour.

  8. Add any juices drained from the rested meat, thicken to your liking with some cornflour slaked with a little cold water.

  9. Season lightly and continue to simmer gently and serve.
