How to Make Gravy from Corned Beef Drippings

Updated on October 20, 2011

Gravy Boat

an easy gravy


The juices from the corned beef in the slow cooker are going to very savory and rich. What I like to do is first skim off some of the excess fat from the broth and then make a slurry of corn starch and water and add it to the broth stirring constantly until it begins to thicken ( over medium high heat). Then you have a simple hearty gravy.

Another way to make nice gravy is to pour off the drippings into a saucepan and stir in some flour to make a simple roux. Cook the roux over medium heat for a few minutes and pour some beef broth into it. Turn up the heat and stir the gravy until it reaches a consistency you like. there you have it--corned beef drippings gravy, hot and ready to go on your beef and side dishes.

Thanks and hope this helps!

      Can I or was I supposed to rinse the corned beef?
