Ingredients for “Gravy:”

  • 1 small Shallot, finely diced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, finely diced
  • 4 - 6 Brown Mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp. Dried Thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1 1/2 cup LS Vegetable Broth
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 5 tsp. White Whole Wheat Flour

Gravy Procedure:

When meat has about 15 minutes left, begin this process:

Step 1: Heat medium sized skillet on med-high with 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil

Step 2: Add the shallot, garlic and mushrooms. Sauté for about 5 - 8 minutes, gently moving around with a wooden spatula occasionally.

Step 3: In a small bowl, combine broth, Balsamic and Worcestershire. Whisk together until blended. Pour about 1/3 cup into another small bowl and set aside.

Step 4: Add original contents to the skillet of shallot, garlic and mushrooms and turn down heat to med-low. Gently swish around to blend ingredients.

Step 5: In the reserved bowl of broth..., add the flour and whisk until smooth.

Step 6: Now add that bowl to the skillet and let simmer until it thicken a bit; maybe 4 - 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a gravy boat. When the meat is done, remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving. On a serving tray, thinly slice meat and pour some of the gravy on top. Garnish with a Fresh Thyme Twig.
