Default Discussion Thread -> "For The Love of Gravy!" Throwdown (Entries and Quality ON TOPIC *CLEAN* Discussion Only)

As chosen by Charred Apron for his fabulous win in the "Tri-Tip Feast" Throwdown.

CATEGORY DESCRIPTION - READ BEFORE ENTERING

Special rules, oh yes they do exist.

1.) Gravy must be prepared from drippings of the main protein. Additional stocks may be added, but it cannot be the soul base of the gravy.
2.) Pasta sauce is gravy (in my world) so it's game on too!
3.) Entries must include a recipe to be shared amongst the Brethren. Measured quantities are not necessary, but listing the ingredients is a must!
It's about time we had some special rules, for a change!

You may submit entries that are cooked from Friday 10/18 through Sunday 10/27.

Entry pictures must be submitted by 6 a.m. Central US Time on Monday morning 10/28

Click here to READ THE RULES for the BBQ Brethren Throwdown...

The ENTRY and VOTE threads will follow Q-Talk rules, meaning QUALITY ON-TOPIC discussion of the category or entries only, please. Discussion is encouraged to take place in the DISCUSSION THREAD, but if you want a recipe, or are looking for details or have QUALITY ON-TOPIC comments to make about an entry or the category you can make them in the ENTRY or VOTE thread. Non-quality posts that are made here will be deleted and the offending member will be asked why they couldn't just post in the DISCUSSION thread instead, and in extreme cases or repeat offenders, disciplinary action WILL happen.

Click HERE to go to the off topic, often nonsensical, confusing, and downright bizarre discussion thread.


Best of luck and even better eats to all!

Question for Jed:

Can the main protein be cooked IN the gravy? In other words, the meat drippings will meld with the gravy ingredients as the gravy and meat cook at the same time?

Absolutely! My intent was not to create a gravity dripping contest, the rules states it must be made from the "drippings" sausage gravy made from the remnants of drippings in the pan is a good example.

Well since I was doing pork butts today I figured why not make a gravy from the pan juices while wrapping the butts.
So here is my entry for this TD



The preparation for this is at the end of THIS thread

Default My entry...

I wasn't going to enter this TD, because I was grossed out by the pr0n in the description post, but it occurred to me that I have not made chicken fried steak in quite a while, and that requires gravy. So, I decided to make some CFS, mashed potatoes, and fried okra -- three foods that go well with copious amounts of white gravy.

So, here we go. I made the gravy first. A good CFS gravy must start with butter. Half a stick of butter.



Then you need an equal amount of flour, and some serious stirring.



Then you need milk, salt and fresh ground black pepper.



It starts off watery, but once it hits a boil, it thickens up just right.

Next, I made some garlic mashed potatoes, from scratch, of course.



I took some top sirloin, and beat the crap out of it. I like to make my CFS with better than average steak.



I know this is a gravy throwdown, but I did some experimenting. I used the kettle fried chicken process to make some kettle fried steak.



I deep fried some breaded okra to sop up some more of that gravy, and when it was all plated up, it was a cardiologist's worse nightmare, but I sure did enjoy it. I hope I am still around tomorrow. Money shot.



The gravy was awesome. The rest was awesome, too, but this is a gravy throwdown. The kettle fried steak tasted great, but a lot of the crust fell off during the cook, so I probably won't do that again.

Official entry in the "For the Love of Gravy" TD

I doubled down with the Big Boar Country Ribs today and used the drippings and juices I could muster up to make some gravy with mushrooms, onions, and roasted garlic to top them off.

The gravy blended nicely with the Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria rub and tasted wonderfull

Full cook can be found here:
