Have some leftover steak? Here’s the easiest way to make steak gravy!
Did you see my recent post about making biscuits with one hand? It’s by far the easiest way to make biscuits! Very little mess!
That day, while I was only interested in the biscuits so that I could slather on the butter, I knew that Matt and our big boys would be looking around for some gravy to put on them. (Seems that I should write a book called “If You Give a Boy a Biscuit”…)
I remembered that I had some leftover grilled steak that we needed to use up. And so, I used it to make Steak Gravy.
No one complained. No, not one.
The Easiest Way to Make Steak Gravy
- 2 leftover cooked steaks
- ¼ cup butter
- 3-4 Tablespoons cornstarch or flour
- 2 cups of milk (more if your gravy seems too thick)
- Cut leftover steak into small bites. (I use kitchen shears to make this easier!)
- Put the bites into a skillet.
- Add butter.
- Melt the butter while heating the steak.
- Sprinkle in cornstarch or flour to make a paste.
- Add milk.
- Cook and stir over medium to high heat until mixture is thick and bubbly.
- Salt and pepper per your preference.
- Serve over biscuits
If your gravy fails to thicken, mix a “paste” of 2 Tablespoons flour with 3 Tablespoons of water. Stir the mixture into your gravy, little bits at a time until the gravy thickens to desired consistency. Do NOT sprinkle flour directly into the gravy. That’s how lumpy gravy is made. :)
