Servings: 3 cups/750 ml
  • 2 medium onions peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp sugar optional
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar or Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 cups or 750 ml beef stock / broth (note if you are having chicken you can swap the broth flavour!)
  • 4 tsp corn flour/corn starch
  • 4 tsp cold water
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a gentle heat.
  2. Add the onion, and turn the heat down and cook for 10 minutes with the lid on, until the onions are soft and translucent. Do not brown the onions as they will begin to taste bitter. Add the 2 Tbsp butter & allow to melt.
  3. Add the balsamic vinegar / worcestershire sauce to the onions and stir well. Cover with the lid and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Add the stock / broth and boil gently uncovered for 5 minutes.
  5. In a cup, mix the corn starch / flour with the cold water to create a thin paste then add this to the gravy and stir to avoid the gravy getting lumps.
  6. Turn the heat to high and boil for 10 minutes or until the gravy is slightly thickened.
  7. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm until ready to serve.
