    If you've got Bisto....all you have to do is follow instructions on the packet which just involves mixing Bisto with boiling water till the right consistency. If it goes lumpy at all...just sieve it:blush:

    If I make 1/2 pint real gravy, I usually put approx 2 tbls fat from meat / butter in pan and add one heaped tbls of flour and cook for about 2 mins till flour goes brown. I mix 2 oxo cubes into 1/2 pint water and add this really slowly (or I end up with lumpy gravy :lol:) Sometimes I have to sieve it if it is lumpy :D

    Then I'll just add pepper at the end to taste.

    I just put the roaster on a burner until it bubbles, then mix COLD water and flour in a bowl until I have a runny paste, and then slowly pour it in and stir it until its thick enough. It has to be hot liquid and cold flour/water or else you'll end up with a ton of lumps though. Then put gravy browning in
