What Is A Roux

A Roux is flour and fat cooked together.It is used to thicken sauces & in this case, gravy. Roux is a ratio of equal parts of flour and butter by weight. The flour is added to the melted fat on the stove top, blended until smooth, and cooked to the desired level of brownness. For the purposes of this recipe we will do it backwards; adding melted butter to toasted flour.

Chicken & Beef Bouillon

A bouillon cube is dehydrated bouillon or stock formed into a small cube 13 mm wide. It is typically made from dehydrated vegetables, meat stock, a small portion of fat, MSG, salt, and seasonings, shaped into a small cube.
