1 cup cold water
2 Tbsp. flour or 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
salt and pepper
Add at least one cup of water to the roasting pan of your roast while the meat is cooking. Remove the meat when done and skim off the fat. Put the pan on a stove top burner on medium heat.
Put flour or cornstarch in a jar. Add cold water (1/4 cup dry milk could also be added), cap and shake until all the lumps are gone. Pour the flour mixture slowly into the simmering broth and stir constantly until thickened. If there is a lot of liquid you may need to use more flour. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves 4.
