Tips for the Perfect Roast Pork Gravy

Here are a few tips to help you achieve gravy perfection:

  • Need a Cornstarch Alternative? If you don’t have cornstarch on hand, you can use flour instead.
  • Not Enough Drippings? Don’t worry! Simply add extra chicken broth to make up for the shortage.
  • Whisk It to Perfection: To avoid clumps and achieve a creamy consistency, use a whisk instead of a wooden spoon.

No Pork Drippings? No Problem!

Don’t fret if you find yourself without pork drippings. You can still whip up a fantastic pork gravy by substituting the drippings with chicken, beef, or vegetable broth. While it won’t have the same meaty flavor, this alternative will still deliver exceptional taste and complement your pork perfectly.

Storing Your Roast Pork Gravy

Not only is pork gravy incredibly easy to make, but it’s also convenient to store. Here’s how to keep your gravy fresh:

  • Refrigerator: Allow the pork gravy to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container or jar. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Freezer: If you want to extend the lifespan of your gravy, let it cool, then freeze it in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months.
  • Reheating: To bring your pork gravy back to life, simply reheat it in a saucepan over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes, or until it’s warmed through.
