    Syn free gravy on all plans

    Ingredients
    1 large red onion, finely chopped
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    few sprigs of fresh thyme (or other herbs of your choice)
    500ml of beef stock (I just use a couple of oxo cubes)
    splash of balsamic vinegar
    Frylight or Pam spray
    Method
    Spray a large saucepan with some Frylight or Pam Spray.
    Add the onion and garlic and cook until caramelised, you will need to keep adding a little of the stock to prevent the onions from sticking to the pan.
    Add the fresh herbs, remaining stock, and a splash of balsamic vinegar, bring to the boil and reduce heat. Allow to simmer covered for approx 1-1 1/2 hours (this really brings out all the flavours, but you can cook it for a shorter time period if you need to. However I recommend cooking it for the full time as suggested if you can, to get the yummy rich flavour of the cooked onions)
    When it has cooked for required time, blitz with a hand blender and your gravy is ready to serve. It is great with any meat or sausages or can even be used for the sauce for a shepherds pie or similar.
