    I am guessing here - but if the meat is fat free and veg water is free all you needto SYN would be your flour and possibly your gravy browning - what is gravy browning?

    Well after roasting the meat, either use the meat tray or pour the juices into a saucepan. Add a couple tablespoons flour. Whisk together into a roux sauce. Add a bit of gravy browning to colour, a few drops is enough. Then put on heat and add some water used to boil veg, I steam most things but boil potatoes. Add a bit at a time and it will thicken when boiled. Add more water then if necessary. It's trial and error with thickness. If you've roasted veg with the meat, carrots, fennel, garlic, celery etc, mashing and adding to the pan then straining adds more lively flavour and needs less flour. :)

    Depends on how much flour/water you use. :) about 2 heaped tbsp will serve 6....
