REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
I'd never made white gravy so I googled for an easy recipe and this came up. It is easy and it tasted pretty good. I wasn't sure how much black pepper though to add. Should it have a lot? It seems like the white gravy I've had at diners has been kinda spicy and I'm guessing that is the black pepper? I was afraid to add too much but I didn't get the "kick" that it normally has.

I had a recipe from a friend for country fried steaks but no gravy recipe (and you can't have country fried steaks without white gravy!). This worked well. Use fresh cracked pepper though for the best flavor. I wasn't sure how much I added, I just added it to taste until it was good and sharp tasting
