This is all there is to it. Cook the butter and flour in a pan over medium heat stirring frequently until it turns medium to dark brown. Whisk in beef broth or stock and bring to a boil. You have gravy. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders or whatever you like.

It also works with chicken stock for chicken gravy.

It's a bit off topic from the gravy, but if you have a lot of meat and aren't sure if you can eat that many sandwiches, you can always make some into shredded beef tacos, too. Shred the beef with a fork and throw the back into the crockpot with some cumin, coriander, onion, peppers (hot, sweet, or both, according to your taste) and a bit of salt if it needs it. Let cook for a couple hours. Then, right before serving, add some fresh chopped cilantro and a bit of lime juice to taste and serve with your favorite toppings in warmed tortillas.

Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.
