Thanks Andy for the info on refreezing liquid food items. I did feel that the whole block was meant as a day's supply for a restaurant. I had visions of her getting out a hack saw and cutting off a piece. And having never refrozen any liquid food item, I didn't go that route.

You can also just make a slurry, which is a thick mixture of water and flour. Whisk it until smooth, then add it to your thin beefy broth, while continuing to whisk it in. Let it simmer on low for 5 or 10 minutes to cook the flour. If it comes up lumpy, just strain your gravy before serving..
