    Got me there....I have used a package when desperate and then dressed it up with spices, onion, etc....but without the pan drippings I have no good response, but I will be interested to see what others offer.

    onion, celery, sliced carrots, potato optional, butter in a metal pan. broil until veggies are carmelized, add water or broth to pan stirring and scraping the bits that stuck to the bottom. run thru a food mill or food processor and simmer until thickened. salt and pepper to taste!

    Use beef boullion cubes and make to directions.

    Bring to a boil on the stove.

    Dig that Quick Shake from your Tupperware kit and put in a cup of cold water and about 3 or 4 TBSP flour.

    Shake well and stir into your boullion. Cook til thickened.

    i dont think you can have that..but you know what i always have on hand is kitchen bouquet..if you fried up some onions and mushrooms and tossed in that for good measure you would have some brown gravy.

    um... not to be blunt, but:

    gravy = thickened, seasoned drippings.

    Without drippings, it's just a sauce. It's simply not possible to make actual gravy without drippings.
