Basic Ramen Gravy

This is the first gravy recipe that I’ve seen that’s made using a ramen flavor packet. I think it might be pretty good on some biscuits and it's a good use for those leftover flavor packs. This recipe also doesn't actually contain any noodles, so FYI. Also, I didn't quite like the way the original author said "2 tbsp fat", but for that general category, I can't think of a better way to put it

  • 2 tbsp fat (vegetable oil, lard, butter, or shortening)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup water (for southern chicken gravy, maybe part water and part milk)
  • 1 ramen flavor packet

At medium heat, stir fat and flour together and cook for a few minutes. Slowly stir in water. Stir in soup base and simmer (stirring constantly) until it thickens. Notes: This recipe makes enough to cover 1 brick's worth of noodles, and it scales up nicely (remember, 4 tbsp = 1/4 cup). I've only tried this with the chicken flavor, but it should work just as well with beef or pork.
