Red Eye Gravy (coffee)


  • pan drippings from sausages steaks or chops
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 cups coffee


  • Add a tablespoon or so of the brown sugar to the pan, 2 cups of coffee and crank up the heat. Reduce the liquid to just a few tablespoons, adding additional coffee to the pan if you like it strong tasting. If desired, you can mellow out the gravy with a few tablespoons of chilled butter, whisked in off the heat until melted. Spoon sauce over cooked meat.
