Tender Pork Gravy

I can seriously eat this Creamy Pork Gravy from a spoon, it’s so good…. It’s actually quite easy to make and requires only a handful of ingredients, not to mention how moist the pork comes out due to the cooking technique…

I was over a ladies house who happened to serve this delicious gravy, I couldn’t get over how good it tasted with mashed potatoes and ended up asking her for the recipe. Her version was with water but I ended up tweaking a little here and there but the recipe still remains delicious! Ketchup really brings out a beautiful orange color and gives a nice boost of sourness without even detecting any ketchup in the gravy. Any meat would probably work for this gravy but the cooking time might vary since each kind of meat may differ in the time it takes to cook. I highly recommend simmering the pork over low heat as that really makes the meat tender. This is a very delicious gravy recipe that is a definite remake in my kitchen. Enjoy:)

    1. Thank you Katya! I used the McCormick Poultry Gravy Mix, it looks like a powder and I believe you can find it in bulk at Coscto.
