    This gravy is fantastic because it gives you the rich creamy texture you want from a gravy, but the red wine actually gives it just a little bite; a bit of a kick to help break up the richness undoubtedly on the plate.

    Most gravies start with drippings or fat from the meat you are cooking. For this recipe, you don’t have to worry about that extra step. Butter takes the place of the fat. And if you opt for a veggie stock, you can make it vegetarian.

    Now, don’t worry about the red wine in this Red Wine Gravy and not being able to serve this to a certain group of folks under 21. The alcohol in the wine in this recipe cooks out as you are making it, meaning it is safe for everyone to enjoy.
