I do love a roast dinner especially beef, and it has got to have horseradish sauce on the side, so I was more than happy to try out Knorr’s Gravy Pots. They come in three ‘flavours'; Beef Gravy, Onion Gravy and Chicken Gravy. Each 28 g pot makes 280ml of gravy which apparently serves four people, we like a lot of gravy so I would need to use two pots to make enough gravy for us. The gravy is very easy to make up, 280ml of warm water in a saucepan with the gravy pot, brought to the boil whilst whisking and then left to boil for a minute. It is then ready. The beef gravy looked homemade and tasted home made. It wasn’t too thin or too thick, I like thick gravy personally and it was to my liking. My daughter loved it and said it was so much better than what we normally have.
The gravy is free from artificial preservatives and flavours and has no added MSG. Unfortunately it is not gluten free which is such a shame and a bit disappointing as I would love my son to be able to have it and to be able to add it to soups and casseroles.
I just had to try the Onion gravy pot with sausages and mash, all in the name of research, of course. I fried some onions to give it extra body, and because I love them and what better excuse. The gravy was lovely, you will not be disappointed. The gravy is rich, not too salty or overpowering.
So, I do recommend Knorr gravy pots, which incidentally have won product of the year in gravy and stock category, they are easy to make and taste great but I do wish that they were gluten free because my son would really love some ‘proper’ tasting gravy.
Disclosure: I was sent the meat and vegetables to produce a roast dinner along with the Knorr gravy pots.
