Bisto is a brand name for a granulated gravy base. This base is supposed to be mixed with meat drippings from cooking, but you do not need these drippings to make a savoury gravy. Use Bisto gravy powder in place of cornstarch as a thickener for any gravy recipe. The additional flavourings in the Bisto will make your gravy taste better than using cornstarch alone, even if you do not use meat drippings.
