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.
- Bisto is a brand name for a granulated gravy base.
- Use Bisto gravy powder in place of cornstarch as a thickener for any gravy recipe.
Whisk together the Bisto and cold water.
Bring 1 cup of water and a bullion cube to a boil over medium heat to dissolve the bullion cube.
Stir the Bisto and cold-water mixture into the boiling water, and continue to heat it until the gravy thickens.
- Change the type of bullion used for making different flavoured gravies. For instance, use chicken bullion for chicken gravy or a vegetarian-based bullion for a gravy without meat flavour.
