Beef Au Jus
This is the most minimalist method for doing a quick au jus for your prime rib of beef.
Dovetailing Tip: This Au Jus recipes tastes great with both roast (can be used instead of gravy) and with French dip sandwiches. Make enough to use day 4 to dip your french dip sandwiches in.
|1/4 cup||beef fat drippings from a prime rib or other roast beef (see footnote)|
|1 1/2 tablespoon||all-purpose flour|
|2 cups||beef broth|
|salt and ground black pepper to taste|
Melt fat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk flour into beef fat; cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.
Pour beef broth into fat mixture; increase heat to high and bring mixture to a boil.
Boil mixture until it thickens slightly; season with salt and pepper to taste.
