  • tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons beef stock powder
  • 2 teaspoons chicken stock powder
  • cups water
  • ½ onion finely chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Using half of the butter, saute the onions until translucent.
  • Add the other half of the butter then the flour to make the roux, mixing constantly until golden brown. The best way to make a good roux is to use a whisk and make sure the butter does not burn.
  • Add the water and stock powder and continue to whisk until desired colour and consistency. Continuous stirring is needed to prevent lumps from forming. Add black pepper to taste.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until thickened.
