  5. ½ teaspoon rough chopped fresh thyme

Preparation Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a 1-quart saucepan set over medium heat. Add flour to pan and stir to incorporate and form a roux. Continue to stir until roux becomes dark brown, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Add shallots, garlic, and thyme and continue to cook, stirring often, until shallots and garlic are fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour Worcestershire sauce into pan and cook until nearly evaporated, about 1 minute.
  4. Add beef broth and beer and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil until it begins to thicken, then reduce to a simmer.
  5. Add Kitchen Bouquet® and continue to cook until sauce has reduced, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Serve immediately or set aside and reheat when ready to use.
  6. Fry the french fries; top with gravy, cheese and green onions.
