Add 2 Tablespoons of flour, and whisk to combine to create a roux for your beef gravy.
Bring up to a simmer, and allow mixture to continue to barely simmer for 2 to 5 minutes. This will cook out the flour taste, but you don’t want it to boil.
Pour in the hot pan drippings from the Pot Roast (or beef stock if needed).
Whisk to combine and bring just to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer stirring occasionally until gravy thickens.
