=== 🍽🍸🥩 RECIPE ===
1 Carrot, Diced
1 Medium Onion, Diced
1 Stalk Celery, Diced
4 Tablespoons (58g) Butter
1/4 Cup (35g) All-Purpose Flour
32 Ounces (945ml) Hot Beef Stock
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
2 – 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1/2 Teaspoon Whole Black Pepper Corns
1 Bay Leaf
Salt & Pepper

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the carrot, onion and celery, season with salt and pepper. Cook, occasionally stirring until the vegetables are soft and golden – 7 to 8 minutes.

Stir in the flour to make a roux and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the flour turns golden brown, 6 to 10 minutes. The darker the roux, the darker the sauce.

Add the hot beef stock, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Then add the tomato paste, garlic, peppercorns and bay leaf.

Raise the heat, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and let simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally until reduced by half. About 35 minutes.

Pour sauce through a fine meshed strainer and discard the solids. Sauce will be thinner than a regular gravy.
