RECIPE # 5068 - TOMATO GRAVY WITH BISCUITS, September 11, 2013

Posted: Updated:


Tomato Gravy

  • A black iron skillet or a good sauce pan.
  • A quart (2 cans) of canned tomatoes or stewed tomatoes.
  • Heaping tablespoon of bacon grease. You can use lard but bacon grease tastes much better. Note: If you don't have bacon grease, you can use sausage grease.
  • 2-3 tablespoons of self-rising flour
  • salt & pepper to taste

Here's how the magic happens:

You want to heat a good heaping tablespoon of bacon grease in the black iron skillet on high until hot and bubbly. This only takes a minute as grease can burn quickly.
Put 2-3 tablespoons of flour evenly throughout grease in the pan.
As it begins to brown, stir around. Then let it get even more brown and stir until all flour is very brown (be careful to not let it burn). Then put your 2 cans of tomatoes in and stir, reduce heat to low. Add salt and pepper to taste. If it's too thin for your taste, add more flour to your grease next time before adding the tomatoes. If it's too thick, add a little water.


Homemade Biscuits

  • cookie sheet
  • 3 cups of self-rising flour (you probably won't use all the flour. Watch your consistency to tell how much you need to use).
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of grease (Crisco)
  • PAM Original Cooking Spray
  • Softened butter

Here's how the magic happens:

Grease your cookie sheet with some Crisco or PAM Original Cooking Spray


Warm 2 tablespoons of grease in microwavable bowl to soften a little. Mix 2 cups of flour, 2 cups of buttermilk and softened grease in mixing bowl and stir. You may need to pour in more buttermilk until you have a good dough consistency. You want it to be tacky (when stirring it's hard to sling off the spoon) but still little wet so they have a gooey texture.


Then using your left over cup of flour, you add spread your flour around the inside of your mixing bowl and over the top of your biscuit mix to make the biscuits roll able on your hands. 


Roll your biscuits and flatten on cookie sheet. 


Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. In my electric stove, I put my oven on low broil at the end to brown the tops of the  biscuits. 


Take out and smother with butter!
