    How to Thicken Pan Gravy

    If a thicker pan gravy is desired, stir 1/4 cup water into 2 to 3 Tbsp. flour in small bowl. Remove meat and vegetables from pan; bring liquid to boil on medium-high heat. Gradually whisk flour mixture into pan liquid until thickened to desired consistency.

    Substitute

    A 2 lb. beef rump roast can be substituted for chuck roast. Cook as directed until tender, about 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
