  1. Gently fry the onions in a mixture of butter and olive oil, to which a good grind of black pepper has been added.
  2. This should take about 20 minutes, cook over a very gentle heat and don't rush it. Slow frying caramelises the onions and gives a good colour.
  3. Once the onions have taken lots of colour, sprinkle the flour over them and stir well to absorb the flavoured fat.
  4. Add a good splash of your chosen wine or beer and mix well.
  5. Add the stock, pepper sauce and any optional flavouring, mix in the stock and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Season to taste and serve.


Experiment with the following additions, though not in the same gravy:

A tiny splash of gravy browning can be added for a darker gravy
