Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup bacon grease
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • Kosher salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Heat bacon grease in medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add in flour and whisk constantly until mixture turns light brown, about 1 minute.

  2. Slowly whisk in milk. Stir in pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; season with salt and additional pepper to taste. Use immediately on chicken fried steak, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, or biscuits.
