Easy Sunday Gravy
With a little leftover chuck roast, you can shave hours off the cooking time for this rich, meaty tomato sauce.
Why This Recipe Works
Using tender leftover chuck for our Easy Sunday Gravy was a good start, but to approximate Sunday gravy, we needed meatier flavor. We found the answer in the form of hot Italian sausages. Without the benefit of a long cooking time to build a slow, deep backbone of flavor, we turned to potent ingredients like garlic, red wine, tomato paste, and a generous amount of oregano to flavor our Easy Sunday Gravy. Sautéing the onions in the fat rendered from the sausage and preparing the sauce in that same pan helped build additional flavor.
