Steve Evans Sausage Gravy

Brown 1lb. Steve Evans Sausage in a big skillet over medium heat.

As the sausage is just turning brown, stir in exactly 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, and coat all the meat.

As soon as the Sausage is coated, pour in one can of evaporated milk and 1 1/2 cans of water.

Now turn the temp to medium-high, or until the gravy starts to bubble slightly, and stir until gravy has the desired thickness, be careful to stir continuously as you may scorch your gravy. The milk proteins will scorch without continuous stirring.

When your gravy has thickened, you may need to add a little salt and pepper, the flour and milk addition dilute these spices and they may need to be added back.

Just before serving, squeeze the juice from 1/2 a fresh lemon to give your gravy a little added zest.

If you get your gravy too thick, just add a little regular milk to get it back to your desired thickness.
