1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
strained drippings from the roast, about 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup
2-3 cups warm meat, turkey, or vegetable stock (depending on thickness of the gravy desired)
salt and pepper, to taste

Place flour in a small skillet; cook and stir until it browns slightly. Set aside. Strain drippings from the roasting pan. Using a heavy bottomed skillet or saute pan, heat at least 1/3 cup of the drippings, up to 1/2 cup if available. Using a roux whisk, whisk in the browned flour to make a smooth mixture. Over medium heat, slowly whisk in the warmed broth and whisk constantly until the gravy has thickened. Taste, correct the seasoning with additional salt and pepper as needed.
