Gravy Amazing Marmite Recipe

By the wlr team

The most amazing thing about this gravy is that it tastes nothing like marmite! It actually comes from a budget student cookery book. Better for you than granules, and cheaper too. The meat juices could be added to the sauce if required. The gravy is so yummy that it is good as a thick, soupy drink, too!
