Last night I didn’t know what to do for dinner and really wasn’t in the mood to cook (ha!) So we had leftover grilled tri tip in the refrigerator. I thought that it might be nice with some gravy but I didn’t have any drippings to work with so I made this gravy that doesn’t need any drippings. It gets it’s flavor from the onions, garlic and broth and a richness from the butter and heavy cream. This would be great with any grilled meat since you don’t have the drippings to work with. If you want a smooth gravy, you could use an emulsion blender to blend up the onions or strain out the onions.
