Roux Sauce  Ingredients

– Butter  – All-purpose flour

Step 1

Melt butter over medium-low heat in a pan on the stove. Once it melts, add in flour and whisk it through.

Step 2

Cook until the flour and butter combine completely. It will begin to thicken and bubble. If making a white roux, you can stop here and take it off the heat.

Step 3

For a blond roux, cook for 10 minutes while stirring as necessary to keep it from burning. If making a brown roux, cook it for up to 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
