Tomato Gravy

Follow our easy, step-by-step, photo illustrated instructions to learn how to make our Tomato Gravy, just like Mama made back in the day. Printable recipe included.

Tomato Gravy is perfect for breakfast. Just pour it over some homemade Buttermilk biscuits and dig in.

My friend Joyce, whom I met at the auctions I used to attend several years back, recently gave me 2 quarts of tomatoes she and her son-in-law had canned. They put up a large number of jars of tomatoes this year, and I was very grateful that she was willing to share a couple of quarts with me.

I knew right away that I wanted to make this Tomato Gravy recipe with them. Joyce and I talked about how she use to make tomato gravy and how my mother made it. We both like it with a bit of sugar in it.

Tomato Gravy is very easy to make. It’s great if you have home canned tomatoes, but you can also make it with store bought canned tomatoes if you prefer. Both will taste great. Smile.

I had fried up a couple of pieces of country ham in my cast iron skillet, and just made the gravy in the same skillet. My homemade biscuits were just about ready to come out of the oven. I’d highly suggest you try my Mama’s Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe to go with your Tomato Gravy.

Mama made Tomato Gravy during my younger days. It was a treat to pour that warm gravy over some of her biscuits to enjoy for breakfast in the morning. Yes, those were the good old days as they say.

Some bacon grease will help add some great flavor to your gravy. And, the little bit of sugar doesn’t make them sweet, but it adds to the flavor of the gravy as well. Mama always added a bit of sugar to most of the dishes she cooked.

Ready to give our recipe a try? Alright then, let’s head on out to the kitchen, and… Let’s Get Cooking!

Tomato Gravy Recipe – You’ll need these ingredients.

I’m blessed to have this quart of home canned tomatoes that my friend Joyce gave me a few weeks back. You can easily use the store bought crushed tomatoes in the can if you can’t get any homemade.

Place a skillet over Medium heat on your stove top. Add 2 Tablespoons of Bacon grease to the skillet.

I had just fried some country ham in this skillet so that’s what the red looking bits are in the pan. I added the bacon grease right in the skillet once I had removed the ham. Extra flavor. Smile.

Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of Flour over the bacon grease.

Stir the flour and the bacon grease together and let this cook until the flour starts to brown. Probably will only take a minute or two.

Add the tomatoes and the liquid.

If you’re using store bought tomatoes, I’d suggest a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes. You want some pieces of tomato in the gravy. You could also use whole tomatoes and chop them up a bit as they cook.

Add 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of Salt.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper.

Stir everything together and let it simmer and thicken. This will take about 5 minutes at the most.


Pour the warm tomato gravy over a couple of split homemade biscuits and enjoy.

3 tablespoons butter, divided use
1 large onion, chopped
1/4 cup garlic, chopped
2 baseball-size green tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 cups chicken broth
Creole seasoning, to taste
sugar, to taste
additional chicken broth

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter and the onion. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft. Add the garlic and another tablespoon of butter. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add the tomatoes and remaining butter. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes.

Add the broth, Creole seasoning, and sugar. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes are very soft.

Mix the cornstarch with enough broth to form a paste. Stir into the tomato gravy. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1-2 minutes or until the gravy thickens.

Beef and tomato gravy is an easy crock pot recipe your family will love.

My family loves this roast and the tomato gravy. You can serve this gravy over mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. We also like to make sandwiches with the beef and pour the gravy over the sandwich. This is a very versatile recipe your family will love. This recipe could be cut in half or even doubled for a crowd. It keeps well refrigerated for several days. You can make this recipe your own by using different spices. You could also make this in the oven if you prefer. I would cook at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours covered. You might add a little water to the pan as well and check after half the time to see if it needs more liquid.

Amish Tomato Gravy

There were many favorite foods in my youth. Working in the fields was hard work. As was taking care of the horses and cows and other animals.

Frankly, pretty much everything Mom made while I was a growing Amish boy is a favorite of mine.

Tomato Gravy, A Most-favorite Food

One of my very most favorite foods was home-made tomato gravy. It is good on mashed potatoes. And it is nose-twitching delicious on Amish home-made pancakes.

While there are variations, they pretty much have the same base &mdash tomato juice, butter, milk, and flour. And sometimes some flavor enhancements like salt and pepper.

I've used juicy diced tomatoes instead of tomato juice and I like it very much. Use less flour, though, and/or more milk.

The Original Amish Tomato Gravy Recipe

Here is a photo-copy of a tomato gravy recipe on page 7 of My Family's Recipes, a collection of 189 Amish recipes Mom had on hand, and others as collected over the years by siblings, all collated and hand written by my niece JoAnna Miller.

From My Family's Recipes and published here with permission.

The recipe (and the recipe book) was meant for family. After the recipes were written (in a way that would be understandable by the family), it was decided to make them publicly available.

Let's make a few changes to the original Amish recipe so it's easier to follow and make in a modern kitchen.

Amish Tomato Gravy Recipe

Here is the recipe, revised for a modern kitchen.

Amish Recipe Tomato Gravy

(Updated for modern kitchens.)

2 tablespoons white flour (more if whole wheat or oat flour)

4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) water

3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) butter

1/2 cup milk (adjust as necessary)

Salt and/or pepper to taste (optional)

In a cup or bowl, stir together the flour and the 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) water to make a thin paste. Set aside.

Put the 1/2 cup water and the tomato juice into a saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil.

Stir the paste made in the first step to lift any flour that has settled in the bottom of the cup or bowl. Then slowly pour it into the saucepan, stirring all the while to prevent the flour from clumping up.

Let the saucepan contents return to a boil, stirring to keep it from clumping. After it comes to a boil and has a chance to thicken up a bit, turn off the heat.

Stir in the butter. Add enough milk to get a gravy of pleasant consistency.

Salt and/or pepper may be added to taste or omitted if desired or required by a diet.

You'll notice some quantities were added or adjusted, the ones an Amish cook would just know. You may wish to adjust them further according to your preference for a tomato gravy.

Use tomato gravy for pancake topping, topping on a biscuit, on mashed potatoes, on meats &mdash pretty much anywhere that traditional gravy could be used.

I make many of my recipes super versatile and this one is no exception. I called for diced tomatoes, but if you have crushed instead that would be fine. If you have whole, canned tomatoes you can cut them up or throw them in a blender very briefly.

Likewise, I used chicken stock, but beef would be good too. Or use broth instead of stock if that’s what you have. If you don’t have either, just use water. It won’t be quite as rich, but it will still be delicious.

Easy Tomato and Onion Gravy

Q. Why is a tomato round and red?
A. Because if it was long, skinny, and green, it would be a bean.

My grandmother used to cook a batch of this sauce every week, and use it for a variety of purposes. I learned to make this recipe by avidly watching her and, bit by bit, being allowed to help as I became old enough to navigate a knife and a hot stove.

You can use this recipe as a simple gravy for cooked meats, as a sauce over vegetables, or even with crusty bread or a quick bowl of pasta. It’s a recipe that can be easily varied to suit your taste buds, or the meal at hand. It’s even good on pizza bases or as a foundation for spaghetti bolognese.

One thing chronic illness has taught me is that food can be a medicine, and I have come to appreciate that this particular recipe is jam-packed full of goodness.

The onions and garlic are a good source of sulfur. Sulfur has anti-cancer, anti-microbial and detoxification properties, and supports blood vessel health, gut and heart health, immune cell support and liver health. The parsley is full of vitamins K, A, C, B group vitamins and anti-oxidants.

Cooked tomatoes and tomato paste are packed with lycopene, a powerful anti-oxidant which has been shown to have a preventative effect against breast, skin, prostate, lung and liver cancer.

Chicken stock or bone broth calms digestion, heals the gut lining, and is a good source of protein, amino acids and anti-inflammatory compounds.

What I love most about this recipe though, is that it tastes so yummy, it is simple to prepare, and it makes getting those extra servings of vegetables into your diet that much easier. And it always reminds me of Marga, my maternal grandmother, whose legacy is, in part, her wonderful recipes.

Truth be told, when I add Worchestershire Sauce to this recipe it also reminds me of my grandfather, Ceddie.

As kids we called this sauce Ceddie Sauce because my grandfather ate it on everything. He even had us convinced that it was a picture of him on the bottle! (It’s not, of course, but I still pretend that it is!)

The Worchestershire sauce gives a nice tang for barbeque meats or sausages.

If you want to eat this sauce with seafood or chicken a dash of white wine is nice. Use red wine for red meats.


1 large onion – diced, 1 clove of crushed garlic, 3 cups of diced fresh tomatoes or 1 can of tinned tomatoes, 1 to 2 cups of chicken or vegetable stock, 1 small diced red capsicum (bell pepper,) 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs – I used some green onion and parsley, 1 tablespoon of ghee, butter, or olive oil, salt and pepper.

*Optional – 1 tablespoon of Worchestershire Sauce, chilli or a splash of wine, a pinch of sugar. If your tomatoes are store bought or canned, and the capsicum is not ripe enough you may want just a pinch of sugar to counter the acidity in the sauce. If the capsicum IS ripe and sweet, you won’t need it.

Place the onion in a large pot or frypan with the fat. Cook over gentle heat until the onion starts to soften. Then tip in the capsicum and cook for two to three minutes, stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t stick.

Add the chopped tomatoes and chicken stock. Increase the heat and bring to a simmer. Confession: I have a ridiculous amount of tomato plants in my garden this season. Ridiculous. So many varieties. But what can top a home-grown tomato? Expect more tomato based recipes soon…

Now add the tomato paste, garlic, herbs and seasonings.

Stir well, reduce heat and simmer gently for thirty minutes. The sauce will thicken, so do check and stir occasionally. Enjoy!

That’s last night’s dinner below. A grilled organic T-bone with a side salad of mixed greens, olives, fermented vegetables, radish, walnuts, feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
