To Make Gravy-Remove meat and vegetables to a hot platter and keep warm. Pour off all but about 1/4 cup of fat in the pan, add water to make 2 1/2 cups. Combine 1/4 cup of flour with cold water to make a smooth paste, add to the water and fat and cook and stir until the resulting gravy is smooth and thickened. Add more seasoning, if necessary, and serve at once.
