  1. Step 1

    Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onions with a pinch of salt for 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until deeply golden and caramelised. Add a splash of water if the onions start to catch. It will take a while for the onions to caramelise but keep adding a few splashes of water at the start of cooking to help speed up the process.
  2. Step 2

    Stir in the vinegar, garlic and herbs, fry for another minute, then sprinkle over the flour and stir until it has dissolved. Pour over the stock, a little at a time, stirring to prevent any lumps of flour. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the gravy is thickened to your liking. Season with salt, pepper and a few dashes of worcestershire sauce and the mustard.
