  • 2 cups broth or stock
  • 2 Tbsp. butter (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch

  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper (optional)
  • Salt


  1. Into a medium sauce pan measure the broth. Add the butter.
  2. Heat over high heat until it reaches a boil. Remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and milk or wine until smooth.
  4. Stir cornstarch mixture into hot broth. Stir well.
  5. Return to medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.
  6. Stir in the poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper.
  7. Taste and add salt (the amount will depend on how salty your broth was, and you might not need any at all).
