White Roux

by Chef John Folse

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour

In a heavy bottom sauté pan, melt butter over medium high heat. Using a wire whisk, add flour, stirring constantly until the flour and butter are well blended and bubbly. Do not brown. You must continue whisking during the cooking process, as flour will tend to scorch. This classical style roux is popular in Creole cooking and will thicken three cups of stock to a sauce consistency.
