Balsamic Beef Gravy
To make the gravy, pour the leftover liquid into a small pot through a metal strainer to catch the fresh rosemary and thyme leaves. If you didn't use fresh you don't have to use the strainer just pick out the bay leaves
Bring the liquid to a simmer over medium low heat.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tbsp arrowroot (or tapicoa) and 1 tbsp of water until the flour is completely dissolved.
Pour the arrowroot and water mixture into the simmering pot with the leftovers from the roast. Stir well.
After 1-2 minutes, the mixture should reach a consistency you prefer. Remove from heat or it will continue to thicken. If gets too thick, add water 1 tablespoon at a time.
If you don't have fresh herbs, leave out the rosemary and add 1/2 to 1 tsp dried thyme.
