Chef Jason's Red Eye Gravy

Chef Jason's Ham/Pork Chops and Red Eye Gravy!

I made Red Eye Gravy for the first time tonight, it's very similar to what my father called Brown grease which my son loves on ham.  Basically it's the drippings from the ham and pork chops combined with a tablespoon of butter, 1 tsp. of honey, 1/2 tsp of brown sugar (light or dark), 1 Tbsp. of white cooking wine and 1 cup of fresh brewed coffee.  Ok this is a little amped up version of the old southern staple.  It was a bit too bitter so I added some sweet and a little vinegar touch with the wine, dip the meat in this gravy and you end up with a blooming burst of flavor for your pallet.

Till Next Time,
