2 tblsp flour
1 cup canned bouillon or 1 or 2 bouillon cubes dissolved in 1 cup boiling water

Rub your pan with garlic clove. Add flour to the melted butter, stirring continuously, to make a medium brown roux. Slowly stir in the cup of bouillon, continuing to stir, while heating the sauce to the boiling point to thicken. Add seasonings to taste.
