2 tbsp flour

Stir in the flour as the butter melts.

3

Simmer

Heat over medium-low, stirring frequently with a whisk or spatula to keep any chunks from sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.

4

Toasty brown

Cook to desired color (4-7 minutes). A nice foxy Brown is good. Remove from heat. You can make extra and store it in the freezer or go ahead and use it in a sauce right away.
