Our family loves Au Jus but it is not always easy to make when I'm in a time crunch. I decided to come up with a homemade mix that would be similar (but superior) to the store-bought envelopes of the mix. This turned out even better than I dreamed. There is so much flavor that comes from the mix and you can have the homemade taste in a matter of minutes!
Homemade mixes are so good and so inexpensive to make. I have been making up so many lately because I prefer feeding my family good quality meals with real ingredients and let's be honest...I also like to save money. Recently I have made taco seasoning, a "Bisquick" style mix and a chili seasoning mix, to name a few!
Homemade Au Jus Mix
4 T. beef bouillon granules
4 T. cornstarch
1 T. plus 1 tsp. dehydrated onion
2 tsp. parsley
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Place all of the above ingredients in a blender. Process until the mixture is a nice powder. Store the mix in a small container with a lid or a small canning jar.

To prepare the au jus, mix 3 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons of the mix with 2 cups of water and heat in a saucepan over medium heat for about 15 minutes. By then, the au jus should be heated and slightly thickened. Serve and enjoy!
The 3 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 tsp. equals one of the envelope packs you can buy at the store.
Leftover au jus will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
