Caramelized Onion Gravy for Bangers and Mash

Traditional Irish bangers sausage with mashed potatoes and a caramelized onion gravy. Our onion gravy uses stout beer like Guinness but a fantastic variation (that's more common in England) is to use red wine instead. Both are just delicious!

Heat a skillet over medium low. Add 4 Tbsp of butter and stir until melted. Add the sliced onions and cook them for 10 minutes or until very soft. Turn the heat down to low and put the lid on the pan, continue cooking 10 more minutes.
Add the flour, combine with the onions, and cook for 1 minute.
Add the beef broth, Guinness stout beer (and brown sugar if adding the stout), and Worchestershire sauce to the pan. Cook over medium-high heat until the gravy starts to bubble.
Turn the sauce down to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes until the gravy is reduced, and the gravy starts to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
