Question:

Can you please solve a dispute. When you make Sunday dinner and use tomatoes and meat - is that called Gravy? Anything without meat is considered sauce. If I am misguided, please let me know.


Answer: 

Gravy is a sauce made from meat juices, usually combined with a liquid such as chicken or beef broth, wine or milk and thickened with flour, cornstarch, or some other thickening agent. A gravy may also be the simple juices left in the pan after the meat, poultry, or fish has been cooked.
