  • 1 teaspoon (2.33 g) ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon (1.64 g) garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon (1.64 g) onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon (4.06 g) ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon(1.01 g) dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon (8.12 g) chili powder
  • 2-3 tablespoon (30-45 ml) canola or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon (16-18 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon (14.1 g) tomato paste
  • 2 cups (474 ml) beef stock or broth
  • 2 teaspoon taco seasoning optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add flour, black pepper, garlic and onion powder, cumin, oregano, and chili powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Place a medium saucepan over medium heat, add oil until it is hot.  
  • Stir in the flour mixture and keep whisking until fragrant and slightly deepened in color, about 1 minute. Do not let it burn. 
  • Whisk in the tomato paste and then carefully pour in the beef broth, a little at a time while whisking constantly. Add taco seasoning, if desired. Then season with salt to taste. 
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Continue cooking stirring often, until the sauce thickens - about 5- 7 minutes, sauce will continue to thicken as it cools down. 
  • Remove and let it cool.
