Cream Cheese as a thickening agent for a gravy:

What say the FDB?

(red wine, creole butter injection liquid, and brisket drippings)

Hmm... never would've thought about it. Experiment for us and report back.

It'll work. Add a pat of butter if need be as well and swirl all in over medium heat. Probably pretty nice addition to the brisket drippings. Just remove the fat from them, maybe a bit of water for balance.

1.) Use good, brand name (read: Philadelphia) cream cheese. Wal-mart brand does not seem to work too well.

2.) Probably would have been wise to soften/melt the cream cheese before putting it (cold, straight from the fridge) in the already reducing sauce.

3.) I could use an immersion blender--lots of little bitty white clumps of cream cheese now. Hopefully they will melt.

Off tha chain. Perfectly thick. Took away some of the saltiness.

Sounds deliciious, but as healthy as fried cheese!!

As already mentioned, report your findings.
