Beef Gravy

This was good, I made a lot of changes though because if not it would have been pretty bland.  We all enjoyed it though in the end.

1 pound ground beef
1 can (14 1/2 oz) beef broth
1 small onion (chopped, I used 2 tsp)
2 tb dried parsley
1 tb dried basil
1 tb garlic powder (I added another tsp also)
1 tsp seasoned salt (I used 2 tsp total)
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tb cornstarch
Mashed Potatoes or Cooked Pasta

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. 
Add 1-1/2 cups beef broth, onion, parsley, basil, garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper. 
Simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until onion is tender. 
In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining broth until smooth. Stir into beef mixture. 
Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. 
Serve with mashed potatoes or pasta.  
Yield: 3 cups.

To prevent lumps when thickening with cornstarch, don't mix cornstarch with a hot liquid. 
Combine it with a cold or room temperature liquid and gradually add it to the hot mixture in a skillet or saucepan.
