Wife heard or read about this and decided to give it a try. It's not as good as stove top made roux, but it's not bad...I've had a lot worst.

It's a half of cup of flour, half cup of oil, cast iron skillet. Set the oven for 350 bake for hour and half

I've done it before. I agree with you. Not bad, but not the best. I've used it when I have to get a roux going while doing ten other things at the same time. It's perfect for that.

Yeah, I read about this on Cook's Country. Their method calls for 3/4 c flour. Toast flour over medium heat, stirring constantly, until just beginning to brown, 5 minutes. Off heat whisk in 1/2 cup vegetable oil until smooth. Cover and put in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Use a heavy cast-iron dutch oven. If using a lightweight pot, add 10 minutes to oven time.

Has anyone ever tried something other than vegetable oil in a roux? Butter? Lard?

I like to use butter. have used veg oil, olive oil, margarine, lard, bacon grease, pan drippings.

Any fat with flour will make a roux, which to use depends on what you're cooking. I like to stick to the "real" stuff.

I prefer not to use oil. Duck fat is the best.
