Mushroom Sauce

This mushroom sauce recipe is a perfect accompaniment for so many things.

It is a great sauce for steak, roast beef, chopped steak, meatloaf, pork chops or chicken.

This sauce would even work well over other vegetables for a vegetarian meal option. Try it on quinoa or brown rice. Fantastic.

Mushrooms in cream sauce is an easy dinner recipe that you can prepare while your main course is cooking.

It makes any plain meat “entertainment worthy” while still being and easy dinner recipe.

Works for me!

Variation:

  • The sherry adds a nice flavor touch, but if you prefer not to use it, simply leave it out, or replace it with your favorite red wine.
  • You can use canned mushrooms for this recipe too, although I think the fresh work much better. It is just a taste preference. Use whichever you prefer.
  • The combination of milk and cream provides a nice richness to the recipe. You can use all milk, but the lower the fat the “thinner” the taste. Whole milk is best for a sauce.

    JUST ONE MORE INGREDIENT

    I FOUND IF YOU ADD A 1/4 CUP OF BEEF BROTH A MINUTE BEFORE THE MILK IT ADDS A GREAT BROWN COLOR AND ANOTHER LAYER OF FLAVOR.
