    If you are on the hunt for the perfect mushroom gravy you’ve come to the right place! It’s a reader favorite and readers have even made vegan versions!

    This gravy would be great with my Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Old Fashioned Meatloaf.

    This mushroom gravy could also be a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner!

    Just use chicken broth in place of beef broth and you could even use some of the pan drippings from the turkey in place of the butter.

    YUM!!!

    Don’t be intimidated by gravy, it really is easy to make and if you follow my no fail method it will be a success every time!

    And not only does this mushroom gravy taste great on meatloaf it’s also great on steak!!

    So to make this mushroom gravy start off cooking the chopped onion and mushrooms in olive oil, butter or pan drippings (your choice).

    I like to cook them until they are nicely browned. <– This is where a lot of the flavor and dark brown color comes from in this gravy so don’t skip this step.

    Next, add in the garlic and give it a stir, it cooks quickly and you don’t want to burn the garlic so be ready for the next steps.

    Now, this is the secret step to making your gravy successful—just stir in the flour with the mushrooms.

    Yes, that is it!!  Whisk in the broth and you will have a smooth gravy every single time!  See that wasn’t so hard! And while you are whisking be sure to scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan!

    Which mushrooms to use?

    My favorite is baby portabella because my grocery store always has them in stock and they aren’t very expensive. However, this recipe will work with other types of mushrooms as well!

    Try cremini, porcini, shiitakes, chanterelles, and even regular white button mushrooms.
