Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 8 ounces (225g) thinly sliced baby portabella mushrooms or white button mushrooms
  • ½ cup (70g) finely chopped onion
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup (30g) all-purpose flour or cup for cup gluten-free flour
  • 3 cups (710ml) beef broth/stock or vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Sautee mushrooms and onions until they are nicely browned (7 min). Add in garlic and stir until fragrant (about 30 sec)

  2. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the broth and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce to a simmer.

  3. Simmer until thickened, then remove from heat. Taste for salt and pepper and season to taste.

Recipe Notes

 

  1. To achieve that dark brown color be sure to brown your mushrooms well and scrape up all the brown bits at the bottom of the pan when stirring in the beef broth.
