Homemade Mushroom Sauce Recipe Step-By-Step Instructions
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add the finely chopped shallots to the skillet and sauté them until they become translucent and release their juices.
Once the shallots are cooked, add the sliced shiitake mushrooms to the skillet and sauté the mushrooms until they become tender and golden brown.
Allow the wine to cook off slightly, enhancing the flavor of the sauce.
Sprinkle the Italian herbs (minced parsley, oregano, basil…) over the mushrooms and wine mixture.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon into the skillet, adding a touch of acidity to brighten the flavors.
Incorporate the espagnole sauce into the mixture, giving it a rich and savory taste.
Add Mrs. Dash, kosher salt or a salt substitute to season the sauce according to your preference.
If the sauce is too thick, add beef broth gradually to achieve the desired consistency.
Turn off the heat and prepare the compound butter and fold a slice of compound butter into the sauce, allowing it to melt and enrich the flavors. Stir gently until the butter is fully incorporated, creating a silky texture.
By following these step-by-step instructions, you can create a delectable mushroom sauce that adds a gourmet touch to your favorite dishes. Experiment with different fine dining cuts of meat and explore the versatility of this sauce. Happy Cooking!
