Classic Mushroom Sauce

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Dancer

Once you know how to make this sauce, you will want to put it on top of everything. The wine and the shallots especially bring out the flavors of meat and poultry. This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days. Rewarm over low heat before serving.

This sauce was great, but i did make slight changes to it. I threw in the shallots and 3 cloves of garlic after melting the butter. And I increased the red wine to 1/2 cup. other than that I made it as is, and it was great. Thank you for the easy recipe. I served it with beef steak.
