- Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl and set aside.
- Do not rinse out this pan- we're going to use it again in the upcoming steps.

- Increase the pan heat to medium-high and, in the previously-used pan, melt another 1 tablespoon butter.

- Drain, rinse immediately with cold water and then drain again.
- Toss with 1 Tbsp olive oil and set aside.
- Now to start the sauce!
- Over medium heat melt the remaining butter in a saucepan.
- Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly to keep it from browning.
- Gradually add the chicken broth, cream, and vermouth.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes.
