Excellent recipe! I made it exactly as written the first time and served it with meatballs. Very good. I made it again the next day but this time I used beef broth instead of vegetable stock. I could not see or taste any difference. Both were excellent. Will be serving this at an upcoming wedding even for 200 guests.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the mushrooms and sauté until brown, about 7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour; it will become very pasty.
  4. Cook this roux for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. It will stick to the bottom of the pan a little bit; that's okay.
  6. 2.
  7. Stir in the stock, wine, soy sauce, and pepper, and bring to a boil.
  8. Cook the sauce at a lively simmer for 5 minutes, stirring almost constantly and scraping any crusty bits that adhere to the bottom of the pan.
  9. Serve in a sauceboat.
