Stick to Your Ribs Creamy Mushroom Sauce

This is a wonderfully earthy, rich, mushroom sauce. I first served it with broiled Spencer steaks and poured the steak drippings in the sauce. It's actually hearty enough to eat without meat, over potatoes or noodles. Enjoy

This was sooo delicious! I made this sauce and poured over portabello mushrooms. I followed the recipe except that I only used 1 shallot, cooking sherry, a small portabello mushroom chopped, and doubled the heavy cream. I also used this for the steak I served with dinner. This was a huge hit with my husband. He even used a piece of bread to soak up any left on his plate. WONDERFUL!!!

Excellent! If you love mushrooms, you will adore this intensely flavored rich cream sauce. I made the recipe as directed using sliced (not chopped) Cremini mushrooms and Burgundy wine.I served this with BBQ grilled steaks, Carrots Piedmontese #24156 and Great Greek Green Beans #71244. This sauce would dress up even the plainest entree and turn it into a festive dinner dish. Thanks, Jan Marie.
