DIRECTIONS

  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Stir in the garlic and shallot, and cook until the shallot has softened and turned translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, then stir in the mushrooms once the butter has melted.
  • Cook and stir the mushrooms until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour in the beef broth, wine, and Worcestershire sauce; season with the bay leaf and thyme, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Once simmering, season to taste with salt and pepper, reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue to cook, uncovered until the sauce reduces slightly, about 30 minutes.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water, and stir into the simmering sauce until thickened.
  • Remove the bay leaf before serving.
