DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a heavy medium-size saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the shallots and garlic and saute until transparent, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Then add the cognac and flame.
  • To do this, remove the saucepan from the heat and touch a lighted match to the edge of the pan; the fumes of the cognac will ignite.
  • Holding the pan away from you, allow the flames to die down naturally.
  • Add the stock and cream and simmer over low heat until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and continue to simmer 3 to 5 minutes more.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
