When I used this recipe, I used half button mushrooms and half crimini. I also added about 1/4 cup finely diced onion and sauteed it in the butter along with the mushrooms. Very good!
- 1 pound mushrooms*
- 4 cups fresh or canned chicken broth
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup dry sherry
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
Remove the stems from the mushrooms and chop the stems coarsely. Reserve the caps. Place the chopped stems in a saucepan and add the broth. Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes. Strain the broth and reserve. Slice the mushroom caps. Heat the butter in a saucepan and add the caps. Cook stirring, until lightly browned. Sprinkle with the flour and add salt and pepper. Using a wire whisk, stir in the broth and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes and add the sherry and cream. Heat thoroughly and serve hot.
