In Purrsuit of Flavors: Simple Sauces

Today we are joining our friends at The Canadian Cats and Easy Blog for In Purrsuit of Flavors: Simple Sauces

This recipe come from our resident Chef at Cat Scouts, Pete H. He was really busy this holiday season with our North Pole Trip and Christmas and Mew Years. He is glad this is just something fast and tasty. 

Creamy Mushroom Sauce  I have used this on chicken, Hamburgers Steak and Pork This creamy mushroom sauce is quick and easy to prepare and goes with anything!


½ small onion diced
1 tablespoon butter
12 ounces mushrooms brown or white, sliced
salt and ground pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
½ cup white wine
½ cup chicken broth
⅔ cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons fresh parsley

1. Saute onion in butter until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
2. Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook until mushrooms have released juices. Add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
3.Add the wine to deglaze and loosen any bits off the pan and simmer a few minutes until the wine has almost evaporated.
4.Add the chicken broth and cream. Simmer for 5 minutes or until reduced by half.
5. To thicken the sauce further, combine cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water (or broth) and mix well. Add cornstarch mixture into the broth a little bit at a time to reach desired consistency. You may not need all of the cornstarch mixture.
6. Let simmer 1 minute.
7. Season with parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

That sounds ever so scrumptious!! We love almost anything with mushrooms on it:)

(Here we would likely sub in arrowroot or tapioca for the cornstarch...we mostly do not use grain products...)

This sauce sounds delicious. Hopefully freezable cause I'm the only sauce nut around here. It would be yummy with pretty well all meats.
