Mushroom Sauce Recipe



  • 4 ounces Dried mushrooms
  • 12 ounces assorted Fresh Mushrooms - chanterelle, cultivated, shiitake, oyster

  • 1/4 cup Sherry or Madeira
  •  1/2 cup Whipping Cream

  • Soak for at least 2 hours or up to 8.
  • When mushrooms are soft, drain and squeeze out as much water as you can from the mushrooms. 
  • Pour the mushroom water through a double layer cloth towel to remove any sand.
  • Reserve 1 cup of liquid for this recipe.
  • Wash the fresh mushrooms and pat dry. 
  • Slice chanterelles and cultivated mushrooms. 
  • Trim and discard the stems of shiitake mushrooms.
  • Trim and discard root tips of oyster mushrooms. 
  • Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat and add the mushrooms, garlic, shallots and salt.
  • Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes.
  • Add the fresh mushrooms and continue to cook another 10 minutes.
  • Add the reserved mushroom water and sherry.
  • Increase the heat to high and cook until the liquid reduces by about 2/3.
  • Add the cream and cook until the liquid reduces to a saucelike consistency and is thick enough to coat a spoon.
