Basic Mushroom Gravy Recipe Video

My mother just reminded me that I promised a mushroom gravy recipe clip when I did the meatloaf demo. So, here you go; better late than never. This mushroom sauce can be done with any type of stock, but I used beef stock here since I’m going to be making some more meatloaf (if you haven’t seen that clip, check it out here). This is usually a 2 pan recipe; chefs normally brown the mushroom in a large sauté pan and then add them to a sauce pan to finish the sauce, but why wash another pan when you don’t have too? So, I’m showing you my patented single-pan method. It does take longer, but the final results will be the same. Be patient, wait until all the liquid is gone and the mushrooms are browning in the butter before you make the roux. Enjoy!

Editors Review

What is meatloaf, roast beef or mashed potatoes without a delicious gravy? Most mushroom gravy recipes require two pans but Chef John gives us his patented single-pan method. It does take longer, but the final results are fantastic. He also gives us tips on which kind of mushrooms to use for the gravy.
