Savory Sauce Recipe

Turn up the flavor with this savory sauce recipe

1-2 tablespoons of oil

1-2 tablespoons finely chopped onion or shallot

1/4 cup sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup brandy

A splash of heavy cream

In a medium saucepan, sauté onion or shallot in oil until soft, about 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until brown, about another 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in brandy and deglaze: scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula and stir as the liquid comes to a boil. Let the mixture boil for only a few seconds. Turn down the heat and cook about five minutes until the mixture is slightly reduced. Add a splash (one tablespoon or less) of heavy cream and heat the sauce through.

Now put this savory sauce recipe on your “anything.” The magic just happened.
