This was a very good recipe. The only thing I recommend is to first cook the mushrooms and onions in the butter for a while. Then add the rest of the ingredients. We found we liked it this way a lot more.



I cannot see at all why this recipe is rated so highly. It turned out to be a flavorless flour-based gravy instead of a mushroom sauce. It was way too thick--I ended up using 50% more stock than what it called for. I also carmelized some shallots instead of green onions, and I cooked both the shallots and the mushrooms in butter before, as the previous folks have said. To give it more flavor, I added a 1/2 cup of red wine, 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, and a couple of tablespoons of Dijon mustard. Oh, and salt and pepper. (It didn't even call for salt and pepper!) I also used some shitake mushrooms instead of all whitecaps; thank goodness I did--I can't imagine how it would have tasted without them. Next time I'll cook the four and a bit of the butter together to make a roux, so there won't be so many lumps in the sauce, too. I really think it was inedible, the way the directions have it here (and I'll eat just about anything), but with my modifications it ended up being tasty--like a stroganoff. Without the modifications it would have been a tasteless, white, lumpy paste.

I'm nuts too...

Excellent topper for grilled pork chops!! I too sauteed the onions in the butter first, then added the shrooms for a minute or so, then added the other ingredients. MMMM-MMM GOOD. Thanks Sara!
