Recipe: Mushroom Sherry Cream Sauce

I have made this mushroom sherry cream sauce three times now.  The first time was for my birthday, to serve on a nice tri-tip steak.

The second time was for Valentine's Day, also to serve with the tri-tip.  It's a new favorite.

After the second time, The Boy declared that he now LOVES mushrooms, thank-you-very-much.  This is a complete turnaround, and a triumph.  I decided that I needed to make it again, and actually measure amounts, so that I could blog it properly.

This third time, I made it to serve with a breaded pork cutlet and rice.  Lovely.  Simply lovely.

The Hubby and I have also had leftovers in omelets, and that was a fantastic idea.

The recipe uses one of my favorite products, Trader Joe's Mushroom Medley.  I have also made it with sliced portabello mushrooms, and it was just as good.  You just have to saute the mushrooms until they are soft if you are using raw mushrooms.

Try this sauce!  I could happily eat it every day.  It would be lovely with chicken, or on top of your favorite burger.

This is a definite keeper!

Mushroom Sherry Cream Sauce

1 12-oz (weight) package sliced mushrooms (I used Trader Joe's Mushroom Medley, but sliced portabellos work, too)
2 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp cooking sherry
1/4 c cream
salt and pepper, to taste
I got impatient and added the mushrooms before the butter had melted...
Melt butter in a medium sized saute pan (3 qt) on medium high.  Add the mushrooms and cook until softened and butter is absorbed (add some garlic powder or a little fresh garlic if you are not using the Trader Joe's mushroom medley).

Deglaze the pan with 2 Tbsp cooking sherry, stirring well.  Cook until the liquid has cooked off, then add the remaining 2 Tbsp cooking sherry and repeat.  Stir in the cream and cook on medium heat until thickened.  Serve with your favorite meat, or simply eat as is and enjoy.
