We put this stuff on everything. Literally almost everything except for vanilla ice cream. Mashed potatoes (duh), meats, veggies, dipping with bread, you name it, we’ll put it on our savory foods anytime of day. In fact, one of our kitchen team members ate this gravy for breakfast two days in a row just to finish all the recipe testing leftovers! Now that’s total obsession and dedication.

  • 6 Tablespoons (84 g) butter (3/4 stick) , divided
  • 16 ounces (454 g) mushrooms , sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup (45 g) flour
  • 3 cups (940 ml) broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • In saucepan, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.  Add mushrooms and cook until golden and excess mushroom liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes.
  • Add garlic and remaining butter (4 tablespoons). Cook for about 1 minute or until butter melts. Increase heat to high. 
  • Whisk in the flour, continually stirring to remove lumps. Add about 1/2 cup of beef stock, whisking until incorporated.
