Mushroom Sauce

Whenever we braai at my buddy Werner’s house, one thing you can be sure of is that someone is going to ask him to make his famous Mushroom Sauce.

A mushroom sauce recipe cheat

I’ve asked him for the recipe many times before, but he kept refusing… until now. The secret to this sauce is that it’s actually so easy to make, and the key ingredient (packet mushroom sauce) comes right off the shelf. Maybe that’s why he didn’t want to tell anyone… but either way, this sauce is a definite crowd-pleaser.

  • Tip: You’ll need to add the cream fairly soon after doing this, otherwise your ‘paste’ won’t dissolve, and you’ll end up with lumps of mushrooms in cream instead 🙂It takes a bit getting used to. If you’re struggling with this, then feel free to add the packets of sauce the the mix after you’ve added the cream.
  • Add cream and bring to a boil, reduce heat, stirring frequently until sauce thickens.
    Add Cream


Tip: If your sauce get too thick, add some full cream milk to the sauce and stir until you have a smooth sauce again.
