  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium shallot minced
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 sage leaves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 1/2 teaspoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons dry vermouth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon gravy master (browning sauce)
  • 2 cups low sodium stock (can use vegetable, chicken or beef)


  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.  Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and begin to brown, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the butter, garlic, shallots  & sage to the mushrooms and sauté until softened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms and stir until all the flour is absorbed in the butter and forms a paste.
  • Stir in the vermouth and simmer for one minute. Add the stock slowly, stirring constantly.  Heat the gravy to a boil and continue to stir for one minute until the gravy thickens..  Add the worcestershire sauce and the gravy master, stirring until well combined.  Remove from heat and pour into a gravy boat or bowl. Adjust seasoning to taste.  Serve.
