  1. Came across this recipe when looking for a little tangy flavour in my mushroom sauce. And boy did this fit the bill. I did let mine thicken slightly more due to personal preference but other than that…made it exactly as prescribed. Incredinle depth of flavour from a few simple ingredients

  2. 5 stars
    Served this with turkey, green beans and mashed potatoes. It was a big hit. Will definitely make it again.

  3. 5 stars
    This is absolutely delicious. My husband was diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes and has to limit carbs. It’s been a challenge to find low carb meals he likes. I served this with turkey breast cutlets and asparagus. We both enjoyed this and will make it again and again. Thank you!

  4. 5 stars
    Sounds delicious. Would like to make this for a group of 70 to go with smoked pork loin. Could I make this the day before? It looks like your recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups? I am thinking of thinning it down just a bit more. Do you think if I make it times 5 that will be enough? Or maybe times 4? We will be serving bbq sauce also.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Kim! I haven’t tried making this for a group that large. This can be made the night before and reheated. To reheat, simply return to the pan or microwave for a couple of minutes. If making for a large group I would make at least 5 times. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!

  5. I was disappointed with how this turned out. I made this sauce to have with egg noodles but it wasn’t thick enough to coat them. I followed the recipe exactly, next time I will make a roux to thicken the sauce.

    1. You would need to cook it longer if it didn’t thicken. It is important to use a skillet or frying pan as well. A roux, or a cornstarch slurry, would work to thicken it too Karen.
