Creamy Morel Sauce

2 posts in this topic

Found a few pounds turkey hunting with the D-man, and had some to burn. Admittedly, morels aren't required for this recipe, but using quite a bit extra really made for a great topping on venison steak. Seriously good with fresh bread to soak up all that's left!

Creamy Mushroom (Morel) Sauce

Put on top of steaks, chicken, fish, etc.

• 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

• 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

• ¼ cup finely chopped shallots – S & P to taste

• 4 cloves fresh garlic, minced

• ¼ cup sherry

• 15-20 morels or other mushrooms (large ones sliced)

• 2 cups chicken broth

• ½ cup heavy cream

• 2 Tbsp cornstarch

• 3 Tbsp. cold water, to mix with cornstarch

In medium sized saucepan, heat oil and butter on high heat. Add shallots, season with S & P, then carmelize. Add garlic and cook briefly, until aromatic. Add sherry and cook until liquid is almost evaporated. Add mushrooms and chicken broth, cook 5-6 minutes, backing down heat a bit to prevent overboil. Add cream, cook for additional 4-5 minutes until slightly thickened. Add cornstarch slurry for final thickening. Stir briskly enough to keep cornstarch from binding to morels, not too much so as to prevent breaking up mushrooms too much.

This is a good recipe. Made one almost identical last night with porterhouse's. Of course it's the morels that make it!

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
