Directions

1.  Optional: For a creamy gravy, add a few tablespoons of heavy cream at the end

2.  Add the mushrooms and cook 7-8 minutes or until golden and the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Add the ground porcini mushrooms and cook for another minute.

3.  Add the butter and melt. Add the flour, stir to combine and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring continually. This will cook off the flour flavor and brown the flour to create more depth of flavor in the gravy.

4. Add the beef broth, vinegar, thyme, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk continually until the gravy is thickened. Cover and simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer the gravy thinner add a little more water (or heavy cream if using).


Note: To make this gluten free simply omit the step of adding the flour and then, at the very end after you've added the broth and seasonings, stir in a cornstarch slurry made with one tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water and simmer for a minute until thickened.  

Ingredients
2 tablespoons butter, bacon grease, lard or beef drippings1 yellow onion ,finely chopped1 clove garlic ,minced16 ounces fresh mushrooms of choice (I used button mushrooms in the photos) ,cleaned and sliced1 tablespoon ground dried porcini mushrooms (if using dried porcini pieces grind them in a coffee/spice grinder or pound with a mallet in a ziplock bag)4 tablespoons unsalted butter4 tablespoons all-purpose flour2 cups strong beef broth1 teaspoon dark balsamic vinegar1/2 teaspoon sea salt plus more to taste1/2 teaspoon sugar1/4 teaspoon dried thyme1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepperOptional: For a creamy gravy, add a few tablespoons of heavy cream at the end
