Mushroom Sauce

A mix of rich mushroom extract and sweet maple syrup makes for a wonderful mushroom sauce that's great with steak or even on burgers.
  • 1/2 c. dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 1/2 c. water
  • 1/3 c. minced onions
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 2 T. water

Place the mushrooms in 2 1/2 cups water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the mushrooms with a slotted spoon and rinse. Chop them finely and reserve them for the sauce. Strain the mushroom extract.

Combine the onions, 1/2 cup water, salt, syrup, pepper and parsley in a saucepan. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the mushroom extract and chopped mushrooms and bring to a boil. Mix the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan and cook and stir until thickened. Taste for seasoning.
