The BEST. A little much? I don’t think so because once you try this mushroom gravy you will think it’s “the best” too! It’s so rich in flavor, it makes your dish immediately elevated to restaurant quality! It looks pretty hard and complicated too doesn’t it?? … NOT! Using your secret ingredient, packaged au jus mix, no one will know you didn’t spend hours slaving away, roasting bones and making your own demi glace!

Roasted garlic is used in this recipe, making that ahead is probably the most “difficult” part. I suggest roasting a bunch of garlic ahead and keeping it in the fridge so you can just pop out the number of cloves you need and be on your way! Alternatively, minced garlic sauteed with the mushrooms will work too!!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup prepared packaged au jus mix
  • 1 Cup white button mushrooms sliced thin

How amazing would this be at a dinner party… so fancy!

    Hi! Your mushroom gravy sounds divine…yum! Could you please tell me what Italian herb paste is and what company makes it. I’m part Italian but I’ve never heard of it. Thanks so much, and I can’t wait to try it. I’m always on the lookout for great gravy recipes as they can really make the meal.

      Sure! It is just in those little squeeze bottles in the produce refrigerated section. The one I have been using recently is Gourmet Garden. They have many different pastes. If you don’t have that available, I would just substitute some fresh chopped basil and oregano, yum!

      You can find them in any grocery store in the refrigerated section by the herbs.

      It’s a dry gravy packet you can get by the other seasoning packets in the grocery store.
