For Fathers Day I grilled some steaks and made a delicious creamy chanterelle sauce (gravy) that’s worth sharing. I had picked about 6 ounces (a quart) that morning and it was the perfect amount to prepare enough sauce/gravy for three steaks.
Chanterelle Steak Sauce/Gravy
- 6 oz chanterelle mushrooms
- 1 tbs butter
- 2 tbs finely minced shallots
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup white wine
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ tsp dried thyme
- ½ tsp cracked black peppercorns
- 1 tsp chicken bouillon granules
- Fresh parsley for garnish
- Carefully clean the mushrooms (small ones are best). Dry-fry (dry saute) them in a pan until most of the moisture from mushrooms is cooked out. Set aside.
- Melt the butter in the pan. Saute the shallots and garlic until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and the mushrooms and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the cover and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add more heavy cream for a thicker sauce, add more wine for a thinner sauce.
- Spoon the sauce over grilled steaks, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve immediately.
