Onion and Mushroom Gravy

Longing for some of that comfort food your mom made for you when you were growing up? If you answered yes to this question, you are not along. Okay, let's through nutrition to the wind for just a moment, although there are remarkable amounts of trace nutrients in this simple dish. We all sometimes have a hankering for comfort food that just plain ole' soothes the sole.

This Mushroom and Onion Gravy recipe just happens to be one of those. The first complete meal my sweetie ate being "glutened" from Snyder's of Hanovers Restaurant Style Corn Tortilla Chips was the one you see in the picture above. 

I made a basic hamburger steak with steamed broccoli on the side, per his request, and topped the hamburger steak off with this fab gravy that I promise you cannot tell from the gravy your mom made for you when you were a wee bitty thing.

This dinner hit the spot for him. Rick cleaned his plate which was reward enough for me.

Here is my recipe:
1/2 medium white sweet onion, sliced thin
1 cup button mushrooms sliced thin
1 Pinch salt  to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
3/4 cup beef stock
1 tablespoon Jackie's Quick Bread Flour Blend (or flour choice)

Here is how  I put this recipe together:
1. Place onions and mushrooms in the same skillet used to cook meat of choice with meat removed and tented, Add salt and cook until onions and mushrooms are soft, or about 5 to 7 minutes. Add wine, scraping the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan. Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, or about  3 to 5 minutes.

2. While onions and mushrooms cook, combine flour and 1/4 cup beef stock. Add beef stock and flour mixture to reduced wine mixture. Stir to thoroughly combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, wstirrrig frequently until sauce begins to thicken, about10 to 12 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in butter until smooth.

3. To serve, pour 2 to 4 tablespoons over meat of choice.
