- 1 ounce hen-of-the-woods mushrooms
- 3 tablespoons butter or fat from drippings
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
- 2 cups stock
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon yeast
Pour the heated stock over coarsely chopped hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and let sit for one hour.
In a saucepan, melt the butter or fat and add flour, whisking to combine thoroughly. Cook 2 or 3 minutes. Drain the mushrooms and very gradually, while whisking, add the soaking liquid to the flour and fat mixture. Combine thoroughly, then add the mushrooms, cooking over medium heat until thickened. Add the remaining ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste. This is excellent served over mashed potatoes, or your favorite meat dish.
