This creamy mushroom sauce can be served with chicken and poultry dishes as well as veal. It's made by adding sautéed mushrooms to a basic Suprême Sauce or Allemande Sauce.​

Note: There is another version of the mushroom sauce in classical cuisine, but it is a demi-glace-based sauce that can be served with meat and pork dishes. See the recipe for Mushroom Sauce I.


Steps to Make It

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat until it's frothy. Stir in the lemon juice, then add the mushrooms and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.​

Stir in the Allemande or Suprême Sauce. Bring to a simmer, cook for another 5 minutes and serve right away.
