Brown Sauce

  • 1 pint brown stock
  • 1 1/2 ounces flour
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 4 mushrooms
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Put the butter in a stewpan. Melt on the stove. Wash the mushrooms in cold water. Cut off the stalks and peel them. When the butter is melted, stir in the flour and mix to a smooth paste. Add the stock and mushrooms. Stir the sauce smoothly until it boils and thickens. Let it simmer gently for 8-10 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Season with pepper and salt. Skim off the butter as it rises to the top of the sauce. If the sauce is not brown enough, a teaspoon of caramel may be stirred into it. Strain and serve like a rascal with a smile on your face.
