Jamie Oliver Mushroom Sauce Ingredients & Variations

  • Broth. You may use vegetable broth or beef broth if you want, but chicken broth has the appropriate mild taste for this dish.
  • Cream. To make this dish, you can use either whole milk, half-and-half, heavy cream, or light cream. However, remember that using a less heavy cream will result in a sauce that is less thick and creamy.
  • Mushrooms. Use a variety of mushrooms, such as portobello, shiitake, or oyster, in your cooking.

  • Are you on the ketogenic diet? Add this mushroom sauce on pork chops or chicken breasts cooked in salt and pepper for a delicious and keto-friendly meal.
  • Top mashed potatoes with it for a tasty side dish! Mushroom sauce is a natural complement to any preparation of potatoes, whether they are roasted, baked, or mashed.

How To Make Jamie Oliver Mushroom Sauce?

  • Saute onion in butter for 3-5 minutes, or until tender.
  • Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook until mushroom juices are released. Add garlic and thyme and simmer for 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken broth to deglaze the pan and release any browned pieces, then boil for a few minutes.
  • Add the remaining stock and cream and boil for 5 minutes, or until reduced by half.
  • To thicken the sauce more, add 2 tablespoons of water (or broth) with cornstarch and whisk thoroughly. Add the cornstarch mixture to the broth little by little until the desired consistency is reached. You might not require the entire cornstarch mixture.
  • Let simmer for 1 minute.
  • To taste, season with parsley, salt, and pepper.

Recipe Tips

  • In order to get a sauce that is both smooth and creamy, it is essential that each component be fully mixed before moving on to the next. In doing so, you’ll avoid having clumps form in your sauce.
  • Simmering the mushroom sauce for a longer period of time will result in a thicker sauce.

FAQ Section

How To Store Mushroom Sauce?

The creamy mushroom sauce can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days. Simply spoon it into an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. Allow the sauce to cool to room temperature before serving. To freeze, pour the sauce into a freezer bag or an airtight freezer-safe container.

What Caused My Mushroom Sauce To Separate?

To prevent the mushroom sauce from separating into water and fat, cornflour is used. When the sauce’s water content drops too low, the fat separates since it has nothing to emulsify with. An unsalvageable sauce can be saved by whisking in a few tablespoons of water to bring back the proper water-to-fat ratio.

Why Is My Mushroom Sauce Not Smooth?

Maybe you didn’t mix the milk and cornstarch together thoroughly enough before adding them to the sauce. Add some additional stock or water and beat with a wire whisk until smooth.

Why Is The Color Of My Mushroom Sauce So Light?

If the mushrooms aren’t browned, the sauce will be pale. If you desire a golden sauce, brown the mushrooms before adding liquid. Fry mushrooms in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Some mushrooms are darker. It might be the type of mushroom you used; button mushrooms are paler than portabellini/chestnut mushrooms.
