Brown Mushroom Gravy

➡️ It seems that in 2023 most people prefer a mushroom sauce with sour cream, although there are excellent recipes for brown mushroom gravy, very simple and easy to cook. I share a recipe for a brown mushroom gravy without cream on this page and I warmly recommend it because it fits very well with a lot of other dishes that make them worthy of a gourmet!

➡️ But why should you cook mushroom gravy at home? Not only does homemade mushroom gravy add a delicious flavor to your meals, but it’s also much healthier than using a store-bought gravy or sauce. When you make your own gravy, you can control how much salt and fat goes into it, making it a healthier choice for you and your family.

6 PRO Tips for the Brown Mushroom Gravy Recipe Without Sour Cream

  • I recommend using chopped canned mushrooms for this gravy recipe due to the shorter cooking time, but you can use also whole canned mushrooms and even fresh mushrooms that you have to fry previously
  • fry the red onions over a medium temperature to avoid burning and add the mushrooms to the pan immediately as the onion is glassy
  • I prefer using chicken stock for the added chicken flavor, however, you can use vegetable stock for a vegan version of the recipe or even water
  • because I use this brown gravy to top other dishes, I prefer to season it basically, still, you can add more flavors as desired when you season it
  • the amount of cornstarch or flour depends on the liquid level from the pan and your preferences, this ingredient can be skipped as well if you like eating a very low sauce
  • the use of chopped parsley is not mandatory, I like to add chopped greenery for the added aroma and freshness
