Mushroom sauce

A simple and delicious sauce for any dark meat, probably not bad with white meat either. Mushrooms are low calorie too!

16 oz of white button mushrooms
2 tbsp butter
2 cups low sodium beef stock
2 tbsp flour
black pepper

Brown the sliced mushrooms in the butter. Add the flour and brown slightly. Add 1 cup of cold broth. Stir in quickly.

Add another cup of broth and bring to a simmer. Cook until thickened to desired consistency, about 30 minutes.

Season with pepper and thyme. Serve warm. For a vegetarian version, use vegetable stock and red wine for the liquid.
