Recipe by Chef John
"Mushroom sauce can be done with any type of stock, but I used beef stock here since I'm going to be serving with meatloaf."

I love mushrooms and I loved this gravy. Warning though....I used salted butter - salted the mushrooms, as instructed and did not use low sodium beef broth. By the time the gravy had reduced it was a little salty for us. My fault entirely but just a heads up to others who will be making this. Delicious - Thanks Chef John.
This was my first Chef John recipe and I must say that it was average at best. Extremely salty, bland, and required a lot of tweaking.
Not a bad start, but much better if you add some drippings from the meat you serve this with - in my case it was Chef John's Classic Meatloaf. I also added a glug of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon) and some minced shallots. I did use the optional fresh thyme and it was a nice addition. I'd recommend NO salt - there is quite enough in the beef stock.
Excellent! I think this gravy could be made even better with the addition of some wine...
This was the first time that I made gravy (without my mom looking over my shoulder guiding me). Thank you Chef John for your expertise. I followed this recipe closely and my gravy is delicious! Although my parents passed away and did not leave behind any recipes, I feel encouraged to get in the kitchen and make some great food. I don't want to eat fast food anymore. Thanks allrecipes.com!!!!!!
Vegetarians listen up! I made this with vegetable broth. No matter, it was super. My vegetarian wife and I (the meat eater) loved it on mashed potatoes!
I made this tonight with a meatloaf and mashed potatoes, simply delicious. This will be my go-to mushroom gravy from now on.
Delicious and relatively easy. Yielded more than we needed for meal and leftovers, so we froze the remainder for another time. Yum! Perfect with meatloaf.
