Substitute for Golden Mushroom Soup

A friend sent me this recipe a few years ago. It’s not exactly frugal, unless you live in a small town where nobody carries golden mushroom soup on a regular basis and you have a sudden craving for a recipe that calls for it.

Hunter’s Sauce with Mushrooms #84564
recipe by PanNan

This sauce is also known as sauce chasseur. It’s a nice brown sauce with
mushrooms. I sometimes substitute this sauce when the recipe calls for
golden mushroom soup.

2 cups

25 minutes 10 mins prep

2 tablespoons minced onions
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup tomato puree
1 cup left over home made beef gravy (or brown gravy/brown sauce made from a
packet such as Knorr’s)
2-5 drops maggi seasoning (or other flavor enhancer like Kitchen Bouquet, or
even Worcestershire sauce)
salt and pepper

Saute onions in butter until very tender.
Add mushrooms and saute additional 2- 3 minutes.
Add wine, simmer, and reduce by half.
Add tomato puree and gravy and simmer for 5 minutes.
Adjust seasoning to your taste with Maggi (or the other flavor enhancer you used), salt and pepper.
You can also add your favorite herbs to this sauce.
