Port-Wine Mushroom Sauce

Photo: Randy Mayor
Yield 1 cup (serving size: 1/4 cup)
This deeply flavored brown mushroom sauce is reminiscent of the classic bordelaise sauce but made in a fraction of the time. It's virtually fat-free--another plus. This sauce garnered our highest rating in the Test Kitchens. Try it with beef, lamb, venison, or pork. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps (about 3 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
