This mushroom gravy is creamy, savory, and full of mushroom flavor! It's a variation of my brown gravy and is made with sautéed mushrooms, onion powder, and stock. It's great with turkey, steak, chicken, and pork chops. Serve with sides during Thanksgiving and Christmas!

This mushroom gravy tastes rich and creamy with tons of umami flavor from the sautéed mushrooms and beef stock. The buttery roux adds richness and thickens the gravy to a perfect consistency.
It's great to make for the holidays and to have on the table for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Serve this mushroom gravy with turkey and holiday sides such as mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, biscuits, and more!
- Mushrooms - Use any variety of mushrooms you'd like. I used baby bella or crimini mushrooms but any combination of white button mushrooms, oysters, porcini, portobello, or chanterelle mushrooms will do.
- Stock or broth - I used beef broth for this recipe but chicken or vegetable stock or broth works too.
- Flour - Use all purpose flour.
- Butter - You can use salted or unsalted butter.
- Seasonings: Garlic powder, onion powder, bay leaf.
How to Make Mushroom Gravy
- Slice the mushrooms about 1 cm thick and sauté with vegetable oil. Set this aside.
- Melt the butter in a large pan and add the flour. Stir continuously for about 2 minutes until a thick paste forms, called a roux.
- Add a bit of stock at a time and stir vigorously with a whisk until it's smooth and lump free. Add the rest of the stock, sautéed mushrooms, onion powder, garlic powder, and bay leaf.
- Boil until thick and smooth, about 3 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Ways to Serve Mushroom Gravy
Serve this gravy with any of the following for a delicious meal!
- Steak, roast chicken, biscuits, pork chop, meatballs, meatloaf, poutine, loco moco, hamburger steak or salisbury steak.
- Mashed Potatoes
This will thicken as it sets and cools. You can reheat it on the stovetop or the microwave while stirring occasionally.
To prevent lumps, add a small amount of stock slowly and stir vigorously with a whisk. Once smooth and lump free, add the remaining stock while continuously stirring.
I recommend consuming within 3 days. Store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge.
To make mushroom gravy without stock, substitute with bouillon cubes, stock powder, or stock concentrate/paste. Use according to the directions.
