This Easy Mushroom Sauce Recipe belongs to my shortcut (lazy) collection. It is so easy to assemble and no complicated ingredients to buy, but still possess that right seasoning/flavour and creaminess that I want my Mushroom Sauce to be.
I love this sauce drizzled over a plate of freshly cooked French Fries. This is one of my simple homemade combo guilty pleasure I love to eat while watching TV.

~ Heat your deep frying pan in high and drop in your butter, lower the heat into high-medium and once the butter is melted, stir in your sliced onion. Wait till your onion slices turns translucent and then add in your chicken cube/powder and let it melt with the butter. Add in your sliced mushrooms.
~ Sprinkle your coarse ground pepper and stir your sliced mushrooms while cooking. Most of the sliced mushrooms should have that dark golden brown bits edges before you add your thickened cream. Don’t overcook your mushrooms, it should still have that fleshly texture and not too limp. Pour in your thickened cream and let it boil and bring down to simmer. Cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
