Homemade Mushroom Gravy is simple to prepare and is the perfect thing to pour over roasts, steaks, and potatoes. It takes less and 30 minutes!


  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pt. sliced white mushrooms
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 45 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper


  1. Add the butter to a large saucepan over medium heat and let it melt.
  2. Once melted, add the onion and saute for about 5 minutes, or until translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms and cook for an additional 5 minutes, until they begin to soften.
  4. Stir in the flour and let it cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Drizzle in the beef broth while stirring constantly.
