10 ways to use mushroom sauce

  1. Mushroom sauce for steak - Sear a beautiful piece of eye fillet, rib eye or scotch fillet steak in one pan while your sauce is simmering in another.  Heat up a few baby potatoes, some green beans and pour the mushroom sauce over the top for a pub-style 'steak and mushroom sauce' meal. 

  2. Creamy Mushroom pasta sauce - No changes to the base recipe are necessary, simply stir this sauce through your favourite pasta for a quick and easy dinner.  Reserve a cup of the pasta cooking water to help thin out the sauce if it's a little too thick.

  3. Baked potatoes - You might like to fry off some bacon bits before adding the cream to your sauce to take the mushroom sauce for baked potatoes up another notch. 

  4. Pie Maker pies - Shred some store bought BBQ chicken or leftover roast chicken into the cooked sauce and warm through.  Use the sauce as a pie maker filling.  Be sure the sauce is thick when using in pie makers, you can increase the ratio of chicken if you need. 

  5. Chicken thighs with mushroom sauce - Bake skin-on chicken thigh cutlets in the oven until cooked and the skin is crispy.  When the sauce is ready, serve chicken thighs on white rice, then top with your luscious mushroom sauce.  Add some green beans or broccoli on the side to balance our your plate.

  6. Slow cooked short ribs - Slow cook a batch of short ribs in the oven or slow cooker with just a little stock, garlic, tomato paste and herbs. When the ribs are ready, serve on top of mash with a good spoonful of mushroom sauce.

  7. Grilled white fish - Flash fry a piece of your favourite fish and serve with mushroom sauce and carrots. 

  8. Cob loaf - Use the mushroom sauce as a dip. Stir through softened cream cheese to thicken and pour inside a hollowed out cob loaf! 

  9. Skewers - Load up your skewers with vegetables such as capsicum, onion pieces, eggplant... any firm vegetebles.  Add tofu if you want to keep your skewers vegetarian (remember to use vegetable stock in the base recipe) or thread a mix of chicken or beef on to skewers then serve with mushroom sauce over the top.

  10. Chicken and rice bake - In a baking dish, add thawed frozen spinach, cooked white rice, cooked and sliced chicken breast pieces then top with mushroom sauce.  Cover and cook for around 20 minutes at around 160 degrees celsius.
