Creamy Mushroom Sauce Recipe

My creamy mushroom sauce recipe. A great sauce to add to your homemade pasta or to add to steak or even chicken schnitzel.

In the recipe below I used a combination of white and brown mushrooms. I find the best for this recipe are black mushrooms or a nice brown mushroom. However, most mushrooms are suitable.

Adding a cap full of cooking brandy adds a unique flavor to the sauce. 

For lovers of pepper sauce, add extra pepper to the sauce to your preference (mine is 3 to 4 tsp). It will be the best pepper sauce you ever tasted. With the pepper sauce variant adding the brandy is a must as it really helps to bring out the pepper flavor while the mushrooms add a unique twist to the pepper sauce.
