There are many varieties of cultivated & wild mushrooms. The gravy recipe pictured is Shiitake but any mushroom will work. This is ultimate comfort food and can be used over potatoes, rice, vegetables, or meat. Look for firm mushroom and wipe them clean with a paper towel. Mushrooms hate to be washed and easily become soggy with water. Beef broth is used in the most traditional gravies but it tastes just as good with vegetable or chicken broth.
