A few hints and tips

You can also add meat to the mushroom stew. Beef or pork is ideal.

If you don’t want the mushrooms to soak up water and soften when you wash them, it’s better to clean them with a brush and wipe them with a napkin .

Outside the mushroom season, the sauce can be prepared mainly from frozen and well-stored mushrooms, dried or pickled mushrooms .

Mushroom sauces go well with almost any side dish – bread, pasta, rice, mashed potatoes and, of course, dumplings! Buns and potatoes are classics. But try to prepare, for example, Karlovy Vary. You can get inspired in the video:
