2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons bacon fat
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/8 cup sliced green onion
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cans chicken broth
2 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon MSG
1 teaspoon meinsee (bean sauce)
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce

Saute mushrooms in heated bacon fat. Set aside.

Heat the oil. Add the ginger, garlic, and green onion, then the mushrooms. Saute until soft; deglaze the pan with the soy sauce.

Mix cornstarch with 3/4 cup of the chicken broth. Gradually add the remaining chicken broth and remaining ingredients, adding the cornstarch slurry last. Simmer until thickened.

This was an incredible recipe! I did not have MSG or hoisin sauce but it came out fine. It is versatile enough that I would use whenever I wanted a dark brown gravy with lots of flavor. I made this specifically for egg fu yung, and it was perfect. The recipe did not state what kind of mushrooms to use to I used plain button mushrooms to see how that would taste. Next time I will add other types such as porcini or shitake. Overall a great simple recipe. Thank you for posting!
