Garlic and Mushroom Sauce for Fondue

Cooking method: Binding

Aside from a delectable fondue side dish, this sauce can be used for any type of broiled or sauteed meat.


3 tbsp. butter
6 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp. onions, minced
1 lb. mushrooms, diced
1 1/4 cups beef bouillon
1/3 cups Madeira wine
2 1/2 tbsp. flour


1. Melt the butter in a heavy skillet and allow to bubble slightly. Add the crushed garlic, onions, and diced mushrooms. When mushrooms are limp, add 1 cup bouillon and increase heat so that mixture becomes somewhat reduced in volume. Add the wine and season with salt. Reduce heat and simmer.

2. Mix the flour with the 1/4 cup bouillon. Add this gradually to the mixture in the skillet until it thickens. Be sure to stir so that the sauce is smooth.
