Tasty and flavoursome despite leaving out the creme fraiche in order to keep it dairy free. I'm not sure that it would be enough for 4. It was easily polished off by 2 of us...

Fab sauce. Decided to cook Mushroom Sauce at last minute, so didn't have any Sherry but used Brandy instead. Made a normal meal into a Restuarant classic. Fab with fillet steaks.

Love this sauce and have made it many times. Dijon mustard works just as well, if not better. My main tip is to hold back on the added vinegar. I find there is more than enough in the mustard to give the dish the necessary sharpness

Reporting back, took me a year! Can I just say poor ol' Gordon would roll over in his gravy f'ing and blinding at the sight of 80% of these comments! The man is an artist... and everyone has their own take without even trying his way first! You can't use single, double or uht cream. It doesn't work. I concede mascarpone is an alternative, but still... I think you can use white wine, but that's after trying the original recipe first. And it won't be as good anyway. Basically, this is the best steak sauce I've ever come across, beats any steak house! But for Pete's sake, stick to the recipe, it's perfect as it is! And it's not like the ingredients are scarce!

Delicious sauce! I didn't add any sherry as I didn't have any, but none-the-less this is now one of my favorite sauces to go with my steaks!

Did this today. Doubled recipe, added sliced onions at beginning stage and used single cream. Absolutely scrumptious! Going to use leftovers on pork loin chops tomorrow night. Will defo do this one again:-))

WOULD THIS BE OK TO USE DRY WHITE WINE INSTEAD OF THE SHERRY

Comes to £15.78 with Waitrose quality ingredients. Will be trying this tonight and compare to my usuall mushroom sauce. I'm sure it'll be worth every penny, like every recipe I have attempted from Gordon
