 Sautéed Morels with Cream

Courtesy of Linda C.
This is a classic French preparation my husband learned years ago from working in a European cuisine restaurant. He is an Executive Chef trained in many styles of cooking. The ingredients are easy to find except for veal stock which must be made by roasting veal bones for hours, perhaps a good chicken stock could be used instead. Enjoy!

Our recipe for grilled steaks

  • 2 steaks of choice - we prefer New York Strips
    4 TBS A-l or any bottled steak sauce
    4 TBS Worcestershire
    4 TBS Soy
    1 large garlic clove crushed or diced
    A few shakes of McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning (in the spice department) a few dashes of Tabasco if desired
  • Mix all ingredients in ziplock bag, add steaks and marinate in refrigerator for at least an hour.
  • Cook over hot grill to desired doneness. Remove and cover with foil for a few minutes, this insures a juicy steak! Plate up and serve with morel mushroom and cream sauce. Heaven!
