  1. Step one

    Firstly, you must re-hydrate your dried morel mushrooms. Place at least 5 ounces of dried morel mushrooms into a bowl containing your meat stock. Let them sit for half an hour before straining them out and keeping both separate. You will also want to cut down your morels into circular, bite-sized pieces.
  2. Step two

    Next, it is time to start preparing the gravy mixture. Begin to mix your ¼ cup of water with your ¼ cup of cornstarch. Your roast meat should be ready now to remove it from the oven and let it sit to cool down.
  3. Step three

    Now, the magic happens. As you have already removed your meat, begin to deglaze the pan over the burner with your ¼ cup of brandy. Once you have successfully released the caramelised bits you can add your morel mushrooms, your stock and your cornstarch.
  4. Step four

    Your gravy should continue to thicken and begin to smell delicious. Quickly whisk in your 6 teaspoons of unsalted butter as a final ingredient. Add salt and pepper to taste and voila! Simply drizzle your delicious dried morel mushroom gravy over your roast meat and enjoy the unforgettable flavours!
