Default OYSTER & MUSHROOM STEW

OYSTER & MUSHROOM STEW
Ingredients

5 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 pint oysters with their liquor, jarred or freshly shucked, about 2 dozen*
1/2 pound mushrooms, wiped clean, stems trimmed or removed, and roughly
chopped
1/4 cup flour
2 celery stalks, minced
1 medium yellow or white onion, minced
1 3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cream (can use all milk if you want)
Splash of Tabasco, Crystal, or other hot sauce
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup parsley, minced

the oyster juice through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl to remove any grit.
Reserve the juices. Rinse the oysters well, under cold water. Put them in a
bowl.

Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the flour and stir to make a
roux. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the mixture for a few minutes,
stirring often.

When the roux turns the color of coffee-with-cream, stir in the celery and
onions. Increase the heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring
frequently.

Add the mushrooms and cook for another 4-5 minutes

Add the oyster juice and any juices the oysters in the bowl have released.
The flour in the roux will absorb the liquid and turn into a paste. Slowly
add the milk and cream, stirring to incorporate as you pour them in. Add a
healthy splash or two of hot sauce, to taste.

Heat the soup to steamy, but below a simmer, over low heat, cook for 15
minutes. (Do not let the soup boil!)

If you are working with large oysters, you may want to chop them into
bite-sized pieces. Add the oysters and cook for another 2 minutes, or until
the edges of the oysters just begin to curl.

Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh
chopped parsley to serve.

Wasn't crazy about it.......... but then again, I'm not crazy about Cream of Mushroom anyway ; Haven't had either (Oyster or Mushroom) in years, so when I saw this, figgered it's been long enough...

But that's just me........ I posted because someone else might like it


One deviation I made; My celery didn't look too good, to long in the fridge, so I subbed a couple of Broccoli florets....
and I didn't have any Parsley for garnish..........
