Picking an alcohol for my mushroom mix

Posted by cookie8 (My Page) on

I am making stuffed beef for supper and the stuffing is a mushroom mix. I sauteed mushrooms and onions in bacon fat and seasoned with various spices. I want to add an alcohol to it to give it a kick. I am torn between brandy, vermouth and sherry. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I like to use cognac and flame it.

Brandy (or cognac) is what we use.

Depends on the spices. Sherry is my preferred but it has a nutty flavor. Vermouth is good in a pinch if you have no decent white wine leftover in the frig.

If the spice mix calls for it, I'd use brandy. But I prefer using brandy in my curry mixtures.

It totally depends on the spices! I would use sherry or brandy (or cognac) and keep the vermouth as a last resort.

Thanks. Brandy it is. Didn't even think of white wine.
