What Austrian Schwammerl Goulash is
This recipe is a very simple base for mushroom sauces that can contain a variety of different mushrooms (the word "mushroom" in German doesn′t really exist - you are normally specific what kind of mushroom you want).
There′s the standard mushroom that you get all year round in the supermarkets, exotic imports and seasonal mushrooms that many people pick themselves in the forest in late summer or autumn. The flavour of the dish will vary with each kind of mushroom you choose. With mushrooms being very common in Austrian forests, the meal is wide-spread in all of the country.
How to prepare Austrian Schwammerl Goulash
Chop the onions and fry them until lightly golden. Add the mushrooms, perhaps chopped into pieces (if very large) and add some water. Add the spices and wine or cider. Finally, add the chopped parsley, the cream and bind with corn starch or flour if necessary. Serve the mushroom sauce with Semmelknödel and a bit of cranberry sauce.
