I seldom pay attention to recipes, but this one got my attention. If you like to cook like I do, this would definitely be a good one to experiment with. Check it out...the Maryland Crab and Mushroom Soup Recipe
Maryland Crab and Mushroom Soup Recipe
½ cup butter
½ cup onions, chopped
1 Tbsp. garlic, chopped
2 lbs mixed Mushrooms, sliced (I used Cremini, White Button and Shitakes)
1 Tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
2 Tbsp. Parsley Flakes, divided
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 Quart water
1 can Evaporated Milk
½ lb. Crab Meat ( can use 1 lb. if desired)
½ cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
1 oz. Sweet Sherry (I used Harvey’s Bristol Cream)
In a 4 quart stockpot, over medium-high heat, melt butter; add onions and garlic. Cook stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, Old Bay Seasoning, 1 Tbsp. parsley flakes, and Worcestershire Sauce. Cook 5 minutes. Add water and milk; simmer uncovered 15 minutes. You can add some fresh breadcrumbs broken into small pieces if desired to thicken the soup. Add the crab meat, red bell pepper and sherry. Adjust seasoning and serve. Top with remaining parsley flakes if using fresh parsley.
