This is my own recipe for pidpenky, which I created as a mish-mash from several pidpenky recipes I found online - I don't have the exact one that my Gidu used to make, unfortunately, but it's probably very similar! I really love this recipe - it's tasty and simple to make.

approx. 1/2 lb fresh mushrooms
1 large onion, finely chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup beef consommé
(I use Campbell's Broth Consommé)
      extra couple packets of dried beef broth, or more canned broth
1/4 cup red wine
3 tbsp flour, 2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp lemon juice

1. Clean mushrooms well, trim and chop.
2. Put mushrooms, onions, garlic and wine in consommé in large pot. Bring to a boil, simmer for about an hour. You may need more liquid, if so, just add some more liquid broth, or water and powdered broth.
3. Add lemon juice, stir.
4. Melt butter in microwave - stir flour in till smooth, then stir slowly into mushrooms and bring to a boil, stirring.
5. And that's it! If keeping warm, keep on low heat and be sure to stir regularly so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Add a touch more liquid if necessary.

Notes: I used white button mushrooms in this recipe, but it's also really good if you add a few of some different types as well, like crimini and shiitake. It really deepens the flavor. Give it a try!
