½ cup diced onion

¼ cup butter

Sautee mushrooms and onions in the butter until the moisture from the mushrooms has cooked out.  De-glaze with the sherry and cook off the alcohol (2-3 minutes).  Stir in the flour to make a paste.  Stir in the stock and spices and cook until thickened (about 5 minutes), stirring often.
