¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 smoked ham hock (optional)
2 Tbsp. cornstarch (preferably GMO-free) + 2 Tbsp. water (combine to make a slurry)

Directions

2. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until edges begin to brown.
3. Push mushrooms to sides of pan, lower heat to medium. Add carrots, onion, and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
4. Deglaze pan with brandy (if desired); cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until pan is almost dry. Add contents of pan to 5-quart slow cooker.
