For the broth, simmer broth, porcini, and cremini stems in a saucepan over medium heat until reduced to 3 cups, 810 minutes; strain and discard solids.

For the soup, cook bacon in a pot until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings.

Add butter to pot with drippings; heat over medium. Add onions, garlic, and paprika; sweat until onions soften, 5 minutes. Add quartered cremini; cook until moisture releases and it evaporates, 5 minutes.

Stir in sherry; simmer until nearly absorbed. Add broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer soup 3 minutes.

Whisk together cornstarch, soy sauce, and lemon juice; stir into simmering soup and cook until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and dill, then season soup with salt and pepper. Serve soup with sour cream.
