"Where's that Steak"??

“Bring on that Steak”!!!

Mushrooms are one of my VERY favorites but I always wondered how they cooked them so well in restaurants,  especially with steaks or as a side dish!! The answer is “PATIENCE”!!! Mushrooms are primarily water! Don’t cover them, spread them out in the pan, let the water evaporate then watch them brown.  Be PATIENT….hahahaha…it will be worth it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb Mushrooms, any kind, cleaned and sliced
  • Butter or EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), or BOTH
  • Kosher Salt
  • Maderia, Red Zinfandel or Port wine (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Set a heavy-bottomed large skillet oven medium heat.

Add the oil/butter and wait for it to heat up. Add the sliced  mushrooms, then salt. (add wine here if preferred)

Let them cook over a medium/high heat, stirring occasionally, so not to burn but until  juices evaporate.  About 5-7 mins.

Turn down the heat to medium, and cook stirring occasionally until mushrooms are nicely browned. Taste and add more salt if necessary. 10 mins or so.
