Recipe: Wine Sauteed White Mushrooms

One of John’s favorite meals is spaghetti, which is nice, because it’s an easy meal to make. Occasionally, something I like to make alongside spaghetti, to fancy it up, is sautéed mushrooms. Not just buttery sautéed mushrooms, but more of a “gourmet”-styled sautéed mushrooms. Don’t let the word “gourmet” scare you off. It’s REALLY easy to make.

For those who have never cooked with wine (not that I’m an expert… this is the ONLY thing I use cooking wine for), something you might appreciate knowing is that, as you simmer or boil the cooking wine, the alcohol eventually evaporates out of the wine. (At least, that’s what I’ve been told.)

I’m giving two separate, but similar, lists of ingredients, and cooking methods. The first is how I make them. The second is an alternative way, for a quicker preparation time, and a more buttery taste. I can only speak from experience on the first, although the latter might taste better.

When making this, I don’t normally use any precise measurement of ingredients, so it’s always a surprise how it will taste. :) I know some people prefer precise measurements, so the last time I made this, I measured out most of the ingredients. The garlic powder, table salt, and pepper are guesstimates though.

I used 2 tablespoons of butter, but 3 tablespoons are mentioned.

It’s likely I’m doing things “wrong” in how I make this, but they sure turned out delicious. I’m not crazy about mushrooms, but I LOVE these!!

Because of the amount of wine I used, it took a rather long time to complete. HOWEVER, this (Method No. 1) is how I made them, and they tasted phenomenal!!!

12 Large White Mushrooms
1 c. Red Cooking Wine
3 T. Butter

12-15 minutes

Prepare Mushrooms
Rinse any dirt off the mushrooms. (Some say NOT to rinse mushrooms. It’s up to you.)
Remove all mushroom stems. (You can discard stems, or use them in a salad.)

Into Skillet
Place all ingredients, EXCEPT the mushrooms, into a large skillet.
Heat the ingredients over a low-medium heat, until the butter melts.
Gently place all mushrooms into the skillet, rounded side up.

Bring the mixture to a rapid boil (uncovered), over a high heat.
Boil for approximately 10-12 minutes.

Reduce heat.
Carefully turn all mushrooms upside-down.
Bring mixture back to a rapid boil for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Pretty soon, we’ll have Morel mushrooms around here. I’ve never tasted them, but I think I’m gonna give it a try. :D
