Balsamic, Red Wine & Garlic infused Mushrooms with Thyme





When I made my yummy Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts a couple of weeks ago, I dug out this mushroom recipe too. These juicy mushrooms are infused with balsamic, thyme, red wine and garlic flavors to make for en elegant and flavorful dish. It’s really a side dish, but sometimes I like to make a couple of sides for dinner instead of committing to an entree. If you’ll be doing that, you might want to prepare double the quantity.

Also, I used a mix of both button mushrooms and baby bella mushrooms and the slight variation in mushroom color and flavor really added to the dish. Turned out really pretty!

Clean mushrooms and de-stem them. (Either pop the stems out, or slice them off)
Melt butter and olive oil. Add smashed garlic until fragrant, but not brown.
Add red wine and balsamic vinegar. Bring to a simmer.
Layer the mushrooms in a single layer, stem side down, in a nonstick pan. Cover and continue to simmer for 15 minutes.
Resist stirring or moving these mushrooms around.
Uncover the pan and add salt, pepper and thyme. Continue to resist stirring. Allow to continue to simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated. Now you can stir the pan if you'd like.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with a little lemon juice. When serving, scoop the "gravy" from the pan and drizzle on top.
