Gorgeous mushroom caps, pan-seared in a garlicky, white wine and butter sauce, is a high-end steakhouse staple. Why not bring that high-end steakhouse meal home by making these easy, garlic butter mushrooms for your next steak. The mushrooms soak up the flavorful sauce giving them a rich flavor – and they’re ready in no time.
WHAT IS NEEDED FOR THIS RECIPE?
- Olive oil and butter – why both? The butter adds richness and the olive oil helps to raise the smoke point of the butter.
- White button mushrooms – whole mushrooms. You could also use baby portabellas. Try to find mushrooms that are similar in size so they cook evenly.
- Worcestershire sauce – brings a beefy flavor to the mushrooms
- Dry white wine – this is optional but adds a TON of flavor
- Black pepper – preferably freshly ground
- Garlic – lots of it
- Fresh parsley – for garnish
HOW TO CLEAN MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms often have quite a bit of dirt on them when packaged. You want to make sure that you get all of it off before adding the mushrooms to your pan.
- Brush off as much dirt as possible with a paper towel or a very soft-bristled brush. Be sure to get the stem and around the gills.
- Mushrooms are like little sponges, so if you plan on eating them raw, don’t wash them. But for this recipe we’ll be pan-sauteing them, so run them under cold water to remove the last of the debris.
- If you feel the need, you can peel the mushrooms after rinsing them. Use a sharp paring knife to pry away the first layer of skin.
- Add minced onion
- Fresh thyme and rosemary are delicious with the mushrooms
- You could use a dry red wine instead of the white wine
- Don’t want the alcohol? Add beef broth instead.
