Red Wine Mushrooms and Onions

Do you like steak? I like steak.  Medium rare, thank you very much.    But here at Casa de B, we don't eat a ton of it.  We love it, but we tend to eat more pot roast than steak.  So when we DO have it, it's quite a treat.  Especially when my Mr. B is grilling.  Oh yeah.

There's nothing I love more with a juicy steak than a lovely, wine-infused sauce just poured all over it.

I'm also a huge fan of meaty mushrooms and sweet, sauteed onions.  They're the perfect compliment.

Naturally, I wanted to create a quick and easy sauce that would incorporate all three elements!

So here's what I did:

I chopped up two portobella mushroom caps in large pieces.

Into a pan went a generous drizzle of olive oil and two tablespoons of butter.

Once the butter was melted and everything got all bubbly, I added 2 minced cloves of garlic.  This was stirred around and cooked for only about a minute before the mushrooms were added.

Mmm...they got so nice and brown and tender.  I love them so much.

To this I added around 3/4 cup of red wine.  Yummy.

Then I added 1 thinly sliced small onion.  I didn't brown it beforehand because I really wanted the flavor of the wine to soak into the onions, rather than any browned flavor.  I also gave it a good sprinkle of salt an pepper.  I then let it cook down until the wine had all but evaporated.  This took around, oh, 20 minutes or so.

I mean, look at that.  Just look at it.  All purple and glisteny and wonderful.  And oh, boy, does it look good over a steak.

Tastes good, too! The onions are so sweet, having soaked up all that wine.  And those mushrooms...I can't even describe it.

And you know where else this is good? Over pasta.

Because I totally went there for lunch the next day.  It was worth a try, let me tell you.

Give it a shot - it's incredible.  I know you'll enjoy it!

I'm not sure... I think you can just click follow on the Googl follow thing on the left. But your comment isn't showing up either, so maybe I broke my blog already. Sigh.

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
