Talk about a flavorful fungus! Today, Mr. Food is cookin' up a couple of tasty mushrooms to give our favorite steak that extra zest. Let's head to the kitchen with Mr. Food.
I remember the first time I had the chance to visit a mushroom farm, which by the way, didn't look anything like what you might expect. No big open fields here! You see, mushrooms grow indoors in large climate-controlled rooms in the dark, while many of our specialty mushrooms grow in all sorts of containers in sterile environments that look more like a laboratory! And no matter the variety, mushrooms pair with almost everything.
But what happens when we mix several mushrooms together? In a skillet, on medium-high heat, we melt half a stick of butter and sauté a thinly sliced onion sprinkled with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper for about 4 to 5 minutes, until it's tender. We add 1 package each of white mushrooms, Portobello mushrooms, and shiitake mushrooms that we sliced.
Sauté them about 5 to 7 minutes, until they're soft. We add a couple tablespoons each of Worcestershire sauce and bourbon or red wine, and a bit of salt.
Bring it all to a boil and cook it for a minute or so, and done! And with each mushroom adding its own distinctive flavor and texture to the mix, what a nice new change-of-pace topper for any of our favorites, especially our steaks and chops.
Talk about wow! They'll applaud you!
If you’d like the recipe, just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope marked "Mushroom Trio," to me, Mr. Food, right here at the station, or look for it online for a mix 'n' match treat they're going to love you for! We're wild about mushrooms 'cause they bring out so much "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
