Soakin' Mushroom Recipe!!!
It seems every time I want to make this side dish we can't find the recipe. We are usually either up in Maine- Lake Plaid somewhere other than DC. My son GJ always says- Mom you should put all your recipes on the blog. He is right - easy access. So here goes - we will never be without this one again.
George had this first at a potluck at the Boeing Company in Saint Louis. He asked the women who made it for the recipe and we have been enjoying it ever since!! Great with steak on the grill or a festive beef tenderloin.
4 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons sherry
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 lb mushroom caps. stems removed
1/2 cup whipping cream
Melt butter with sherry and garlic over medium flame in skillet. Add mushrooms and saute till mushrooms are lightly browned and butter is sizzling. Add whipping cream and stir to coat mushrooms. Turn up the flame and boil hard until sauce thickens. Cook to the consistency of a thin custard. Garnish and serve at once.
optional garnishes- parmesan cheese, parsley, green onions or pistachios.
