Do you miss Steak and Ale? You can recreate Steak and Ale Sauteed Mushrooms at home. These simply sauteed mushrooms are divine. They are sauteed in butter and then enrobed in a velvety rich burgundy wine sauce that will have you wanting more.
Steak and Ale restaurants have been out of business for a long time. But you can still create some of their best-known recipes at home. The beauty of a copycat recipe is that you can always recreate that memory whenever you want. These Steak and Ale mushrooms are amazing. They are made very easily.
You will need fresh white button mushrooms, onions, butter, salt, pepper, flour, and some cheap wine. I often keep a box of inexpensive burgundy wine around the house for cooking.
When I went to culinary school, they also had us using a cheap box of wine for our cooking. Do you know what? The food tasted good. So I recommend something like a Franzia Burgundy for the wine.
If you don’t want to do that, use a glass of wine that is hearty and very fruity. If you don’t drink alcohol, you may want to use chicken stock, beef stock, or even vegetable stock.
If you wanted to modify this recipe slightly, you could toss in some garlic. You could also use baby portobello mushrooms instead of button mushrooms.
What makes this recipe unique is that after you saute the mushrooms you will add some flour. Allow the flour to cook for a moment or two, and then you can begin to add the wine.
By making the roux, you will make a thick velvety smooth sauce that takes these mushrooms to the next level.
