Sautéd mushrooms w/red #Wine Done

Cremini Mushrooms (sautéed)
by James Belardo

Sautéed mushrooms are a simple side-dish that that goes great with grilled fish, chicken, beef and particularly steak. We prefer Cremini mushrooms because of their slightly more intense and earthy flavor compared to white mushrooms. Cremini mushrooms are actually ‘baby portabellos’ and may also be called brown mushrooms. 

1 – 2 cups sliced Cremini mushrooms
1 – 2 cloves diced garlic
1/4 – 1/2 onions (Shallots can be used in substitution of the garlic and onions)
2 – 3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp bacon fat (optional)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 cup red wine (optional)
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) (optional)
Flat-Leaf Parsley
Salt and Pepper 

1. Sauté onions in 2 tbsp olive oil until showing signs of translucency then add the garlic and hot pepper flakes. Cook until the garlic begins to soften.
2. Add the butter and (optional) bacon fat, toss in the sliced mushrooms and cook until tender.
3. Add a dash of salt and some black pepper and the red wine (optional).
4. let the red wine reduce until reaching the consistency desired.
Must add red #Wine to sautéed mushrooms
5. Toss in the cut flat-leaf parsley and serve immediately
