These mushrooms are sauteed in butter then simmered in wine and seasonings for 3 hours – until they are super tender, make your entire house smell delicious, and absorb all those wonderful flavors!!! I always serve my mushrooms with steak and wine, but these are so good they could be a meal in themselves served with a salad or baked potato.
I adapted this recipe from The Pioneer Woman. There is certainly nothing wrong with her recipe, except she cooks her mushrooms for 9 hours!!! If we eat steak and mushrooms we usually have them on Sundays for lunch… and I certainly am not going to get up in the middle of the night to start mushrooms – I love my sleep. So I adapted her recipe to be made in the morning and be ready at lunch and they turn out perfect every time 🙂
If you are wondering if wine is gluten free, I recommend you read this and this. I don’t worry about gluten being in wine, but if you have concerns buy a certified gluten free wine or buy a brand that only makes wine to ensure that the materials used to make the wine have not been cross-contaminated. Enjoy!
