Sautéed mushrooms are a classic accompaniment to a grilled steak. This recipe allows the essence of the earthy mushroom to shine through with its deep meaty quality.
1 cup sliced fresh white mushrooms
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 teaspoon pepper
salt to taste
1 Place sauté pan on med heat for two minutes until the surface is heated. Add olive oil and butter.

2 When butter is melted, add onions and mushrooms. Turn to high heat and sear the mixture a bit. Add a splash of red wine (about 2 teaspoons) and sugar. Sauté 3 minutes.

3 Turn heat to low. Add two tablespoons of red wine to pan, stir and continue to cook for 10 minutes, longer if you prefer a drier texture.
