I turn 35 tomorrow. That feels tragic.
I know that it’s not a big deal, but it give me some mixed emotions. But really, don’t people have some sort of crisis about their age at every stage of life? I just always have mixed emotions about my birthday, at any age.
No matter what I am looking forward to a chill birthday. Hopefully I can take a nap. See, I’m definitely old!
Sauteed Red Wine Garlic Mushrooms

Well, you can simply make them at home!!!

These Sauteed Red Wine Garlic Mushrooms are a umami packed side dish that will have you reaching for seconds until you run out.
Umami is one of the five basic tastes. It is also known as the savory taste. It is a rich bold taste that can be found in foods like Parmesan cheese, broths, and mushrooms.
Mushrooms already have that rich umami flavor, but when you saute them, then add more bold flavors like garlic and red wine, it amplifies that even more.
One of the best things about these mushrooms is that they are so simple to make. You start by gently sauteing the shallots and garlic. Be sure to not let them burn, otherwise, they will become very bitter. This is just to soften them and make them golden in color. Then you add you mushrooms. Stirring them often let them saute until they have reduced in size a bit. Then you add the wine and let the mushrooms reduce by half. Lastly, you add salt, pepper, and a generous sprinkling of parsley at the end.
Once you have a bite, you’ll instantly fall in love with these mushrooms. They are hearty, rich, taste meaty, and so incredibly delicious.
Enjoy these steakhouse style mushrooms with dinner tonight! They are hearty, rich, and so easy for the most delicious mushroom side dish.
Do I need to use shallots?
No, you don’t need to use shallots. You can substitute a yellow onion, but the shallot adds a great flavor that you can’t really replicate, so I strongly encourage using them.
What kind of wine do I need?
I suggest using a bold red, one that is dry, verse sweet. A Merlot would be great for this recipe. Be sure to enjoy a glass at dinner too!
