Here are a couple items I use to cook with on a regular basis (these are Amazon affiliate links – I earn a small commission if you buy through these links – but it helps me pay for everything that goes into this blog!):
– I love to cook in this super awesome non-stick ceramic skillet when I make dishes like this.
– I love walnut cooking spoons. They work well for cooking, but really, I like the way they look. Yes, sometimes that’s a thing.
How to Make Buttery Brandied Sauteed Mushrooms
Not only are these things amazing tasting, they are super simple to make, and take less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
First, make sure the mushrooms are rinsed well. Mushrooms tend to be dirty straight out of the package.
I’ve forgotten to rinse them before and the results were not ideal, i.e. mushrooms with dirt sauce.
SEE BELOW FOR STEP BY STEP PHOTOS.
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat and add the mushrooms.
We want to cook them for about 5 minutes, until they start to soften and wilt a bit.
Add the brandy and cook about 2-3 minutes, or until most of the brandy has evaporated.
Then add the beef broth and thyme. Again, cook until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 2-3 minutes.
And the best part…add the cream and cook until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
Finish with salt (add more or less according to taste) and dive in.
These sauteed mushrooms with brandy would be awesome served over steak, as a topping for potatoes, or just eaten alone. With your fingers. Straight out of the pan.
