Balsamic Glazed Mushrooms

After I posted the classic steak I was suprised at how many emails I recieved requesting the recipe for the mushrooms I served as a side.  Your wait is over!  Here is the recipe for the balsamic glazed mushrooms!

These were as equally delicious as the steak and just as simple to prepare.  These mushrooms were the perfect compliment to the simple flavors of the steak.  The balsamic glaze introduced a whole new depth of flavor to the meal.  And I have to mention the garlic; I love the combination of garlic and mushrooms.  I don't know what it is about that combination, but they definitely are a match made in heaven.  The garlic with the balsamic glaze really compliments one another and makes a perfect sauce for the mushrooms.

These mushrooms are simple yet elegant.  Perfect for a quick side dish but impressive enough for company.  Serve this with any steak and add a simple salad and you have the perfect meal!

Balsamic Glazed Mushrooms


11 oz. chesnut mushrooms
2 Cloves garlic
1 Pat butter
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil


Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat. 

Gently wipe mushrooms with a damp paper towel to clean.  Remove and discard the stems.  Mince the cloves are garlic.

Add olive oil to the pre-heated pan and allow to warm for a few seconds.  Add the mushrooms, and place in a single layer in the pan.  Fry the mushrooms for about 5 minutes on one side, then turn them over.  Add the garlic and salt and pepper and stir the mushrooms to coat.

Once the mushrooms begin to soften and the garlic begins to golden, remove the pan from the heat.  Add the butter and balsamic vinegar, allow the butter to melt and stir to coat the mushrooms in the glaze.
