Easy and Delicious Mushroom Recipe
Most people are surprised by how many mushrooms you need to make these Sherry Mushrooms. But believe me when I tell you that you’re going to wish you had more at the end! As we all know, mushrooms are mostly water so when they simmer and cook down in this reich butter and sherry wine sauce, you’ll end up with less than half of the volume that you started with.
This mushroom recipe quickly became a family staple at our house for holidays, parties and simply meal prepping for lunches or dinners during the week. Delicious all on their own, but spooning them over sliced steak or chicken is another level of good.
How Do You Make Sherry Mushrooms?
Beside the comforting and literally mind-blowing way these mushrooms taste, another huge bonus for this recipe is that it couldn’t be easier to make. The most time consuming part is cleaning the mushrooms (to wash or not to wash, up to you. We wash) and trimming the stems.
After that just get them in a large pot with two sticks of butter, lots of fresh black pepper, salt and garlic powder.
Can You Make These Sherry Mushrooms In A Slow Cooker?
You definitely can, but they will take longer, as most slow cooker recipes do. These sherry mushrooms need to cook down on the stove top for about two hours, you can even let them go as long as three hours.
So if you do want to make these mushrooms in your crock pot, you’ll need to cook them on the high heat setting for 4 – 6 hours, or on low for 6 – 8 hours.
Can I Use Cooking Wine Instead Of Real Wine?
Please, no. My answer is no. Because we’re cooking these mushrooms down and concentrating the flavor, you need to start off with the best tasting ingredients. Cooking wine found at the grocery store is loaded with preservatives, sweeteners and salt which can result in a not so delicious tasting dish.
Head over to your local liquor store and get the real stuff. A good bottle of sherry wine is very inexpensive and you can use it in so many recipes, it’s worth the buy.
Can I Use A Different Flavor Of Wine?
Yes! We’ve made this mushroom recipe with marsala wine and madeira wine. I have seen some recipes that even make these types of mushrooms with red wine but we haven’t tried that yet, but I’ll let you know when we do.
Again, when buying any other type of wine, get it from the liquor store instead of the grocery store. You’ll thank us when you take one bite of these buttery, luxurious tasting mushrooms.
What Can I Serve With This Mushroom Side Dish?
Just in case you aren’t diving into this pot of mushrooms with a hunk of bread and a fork, we’ve got SO many ideas for serving these sherry mushrooms! These buttery mushrooms are wonderful as a vegetable side, but also as a topping for steak or chicken.
Making a charcuterie board for happy hour? Add these mushrooms with toothpicks in a small bowl for your guests to grab. These mushrooms will go perfectly with cheeses and meats, and can even be served at room temperature. Not cold though, because the butter may start to congeal. If that happens, you can pop the mushrooms in the microwave until they are warm again.
