week 2: burgundy mushrooms

{ image }

For as long as I can remember this has been a recipe that our family has practically begged my mom for on special occasions. Everyone who tries it raves about it. Even if you don’t like mushrooms, you will love this this dish. I PROMISE! So I was excited to include it as a part of our special Valentine’s day dinner. It takes 8-10 hours to cook, but it could not be easier.  And the results are to die for! Seriously…these mushrooms + steak = perfection.

I love this page straight from my mom’s cookbook. See all the traces of wine left on the page? That’s how you know it’s good!

{ burgundy mushrooms }

  • 4 pounds mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 4 cups burgundy wine
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes (or 2 extra large bouillon cube)
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes

Wash mushrooms (when you wash the mushrooms, make sure that you use a damp paper towel to wipe them off. DO NOT rinse them under running water!) The recipe calls for you to remove the stems, but I leave them on. Put all of the ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 5-6 hours. Remove cover and simmer for an additional 3-5 or until the liquid is barely covering the top of the mushrooms. Serve alongside steaks and enjoy!

{ cover and let the cooking begin }

*I cut the recipe in half and it was just more than enough for two.

Note: I had to borrow an image from Pioneer Woman, because sadly I didn’t get a shot of the finished product…her recipe is a little different from my mom’s but I’m sure still just as delicious!
