How to Make 3 Ingredient Mushroom Sauce
Hopefully winter is officially over where you are, because spring is definitely here! The sun was out today and it was a nice surprise, since the forecast predicted an overcast day with a good chance of rain. I just had to grill up some burgers and 3 ingredient mushroom sauce to put on them.
I haven’t made this 3 ingredient mushroom sauce since last fall. Oh, my dear mushroom sauce, I have missed you more than words can express!
Well, ok. I admit the sauce is soooo good but I miss the sun just as much.
One of the things that makes this sauce good is the beer. I love to use Black Butte Porter for meats, sauces and beer dip and it really makes these mushrooms worth writing about.
These mushrooms are perfect for your favorite burger or sandwich, but I love it tossed with some penne and roasted red peppers too. It’s a thick, rich sauce that clings to the mushrooms and doesn’t leave a lot of drippings behind. I highly recommend it. If you can get your hands on that Black Butte Porter, I recommend using that too. You can always use your favorite dark beer if that is what you prefer. I’m just a big fan of the way that this beer reduces since I am not a really big fan of beer. Unless it’s simmered with butter and mushrooms.
- 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 6 oz. Black Butte Porter or your favorite dark beer
- Preheat a medium saucepan on medium high heat and melt butter.
- Toss in the mushrooms. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring once in awhile.
- Pour in the beer and stir together. Cook for 20 minutes or until sauce is as thick as you would like.
- Remove from heat.
