Mushroom Ragout recipe

This recipe is a perfect side for grilled steaks or chicken breasts. Place a heaping cup of it on a plate and top with the meat. Serves 4.


  • 1 pound of assorted mushrooms, sliced thickly (white, shiitake, porcini, portobello, or cremini)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced thickly
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook just until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Cook until just soft, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add the red wine and continue cooking until almost evaporated, about 8 minutes.

  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
