Hello Smiley’s and Wine Enthusiasts!
I thought I’d kick off the month with a simple and delicious wine recipe. And since we have been encouraged to stay home this month; this month’s posts will be filled with tastings from my wine stash. Bon Apetit!
You will need:
- 2 Cups of clean and sliced mushrooms (brown)
- 2 Cups of Dry Red wine. Add more if it doesn’t touch the top of the mushrooms. You want the wine to cover the mushrooms but you don’t want the mushrooms to drown in the wine.
Combine wine and mushrooms in a quart sized pot. Set temperature to high to bring to a rapid boil. Once boiling, drop temperature to low for 10 to 15 minutes until your liquid boils down.
Serve and enjoy.
This dish can be served alongside red or white meat. Tonight, the mushrooms were served alonside pot roast, roasted pork loin and grilled chicken. The accompanied sides were sauteed spinach and buttered red potatoes. Deeelicious!
The wine that I chose this evening was from Llano Estacado Winery. It was their 2013 Due Compaesani. This wine has notes of raisin and spice. It has full tannins and was enjoyed as a night cap. Because I have had this wine for a while, I thought it would be the perfect cooking wine.
Wine tip: the longer you have a wine, the tasting notes may change.
I hope you enjoyed this Wine Wednesday Recipe and I look forward to sharing more with you in the weeks ahead!
Salu’d, Smiling Danny
