  • frying pan


  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 lbs assorted fresh mushrooms chopped
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup bourbon
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp parsley dried
  • 2 tsp French thyme dried


  • In a large skillet, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook 12-15 minutes, until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add bourbon and cook 2-3 more minutes. Reduce heat to low and add garlic, parsley and thyme. Cook 2-3 more minutes.


I made this side on New Years Day with a nice steak that I made with a coffee and brown sugar rub for and then marinated in bourbon and Worcestershire sauce. As much as I love bourbon, it was way to much!
I would love to try this recipe again and possibly cut the bourbon in half.
Lesson learned… Looks good in the picture, but never marinate your steak in bourbon!
