Burgundy Mushroom Sauce over Beef for #SundaySupper

Elevate your next steak dinner…or burger…with a burgundy mushroom sauce laced with onion and garlic. 
Burgundy Mushroom Sauce over Beef

This week the Sunday Supper group partnered with Gallo Family Vineyards to showcase ways to pair, cook and entertain with Hearty Burgundy wine. It’s turning 50 this year and that deserves a celebration! I was lucky enough to receive a limited edition bottle commemorating the anniversary. It contains the “original Red Blend,” combining flavors ranging from dark berry to red plum and is matched as close as possible to the original blend for this wine. I’m a little nostalgic at the thought.

Burgundy Mushroom Sauce over Beef

The first recipe that came to mind for this occasion is burgundy mushroom sauce.

Sweet onions, garlic and meaty mushrooms are sauteed and then soak up Hearty Burgundy wine while the mixture reduces to a sauce. You’d think such a rich tasting side would take a long time to prepare. But, it doesn’t. The entire steak dinner takes about 30 minutes start to finish. Burgundy Mushroom Sauce over Beef

I love the out-on-the-town feel of this recipe! The steak is for my hubby. It’s a great topping on burgers too. But, I’d be perfectly happy with just a big bowl of the burgundy mushroom sauce and a glass of Hearty Burgundy wine. 🙂
