Elevate your next steak dinner...or burger...with a burgundy mushroom sauce laced with onion and garlic.
Hearty Burgundy wine is 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.
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.
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. 🙂
Burgundy Mushroom Sauce over Beef
- 4 beef filets about 1 ¼ inch in thickness
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and Pepper
- ¼ cup butter
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil divided
- ½ white onion sliced
- 1 pound mushrooms sliced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 cup Hearty Burgundy wine

- Set beef filets aside and allow them to reach room temperature while preparing mushroom sauce.
- Melt butter and 2 Tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
- Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes.
- Add mushrooms, garlic and thyme and cook for about 3 minutes more.
- Stir in wine, scraping up any brown bits and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 8-10 minutes.
- Remove mushroom sauce to serving dish and keep warm.
- The pan should still be hot from mushroom sauce.

- Add beef filets to pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes without moving the filets.
- Flip the beef filets and cook for 3-4 minutes more.
- Allow steak to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
- Top steaks with Burgundy Mushroom Sauce.
This sure does have that special night out for dinner appeal. What a way to add great flavor to mushrooms. And over beef = Yes!
Thanks Renee! Beef and mushrooms do seem to have a special appeal.
