Burgundy Mushrooms are the ultimate mushroom. Slow simmered in red wine, garlic, butter, and spices these mushrooms are decadent. Serve over steak or eat as an appetizer- they will be a fast favorite. This recipe is prepared on a stove top, but I have included slow cooker instructions as well!
September is National Mushroom month and who would I be is I was not sharing one of my favorite things to eat with all of you.
Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods, but you might notice that you do not see them very often on here. The reason for that is my husband. Yes. All. His. Fault. It actually isn’t, but he is allergic to these delicious bites of heaven so I tend to keep them out of recipes. He doesn’t have a sever reaction, but it isn’t comfortable for him. However, that means any time he is gone, or I go out, I get mushrooms on everything.
One thing I will never give up is this recipe. This recipe is my all-time favorite mushroom recipe, and probably one of my favorite things to eat. This is my most requested recipe during the holidays, and there are hardly ever leftovers. However, even if there where they would get gobbled-up the following day.
So what makes these mushrooms so special?
Wine and butter my friends, wine and butter. These mushrooms are cooked in full-bodied red wine, butter, and herbs. They are cooked for a very long time, but it creates the most flavorful delicious mushroom you will ever have.
I love to serve these for a party or the holidays because the smell of them cooking just fills the house with the most delicious aromas.
These mushrooms are delicious on their own, over potatoes, over steak with a little blue cheese, or even over crusty bread to mop up all the sauce. They are truly the best comfort food.

Frequently Asked Questions
I do not have burgundy wine- what do you suggest?
I have used Merlot and Cabernet for this recipe and it produced delicious results.
Can I use baby portabella mushrooms?
Yes! I have also used these as well and love them as much as I love the white button.
Is the dill flavor strong?
I do not think so. I like the contrast it adds to the richness of the mushrooms.
Can I add a little salt?
I do not think it needs salt, but everyone is different. If you do add it add it at the end after you have tasted the mushrooms.
Can I use garlic powder and not cloves for a shortcut?
Sure, I have done this as well. I use a 1/2 tsp per clove substitution.
