  • 2 pounds button mushrooms halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 3/4 cup dry sherry
  • salt and pepper


  • Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the butter and oil. Once the butter has melted, add the mushrooms.
  • Allow the mushrooms to sear for 5 minutes, stirring to flip them over. Then add the garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Allow the mushrooms to sear another 5 minutes to develop a rich caramelized color.
  • Stir in the fresh thyme leaves and sherry. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for approximately 10 more minutes, stirring on occasion. The goal is for the mushrooms to absorb the sherry, leaving only a small amount of moisture in the pan.
  • Taste, then salt and pepper again if needed. Serve warm over meat or as a side dish!
