Drunken Mushrooms

We all have those night where we feel like being a little bit crazy. So do my mushrooms. Check it.

*based on this recipe, minus some $'s plus some sense


1/2 basket ugly shitake mushrooms ($1.50 - they were on special cuz they were ugly, but I don't discriminate)
1 cup red wine (Trader Joe's Charles Shaw, $1.99)
Butter or Pam (whichever you have)
Lemon ($0.20)
Salt and pepper

The Grand Total: $3.69 - less if you have red wine or lemon lying around, which I obviously did


Wash the mushrooms by rubbing them gently with a damp paper towel.

If using butter, put about 1 tablespoon in a sautee pan and melt over medium heat. If using Pam, spray the pan, place it over medium heat, put in the mushrooms, and spray them again.

When the mushrooms begin to squeal (literally, you'll hear them poppin and sizzlin), add about 1/2 cup - 1 cup of red wine, salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, so the red wine reduces to a thicker consistency.

Dump those wild shrooms on your place. Squeeze on a bit of lemon juice, and reign those babies in.
