Recipe: Paleo Sauteed Balsamic Mushrooms

Recipe: Paleo Sauteed Balsamic Mushrooms

Sauteed mushrooms are one of my favorite sides to a nice steak or some grilled chicken. This recipe is so simple but is full of flavor and nobody will know you only spent a few minutes throwing this lovely side dish together.

Even people who don’t usually like mushrooms tend to like this recipe. I have to guard the pan when I cook these because everyone tries to crowd around and steal mushrooms from the pan, so make sure you stay alert! If anyone gets too close just whap them with a spatula and make sure to defend your mushrooms!

Ingredients:
– 1 lb. white button mushrooms
– 3 Tbsp. bacon fat/lard or tallow
– 1 small white onion, finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
– 2 cloves garlic, chopped
– 1/2 tsp. sea salt
– 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
– 1 1/2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
– 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Equipment:
– Cutting board
– Chef knife
– Paper towels
– Measuring spoons
– Large skillet
– Stirring spoon

Directions:
1. Wipe mushrooms with a slightly damp paper towel to clean them, then slice in half. Set aside.
2. Place the bacon fat/lard or tallow in a large skillet and place of medium-high heat. Allow the fat to melt, then add the mushroom, onion and garlic and cook about 8-10 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender, stirring frequently.
3. Add the sea salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar to the pan and stir to coat. Cook another 2 minutes, then serve with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley on top. (1)
