Mushroom duxelles are an intensely flavored sautéed mushroom and shallot mixture. I was introduced to the concoction when I first made Beef Wellington, a classic use of this semi-paste. I also like to spread the mixture on toasted slices of baguette to make a crostini. Makes 1 cup.

8 oz Mushrooms, Brown, Italian, Or Crimini
2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
3 tbsp chopped Shallots
0.5 tsp, leaves Thyme, Dried
2 oz Vermouth

Recipe Directions for Duxelles

  1. 1. Finely chop mushrooms in a food processor.

  2. 2. Scrape mushrooms out into a clean, cotton towel. (Note: Do not use terry cloth, and choose an old towel as you will stain it.)

  3. 3. Twist towel around mushrooms and wring out as much liquid as you can over the sink.

  4. 4. Heat a large (10-inch) non-stick skillet over a burner set between medium and medium-high.

  5. 5. Add 1 tablespoon butter and swirl to melt and avoid burning.

  6. 6. Add mushrooms, shallots, a pinch of salt, a pinch of black pepper, and thyme.

  7. 7. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms appear dry and are beginning to brown; about 5 minutes.

  8. 8. Stir in remaining tablespoon of butter, and, when melted, the sherry or wine.

  9. 9. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vermouth has evaporated.

  10. 10. Remove from heat and cool.

  11. Note: Duxelles freeze well, so although this recipe produces more than you need for two wellingtons, you can save the remainder for future use.
