I have fresh thyme growing and will give it a try next time we make these. Thanks IC, you always give good ideas.

Wow CJ, we do something almost identical, too... they are soooo delicious, aren't they!! I also like a variation with sour cream instead of regular cream, with a shot of vodka, adding a touch of Russia
They are also delicious over farfalle(bow tie) type of pasta!

edited to add... oops, Charlie D already mentioned about the sour cream idea!! well, here's another vote from me... it is really worth a try!

This is one of my favorite mushroom recipes that I've adapted & tweaked over the years from The Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two. It's good & substantial enough to satisfy meat-eaters as well, thus makes a terrific dish for mixed company of both vegetarians & non-vegetarians. Good crusty bread & a big mixed green salad are all you need to make this a wonderful meal. Maybe I should cross-post this over on the Vegetarian forum as well - lol!)


Mushroom Stroganoff (adapted from The Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two)

1/4# fresh Shitake mushrooms
1/4# fresh Oyster mushrooms
1/4# fresh Cremini mushrooms
1/2# fresh White Button mushrooms
1/2 medium onion, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
Pinch of dried thyme
Salt to taste
Fresh-ground black pepper
1=1/4 cup chicken broth
8-ounce container sour cream
2 tablespoons brandy
1/4-cup dry sherry
1# or so of wide egg noodles
2-3 teaspoons poppy seeds
Butter to toss with egg noodles

Cook noodles according to package directions, drain, & toss with a few tablespoons of butter & the poppyseeds. Cover & set aside.

Wash the mushrooms thoroughly under running water, trim, (removing any tough stems), & slice thickly. In a large skillet, saute onion in the 4 tablespoons butter until transparent, then add mushrooms & continue cooking until they have released their excess moisture & it's starting to evaporate. Add thyme, chicken broth, & 3 tablespoons of the sour cream, lower heat, & simmer gently for 15 minutes, stirring often. Add brandy, sherry, salt & pepper to taste, & the rest of the sour cream, stirring gently just until sour cream is heated thru. Do not overheat or sauce will curdle, but this is just an appearance issue & won't affect the taste. Taste & correct seasoning if necessary.

Serve over noodles. Although the sour cream "might" curdle a little, leftovers are just as tasty nuked in the microwave for lunch the next day.

Edited to add that for true vegetarians - sub vegetable broth, water, or a mix of water & wine for the chicken broth.

Breezy,
this looks wonderful. While I enjoy meats and poultry and fish, there are times when I prefer something like this. It's on my to make soon list and thanks for sharing.

Oh - I should add that you can definitely sub whatever mushrooms look best at your market. If all they have are Portabellos & white buttons, then heck, buy them & chop up the big Portabellos.

When I have a taste for this dish, I just buy whatever looks good at the market - even if it's just fresh white button mushrooms. Just adjust the quantities accordingly.

Trust me - it will still taste GREAT, regardless of which mushrooms you use. Just try to keep the quantity the same - even if it's just one type of mushroom.

Kadesma, I adore mushrooms. Some of the classics (those oldies, but goodies) came to mind like Duxelles and paprikash and any wine/shallot sauce is heaven. The heavy cream - "you're killing me Larry", I like it!. There goes one New Year's resolution. Pass me a big thick juicy steak to go with. Thank you.

You reminded me of a to-die-for mushroom croissant I made years ago from a recipe I tweeked from the Times? Problem is I kept adding in ingredients as I went along and didn't write it down. I still have the basic recipe stored away, yellowing w age. I'll have to go dig it out.

And to finish it off, after mushrooms are done put them in oven proof container, the smaller the better, like individual portions size, add some cheese on the top and bake untill cheese melts and then turn on the broiler for a minute or two to brown the cheese just a little bit, that's even tastier.

Add breadcrumbs or panko to that and you have mushroom gratinee.
