The resulting sauce was delicious and the mushrooms were delightful but they looked very strange - they were red like the wine (duh!). Anyway, is it a no-no to use red wine because of this? Should I have used only white wine for my sauce with mushrooms?

If you don't mind the color, red wine is fine.

There is also a german dish called "geschnetzeltes" which is essentially some type of meat (turkey or veal being quite common) cut into small pieces and stewed with a lot of mushrooms, cream and some herbs and then served over potato dumplings. a recipe:

Ingredients for 4 persons:
  • 300 g (0.66 pounds) fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • juice of lemon
  • spices
  • 600 g (1.3 pounds) veal, cut in small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 onion, cut in very small pieces
  • 1 dl (3.4 fl. ounces) white wine
  • 1 to 2 dl (3.4 to 6.8 fl. ounces) water
  • 1.5 to 2 dl (5 to 6.8 fl. ounces) cream
  • gravy-powder
  • paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • grind pepper
  1. Cook the mushrooms together with the lemon juice in a small, covered pot. Heat up slowly, cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the liquid into a cup. Add some spices to the mushrooms, keep them warm.
  3. Melt the margarine in a frying-pan
  4. Add the onions, stew. Increase the heat, add the meat, add some water and roast gently. Turn the meat occasionally to make sure it gets roasted evenly.
  5. Remove the meat.
  6. Add the white wine, let cook until the liquid thickens.
  7. Add the liquid from 2. plus some gravy-powder, cook until the sauce binds.
  8. Add the cream and increase the heat slightly.
  9. Add paprika and some spices.
  10. Pour salt, pepper and teaspoon paprika on the meat. Put meat into the sauce, increase the heat, but do not cook.
  11. Add the mushrooms.
Then just make normal potato dumplings (hardball sized are best!)

I dehydrate or freeze extra mushrooms, which keeps them available indefinitely until I have a recipe in need of them.

Fry them with butter, garlic, chipotle chilies, and add cilantro for a delicious, spicy dish.

Wow, all these suggestions sound really good. I'll copy the stews and sauces to a file and try them another time.

At the moment my freezers are both full so I'm looking at making a duxelle... I figure that's the smallest volume I can put the 'shrooms in. Then I just need something to put the duxelle in :P I think I'll probably make small crepes and use it in that.

Thanks for your help everyone... I'll post the burger recipe soon because it was really good.

When I have extra mushrooms, I blanch them in boiling water, and freeze them.

If you have any steak, grill the mushrooms, brushing with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Grill the steaks. Serve the steak on top of the mushroom.

Stuff with crab stuffing. Or, a cheesy stuffing with bread crumbs, sauteed onions, etc. Or better yet, a cheesy crab stuffing (no pun intended).

If you make the duxelles, you can stuff the duxelles into smaller mushrooms, top with cheese, and bake. Or, cut a pocket into boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, brown the chicken, place in a casserole, and saute some onions and sliced mushrooms in the pan you browned the chicken in. Place the veggies over the chicken. Deglaze the pan with a little white wine, and make a cream sauce. Pour over the chicken, cover and bake for an hour at 180 degrees C / 350 degrees F.

Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup, with some fresh thyme and rosemary. After you saute the veggies, deglaze with a bit of good white wine.

When I have lots of mushrooms, I make Lasagne with ham and mushrooms.

Or pizza with mushrooms.
