Mushrooms, Onions & Garlic

Steaks are supposed to be the "main event" in a meal but for me it is all about the mushrooms. Sauted mushrooms, onions & garlic make the perfect side dish that is so simple I hesitated posting it. But if anyone is eating steak without this side, you are not enjoying steak at it's fullest potential. The balsamic vinegar helps caramelize the onions and I love the way the slowly sauted garlic takes on a creamy, buttery texture. This could also be served with grilled chicken. Yum!!
Mushrooms, Onion & Garlic
6 Tbls. butter
1 Tbls. Extra virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, cut in half
1 pkg. white button or baby bella mushrooms, cleaned & quartered
1 onion, sliced
salt, pepper
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
In large saute pan, heat butter and olive oil over medium low heat and add garlic. After garlic has cooked for about 5-8 minutes add onions, mushrooms, and salt/pepper. Saute another 5 minutes and add balsamic vinegar. Continue to saute until golden brown.
