Burgundy Bourguignon Button Mushrooms

Ingredients
  1. 1 C Onion Diced to ½” Squares
  2. 4 Oz Salt Pork to ½” Cubes
  3. 2 C Beef Broth Or Stock (Water & Beef Base)
  4. 1 lb Quartered Button Mushrooms Room Temperature
  5. ½ C Burgundy – you can increase this a little if you want a stronger wine flavor
  6. 1 T Porcini Dust (Not Necessary)
  7. 2 T Tomato Paste
  8. 2 T Butter
  9. ¼ t Pepper
  10. Salt Only If Necessary
Directions
  1. Cut rind off salt pork and cube.
  2. In a sauté pan slowly fry cubes until crispy, and remove to drain.
  3. Sauté quartered mushrooms in leftover pork fat on medium high to high heat. The idea is not to let the mushrooms “stew” in their own juices but to brown them quickly. Preheat pan and when you begin to sauté them do not stir or move them for a couple of minutes and then stir and brown. Remove mushrooms, reduce heat and add tomato paste for a minute or so.
  4. Add diced onions and beef broth to pan and bring to a very gentle simmer for 12-15 minutes. This reduces liquid and intensifies flavors.
  5. If you have porcini dust, sprinkle it over mushrooms, add back to stock & onions, and add wine. You may need to increase the heat just a bit to bring it to a simmer, but DO NOT boil. Simmer all for additional 12-15 minutes. Mushrooms will soak in flavors.
  6. With pan off heat, swirl 1 T butter into mixture and before it has melted swirl in second T butter. This will thicken your sauce.
  7. Plate and sprinkle with salt pork lardoons.
