By Nichole Dailey

Units of Measurement:
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Medium shallot, minced
2 Clove garlic, minced
3 Sprig fresh thyme
1 1/2 Cup beef stock

    Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned about 5 minutes. Stir and cook until the moisture has evaporated from the pan and the mushrooms are browned and tender, another 5 to 10 minutes. Season liberally with salt and pepper.

    Add the butter, shallot, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is tender, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • 3

    Add the thyme sprigs and the beef stock and stir, scraping the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the cream and cook until reduced by half again and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
