I also used a little bacon grease with the butter when cooking the mushrooms for added flavor. You’ll see my assorted mushrooms I picked up below in red. I thought it was a great switch up to the normal sauces we make for steak. The mushrooms are so light they pick up whatever flavor you cook them in.

Cook 12-15 minutes, until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.  Add bourbon and cook 2-3 more minutes.  Reduce heat to low and add garlic, parsley and thyme.  Cook 2-3 more minutes.
