Look at those beautiful oyster mushrooms on the photo above!  I just love all types of mushrooms and use them in a lot of my recipes. I’ve made mushroom soups, mushroom pasta, mushroom pizza, mushroom ravioli, and many other dishes that have not yet made it to my site. But what I especially like about mushrooms is that they work great as flavorful and easy-to-make side dishes to be served with steaks, pork chops, chicken, duck, etc. Today’s dish is one of those easy and delectable side dishes: red wine mushroom sauce recipe with a little bit of cream.

This is one of my favorite ways to serve mushrooms alongside grilled steak, veal chops, and other meats. Here, I just happened to have oyster mushrooms, which is what you see on the photos, but this recipe also works great with regular white (button) mushrooms.

What’s also cool about this recipe is that you can stop at any of the 3 steps and serve these mushrooms in 3 easy different ways as described below:

1) Heat olive oil in a large skillet, add oyster mushrooms. Cook on high heat for about 4 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. You can actually stop right here and use it as-is as your side dish. Your mushrooms will look wonderfully delicious like this:

2) Or you can continue and add 1/2 cup of wine, close the lid and let mushrooms and wine simmer for about 10 minutes covered until wine is not red any more and becomes brown in color and infused with wonderful mushrooms flavors. You can stop cooking right here and use this as a sauce, it’s yummy and will look like this:

3) Or you can continue and add heavy cream, stir well, and cook on low for 2 minutes to infuse flavors, season with salt and pepper, and there you have your mushroom cream sauce, which is super delicious:
