This was originally known as Morgan Hill Garlic Mushrooms, but since more people are familiar with Gilroy name from the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA I am posting with the Gilroy name. This was from 1979 contest and oh so good. Marinated mushrooms became very popular in the late 1970's and this is a wonderful recipe highlighting both garlic and mushrooms.
- 2 lbs fresh mushrooms
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup white wine vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup red wine or 1⁄3 cup white wine
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- 1 tablespoon salt
- Saute garlic in oil and add vinegar, wine, soy sauce, honey, parsley, and salt. Stir util mixture is hot.
- Place mushrooms in container and pour hot mixture over mushrooms. Marinate for 3 hours or more, turning over several times.
- You can use marinade for later use on more mushrooms or as a salad dressing.
I halved the recipe to use 250 g of mushrooms. Then I poured everything in a jar to marinate. But a few mushrooms were still in the pan. I decided to brown them. And they turned out so tasty. I decided to empty the jar back to the pan and brown all the mushrooms at medium-high heat. The seasonnings are perfect. I omitted the salt. I used dried parsley. Thanks Rinshinomori :) Made for the Australian swap for February 2011
I liked this a lot. Prepared it as "something different" for Thanksgiving. But I was about the only person who liked it. If you are looking for a marinated mushroom recipe with some sophistication, I would recommend this. I used white balsamic vinegar and thought it was wonderful.
This was a little too vinegary for us. I'll try it again with less vinegar or maybe use balsamic.
