Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions

A traditional pot roast generally includes onions, garlic and occasionally mushrooms. But since we are cooking a puppy friendly roast, I needed to omit these ingredients. Therefore, I made this topper to satisfy my better half John’s pallet!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • cup ¼red wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a medium sauté pan with olive oil. Sauté the mushrooms and onions until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic for another minute, until it smells fragrant.
  • Turn the heat on low and deglaze the pan with the red wine.
  • Wait until the wine evaporates and then season with salt, pepper and thyme.
  • Top the two-legged family member’s pot roast and enjoy. This also makes a great side dish. I would use white wine instead for poultry or fish.
