My sister and I have been trying to replicated a marinated mushroom recipe for some time. My stepmom died several years ago and with that, we lost several recipes. The two specifically that I've been looking for are these delicious marinated mushrooms and a yummy baked Alaska. She had dozens of cookbooks and hundreds of issues of cooking magazines. Many pages were marked in some way. I presume she just knew which place to look for each recipe. We did not.
So anyway, my sister and I have tried out a few recipes for the mushrooms without luck. I think I got pretty close this weekend. Hubby is not sure how I can remember something that I haven't tasted in a good number of years, but I do remember. However, I do remember them looking less yellow. The marinate they sat in I thought was more clear.
1/2 c red wine vinegar (I've seem recipes that call for cider vinegar)
2/3 c olive oil
1 t oregano
1 garlic clove crushed
1/2 t salt
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t pepper
1 pound mushrooms
1 t lemon juice
1 t basil
1 bay leaf
Mix all the ingredients together. Marinate mushrooms at least overnight. I thought the second day was even better!
I can't wait for my sister to make them and see what she thinks. Are we getting closer?
