For those of you who downloaded this recipe before June 30, 1999 take a look at this simplified version. It came about in the usual way – guests for dinner and no time to go shopping. Since I didn’t have any tofu or onions I made mashed “potatoes” without them and not only were they easier they tasted even better! I even received an e-mail the next day from one of my dinner guests who still couldn’t believe he hadn’t eaten “real” mashed potatoes. Yes, I couldn’t resist. I told.

Heat butter or oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onions and a small pinch of pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and a small pinch of pepper. Continue cooking without stirring for two minutes. Add vinegar, stir and continue sautéing until vegetables are browned and the vinegar has caramelized, about four to five minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Don’t add salt while cooking or the vegetables won’t caramelize, they’ll steam as the salt releases their juices. Pile veggies on top of the steak.
Make extra onions to use in sandwiches, or on top of a burger, a green salad ... Remove the extra onions before adding the mushrooms. Or, just go ahead and double up on the entire recipe as Balsamic Mushrooms are great on sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
