Mushrooms Sautéed in Red Wine Sauce

Vickie Parks


This is a Greek recipe originating from Cyprus. In Greece, it's called Manitaria Afelia. It's versatile and can be served a number of ways, such as an appetizer, or part of a meze selection, or as a side dish to accompany a main dish of grilled meat. I used thinly sliced button mushrooms and served it over broiled Sirloin steaks, and it was a stupendous. But I would use whole mushrooms (on the smaller size) if serving this as an appetizer.
