Saute 1 large minced garlic clove and a 1/4 C yellow onion or shallot in 1 T olive oil and 1 T butter. Cook on med/low heat until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add a 1/2 C of merlot. As that cooks down slightly, chop a cup of mushrooms and add to the pan. Pop the heat up to a boil, then reduce to low heat and allow the mushrooms to cook for about 5-10 minutes, until the liquid is almost evaporated. Serve warm, but taste first and add a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
