Meat Free Mondays...Mushroom Salpicao

I am a huuuuge meat lover. I used to really hate vegetables and any dish that didn't have any form of meat. All that changed though when I discovered that salads could be yummy in so many different ways and forms - especially when paired with really good ingredients. I also  did some weeks eating the Lazy Lunch Club meals and all the dishes are completely meat free and they were so good! It just goes to show that there are countless ways to spice up ANY dish even the non-carnivore ones. 

Mushroom Salpicao

I am definitely still not (and never will be, I think!) a vegetarian/a vegan but eating meatless food has recently become more bearable with all the creative and yummy ways to prepare it.  One of my favorite non-meat items to eat are mushrooms. I recently had this thought of making Mushroom Salpicao. For those who don't know, Salpicao is a way of cooking  beef with lots of garlic, some soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. It's really good! I researched on ways to make salpicao (there are several out there who've also made it with mushrooms too) and I just kind of put together all that I read and came up with this concoction. Read on to find out how I made mine.

Ingredients: Salt, Pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, White Wine, Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Butter, an assortment of mushrooms (i used both canned and fresh), chopped garlic, chopped onions.

Saute the onions and garlic in some olive oil.

Add in the mushrooms and cook.

Once mushrooms are cooked, put in the  ingredients in this photo: seasonings, white wine (about 2 to 3 tbsps), soy sauce (1tbsp) and Worcestershire sauce. (1tbsp)

Mix all ingredients in the pan thoroughly, make sure it gets to all the mushrooms!

Add in a small dollop of butter just to make it a bit more rich and delicious. Let it melt and mix well with everything.

And it's done!!! 

You can even eat this dish with rice - it's so flavoful and for a moment you can imagine you're actually eating meat!
