Cooking stew with mushrooms:
Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.
Our stew will be very simple, with three ingredients: sweet pepper, onion and mushrooms. Their preparation will not take much time.
Peel the onion from the husk, cut into strips, and transfer to a clean plate.
Cut the pepper in half, remove the stalk and seeds, rinse under running water and cut in any convenient way. Someone loves bigger pieces, someone - small. For stew, you can chop coarsely.
It is very convenient to use small mushrooms for cooking. Champignons with dark brown hats are called portobello or royal. They have a more pronounced mushroom taste and aroma. If possible, use them; if not, using the usual ones also works well.
Rinse mushrooms under running water. Soak them not worth it, they absorb a lot of liquid, and when frying it will be all in a pan. It is enough to cut small champignons in half, larger ones into four parts.
Step 2: Cook the stew with mushrooms.
Vegetables for stew will be fried separately, and then stew all together. So it turns out for some reason tastier. The order does not matter.
So, put the pan or pan on the fire, put a small piece of butter, heat a little to melt. Add chopped onion and fry over low heat. It will become soft, translucent and very fragrant. Take care not to get burnt. We shift the onion into a suitable dish.
Then, in the same way, slightly fry the pepper in the same pan in which the onion was. You do not need to wash it, but you can add a small piece of butter. So, fry the sweet pepper on a small fire for about 3-4 minutes and shift to the onion. Making room for mushrooms.
We repeat the whole process with mushrooms: add the butter, put the mushrooms and fry for 5-6 minutes.
You noticed that we did not salt a single ingredient or add spices. We will do all this later when we put them together.
Fried mushrooms? Add onions and peppers to them. Pour a little purified water (about 1/2 cup) and mix. Now you can salt and add spices. Be sure to try and focus on your taste.
Cover the pan and cook the stew on low heat for 15-20 minutes. Stir from time to time, make sure that all liquid does not boil away. Now add the cream, mix. Try and add more salt and spices, if necessary. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, then turn off the heat, and leave the stew to brew.
Step 3: Serve the stew with mushrooms.
Serve hot stew with mushrooms as a stand-alone dish or as a side dish. A good addition to it will be a fresh salad, parsley and green onions.
