Duxelles is a finely chopped (minced) mixture of mushrooms or mushroom stems, onions, shallots and herbs sautéed until it has reduced to a paste. It is a basic preparation used in stuffings and sauces (notably, beef Wellington) or as a garnish.
- Finely chop the mushrooms. Chop them in a blender into small pieces… but do not puree them.
- Transfer to a pot. Add the olive oil and cook over medium to high heat.
- Lower heat and add the salt which will help them release their liquid.
- Saute for 30-45 minutes or until they completely dry out and shrink down to about 1/4 of their previous volume.
- You want your mixture to look like an olive paste when its ready. This process takes over half an hour.
- Finally, add the salt and pepper to taste.
- Your Duxelles is ready! Set it aside until needed.
