Mushroom and Figs

I made an interesting accompaniment with baby bella mushrooms and dried mission figs. Went well with some breaded baked chicken, but pork chops would be good also.

Software
Quart of baby bella mushrooms, sliced
Onion finally diced, about half cup
4-6 garlic cloves, crushed
Olive oil
Chopped parsley
Balsamic vinegar

Dozen dried mission figs, quartered
Cup of white win, half oz butter

Hardware
Sauce pan
Frying pan

Pattern
Toss the figs, wine, and butter into the suace pan. Simmer until reduced by half.

In the fry pan, saute the onion and garlic with olive oil. Add the mushrooms and some more oil if needed.

Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Strain the wine and fig mixture into the mushrooms. Add the parsley and splash of balsamic.

Season, stir, and reduce.

Good stuff.
