  1. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded and caps thickly sliced
  4. 1/2 pound oyster mushrooms, thickly sliced
  5. 1 large shallot, minced
  6. 1/4 cup Madeira
  7. 3 tablespoons white (shiro) or red (aka) miso
  8. 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  9. 2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
  10. 1 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves
  11. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a very large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the olive oil. Add the shiitake and oyster mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Scrape the mushrooms to 1 side of the skillet.
  2. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter on the other side of the skillet. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, just until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir the shallot into the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes longer.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the Madeira with the miso. Add to the mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat for 1 minute, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom and sides of the skillet. Add the broth, parsley and thyme and simmer until the sauce is slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Season the mushrooms lightly with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and serve.
Serve With Roast chicken, grilled steak or pork or veal chops.
