  1. Melt the butter over medium heat in a heavy skillet. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until translucent, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme, zest, and wine; simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
