  1. Start your campfire using wood; the smoky flavor will add depth to your mushroom dish. Once the coals are ready, put a cooking grate over the top of the fire and set a large frying pan on top. Place olive oil and butter in pan. Heat until melted.
  2. Add shallots; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add garlic and rosemary; stir. Add the brown cremini mushrooms; cook, stirring 3 to 5 minutes, until slightly soft.  Cooking time will depend on how hot the fire is.  Add portobello mushrooms; cook, stirring, 3 to 5 minutes. Add lemon juice; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add wine and cook down about 5 minutes. Stir in morels, and lightly heat 3 minutes. Serve over grilled steaks.
