What type of Mushroom to use?

I personally prefer using white button mushroom, or crimini mushrooms because they are firmer and they have better texture to the dish. The mushroom remains plump so you get to see more chucks. Regardless what kind of Mushroom you choose, use the fresh mushroom and not the canned mushroom.

Can I add wine to simmer the mushroom?

Definitely. The original Beef Bourguignon is simmered in a combination of wine and broth. I don’t use alcohol in my dish so I substituted it with vegetable broth. You can make it 50% wine and 50% broth. Use the wine to de-glaze the mushroom then pour the broth next.
