1/2             cup (1 stick) butter, divided
2                tablespoons lemon juice
8                ounces white button mushrooms, quartered (2-1/2 cups)
1/2             cup minced shallots or onion, divided
1                cup Pinot Noir or other dry red wine
1                can (1/3-3/4 ounces) reduced-sodium, ready-to-serve beef broth
1                cup frozen pearl onions
1                teaspoon sugar
5                slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (about 1/3 cup)

To prepare sauce: In a small saucepan place 1/4 cup butter and the lemon juice; heat until butter melts. Add mushrooms; cook covered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove mushrooms to a cup. Transfer liquid to another cup; set mushrooms and liquid aside.

In a large skillet place shallots and wine. Cook over high heat until wine evaporates but shallots are still moist, about 10 minutes. Add beef broth, 1 cup water and reserved mushroom liquid; reduce over high heat until 1-1/3 cups sauce remains, about 1 5 minutes. In same saucepan used to cook mushrooms, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onions, the sugar and 1 tablespoon water; cook uncovered, over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until tender and golden.
