What Are Sautéed Mushrooms Good With

Well damn, a better question is what are sautéed mushrooms not good with? Maybe ice cream or pumpkin pie. I love sauteed mushrooms with many dishes. I think the plain ole mushroom burger is one of my favorite burgers. How about some sautéed mushrooms with your grilled steak or chicken. Sautéed mushrooms go great with just about any meat, with the exception of fish, but I say that only because I have never eaten them with fish.

When Are Sautéed Mushrooms Done

When you make any sautéed mushroom recipe you cook them till they are the desired consistency. Often this may only be about 5 to 10 minutes. I usually can tell by look, but take one out and taste it and see if you like the consistency. If you do, they are done. It’s a damn preference and I’m not going to give you an exact time, just a general idea of how long to sautée them.

Can Cooked Mushrooms Be Frozen

I have to admit, I have never tried to freeze sautéed mushrooms. A couple of years ago, when I took a mushroom hunting class, the instructor told us that you could freeze fresh mushrooms, but I never thought to freeze sautéed mushrooms. I have frozen mushrooms in other dishes like soup, but in my opinion, fresh is best, so I would rather cook them up fresh. Still, you want to try it, lets us know in the comments below how it goes.

How To Season Sautéed Mushrooms

I’m a big believer in simple seasonings. You want to bring out the flavor of the food with seasoning not overpower it. For this reason, plain old salt and pepper are best. I also like to add some garlic because I freaking love TONS of fresh garlic on just about everything. You can leave out the Worcestershire sauce from this recipe and it would still be effing delicious. Just saying. The chopped parsley can also be optional, but use fresh chopped parsley if you can, not dried.

How To Cook Sautéed Mushroom Recipe

If you want to keep it really simple, buy the mushrooms pre-cut. Personally, enjoy chopping mushrooms so I often buy them whole. You can use any type of mushroom really but I generally stick with baby portobello or button mushrooms. The one thing to remember about mushrooms is that they soak up a lot o the oil or butter you cook them with so the recipe calls for a lot. Mixing the olive oil with butter makes a nice flavor but you can use just one or the other if you like.
