Easy Sauteed Mushrooms are white button mushrooms sliced and sauteed with butter, garlic, white wine, and teriyaki sauce and finished off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for extra flavor. Button mushrooms are not just for salads. These days, easy-sauteed mushrooms can become a favorite as a delicious side dish, or an appetizer. Add them directly on top of steaks, chicken, or veal, or serve them on crusty bread as a mushroom bruschetta.
Today I had to post this recipe for one main reason, everyone has been asking how I make these sauteed mushrooms, and I just realized that in all these years I never posted this simple recipe.
These mushrooms as a side dish are terrific served with roasted meats and poultry.
Serve them over our London Broil Steak, alongside our Chicken Cutlets with Garlicky Asparagus, or with our Parmesan Crusted Turkey Cutlets.
So let’s get started, shall we?
What kind of mushrooms should we buy?
I prefer button mushrooms, which are white, round-shaped mushrooms.
They seem to be the most common variety of edible mushrooms and can be found in most supermarkets around the world.
Button mushrooms are perfect for this recipe, and other mushrooms could easily work as well.
They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and are known to help reduce inflammation. A win-win for everyone!
White button mushrooms are sold in small or large containers. My recipe is based on using an 8-ounce container that serves 2 to 3 servings.
If you are going to prepare a larger portion for a gathering, just double some of the ingredients in this recipe.
Keep in mind, you will need to give them a good rinse to these mushrooms before slicing them. Drain, or gently pat dry with a paper towel.
Then slice each mushroom thinly, approximately 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch. This will ensure they will cook quickly and become tender to the bite.
Besides, if you slice the mushrooms too thick; as a result, they might turn out too rubbery.
Easy sauteed mushrooms are flavorful and quick and easy to make!
Simply toss them into the skillet with lots of garlic, olive oil, and a few more ingredients and let them simmer until they are golden brown and tender. Then serve! …that’s it.
Fresh garlic really gives a punch of flavor to them and so does red crushed pepper. So be sure not to leave those out.
From start to finish, easily sauteed mushrooms are ready in less than 15 minutes!
Or you can eat them alone!
These sauteed mushrooms always taste amazing!! So flavorful, I bet it will be the first thing that will disappear from your table.
Try them! I think you will love these easy sauteed mushrooms as much as we do!
A COOK’S NOTES:
1. What if I don’t have white wine? You can use red wine with this recipe, it will work just fine.
2. If I don’t have any garlic, can I make them without it? Yes, but you may use chopped onions (1 medium size) sauteing them first to soften, and add in some garlic powder to give them flavor.
3. No need to dry them after they are rinsed. Just toss them into a colander, and allow them to drain while you slice them.
