4 Servings


  • Do not "crowd" the mushrooms.

    • Too many mushrooms will cause them to simmer/steam in their own juices. Keeping them apart will reduce this effect. It's OK if you have to do several batches, the mushrooms cook pretty fast.

  • Do not stir the mushrooms

    • We want the heat to hit the same area to form a "crust".
      They will start to brown on one side as you cook them.
      Flip them when they are well browned, this happens in about 3 to 4 minutes.

  • For recipes like pasta sauce, you can add the mushrooms when you add the meat.

  • For recipes like steak, add the mushrooms right before serving: usually on top of the steak.

  • For recipes like grilled cheese, add the mushrooms to the sandwich before cooking the sandwich.
