Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms
Flavorful Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms are deliciously seasoned with butter, garlic and fresh parsley, then pan fried until tender and caramelized. This easy shiitake mushroom recipe comes together in just 15 minutes for a tasty side dish that pairs well with a variety of entrées.
- Start by cleaning the mushrooms. Take a wet paper towel and gently wipe off any dirt from the mushrooms. Refrain from rinsing the mushrooms because they absorb water easily and when cooked they will turn out too chewy. Slice as desired.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the butter and olive oil. Once hot, add in the shiitake mushrooms. Let them sit on medium heat and do not touch them for about 3 minutes. This will create some nice caramelization around the edges of the mushrooms. Stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Pour in the wine, if using, and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and parsley and cook for 1 additional minute.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve and ENJOY!
