The Perfect Sautéed Mushrooms…

…With Tips from Chef Robert

Servings: 4

Equipment

·       Sharp Knife

·       Cutting board

·       Sauté  pan (I prefer non stick)

Ingredients

·       1-pound fresh mushrooms

·       2 Tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil (no added oil flavor)

·       2 Tablespoons butter

·       Freshly cracked pepper and salt to taste

Clean & Cut: Do not soak the mushrooms. Clean off excess dirt with a damp towel or give mushrooms a quick rinse and dry. Cut bigger mushrooms into similar-sized pieces. Don’t cut them thin as they will shrink up while cooking. Meaty thick pieces cook best!

Give Them Some Room: Don’t overcrowd your sauté pan, you need plenty of room for a good sear.

High Heat: Turn the heat up to medium-high and allow time for your oil/butter to get hot before adding the mushrooms. Look for the shimmer of the oil. Keeping the heat up will help moisture evaporate quickly giving you a beautifully caramelized mushroom. If mushrooms are giving off lots of moisture keep the heat going until it’s gone. Over washing will contribute to the added moisture. The term “sauté” means high heat …little oil.

 Let’s Do This : Clean and slice mushrooms into similar size pieces. Don’t cut them too thin, as they will shrink while cooking.

Heat oil and butter in a medium to large pan over medium-high heat. Look for the oil to shimmer before adding the mushrooms.

Add mushrooms and toss in the oil quickly. Cook mushroom for 3-5 minutes. Stir and allow mushrooms to finish cooking for a couple more minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Large mushrooms can take a little extra time. 

Deglaze and Season: After a good sauté you’ll notice some bits of the mushroom clinging to the bottom of your pan. There’s a whole lot of flavor there that can be infused back in by a simple deglaze. To capture the flavor add a splash of liquid at the end of the cooking process and stir it all up. Simply, add a few tablespoons of water, wine, stock, cream, or sherry to the pan after the mushrooms are done cooking. Keep the temperature up and stir until the liquid evaporates.  

For Added Flavor: 

Use garlic and herbs. Turn heat down to medium-low and add last minute of cooking. Wonderful herbs to try are thyme, parsley, and rosemary. 

Fresh lemon and or lime

To Make Ahead: Mushrooms can be sauteed ahead of time and stored covered in the fridge for 3-4 day. Reheat in a skillet until warm.

To Freeze: Freezing may change the texture of sauteed mushrooms. After cooking, freeze mushrooms flat on a cookie sheet. Once completely frozen transfer to a freezer-safe container. Thaw and reheat in a pan over medium heat.

Deglaze: Add a few tablespoons of water, wine, stock, cream, or sherry to the pan after the mushrooms are done cooking. Keep the temperature up and stir until the liquid evaporates.
