How Long Does it Take to Sauté Mushrooms?
I’m the type of person that when I have an idea for food I want it now and I don’t want to have to wait. So, if I decide I want to add a little pizazz to a dish or a side I do not want it to derail my meal plans by taking forever. That’s one reason why I love sautéed mushrooms.
Sautéed mushrooms cook up so quickly. They only take about 10 minutes to cook! Yay! And they are so amazing.
Tips for Sautéing Mushrooms
- Wipe mushrooms off with a damp towel. Do not wash with running water. Mushrooms will soak up water if you rinse them, so instead, use a wet paper towel to wash them off. Otherwise there will be too much moisture and they will steam instead of suaté.
- Heat oil and butter: You don’t need to worry about the smoke point like you might have been told before. One of the reasons to mix butter with olive oil is to add flavor while reducing the saturated fat content. Your mushrooms will cook nicely and you will get that great buttery flavor. You want to make sure that mushrooms are sizzling to ensure that you are actually are sautéing your mushrooms and not just steaming them. Mushrooms should be placed in a pan with some space between each of them and you should flip mushrooms half way through cooking time. Stir mushrooms every so often.
- Don’t cook too hot. They do not take long, but to get that buttery soft, ultra-flavorful mushroom, you need to let them sauté first, them simmer second so they can get nice and tender.
How Do You Make Caramelized Mushrooms?
A caramelized mushroom is a delicious thing. When you think caramelization, you might think sugar, but the nice thing about caramelizing mushrooms is no sugar is needed. When mushrooms are cooked down, the natural sugars found in them start to crystalize, and caramelize. The key ingredient is time.
While sautéing mushrooms only takes a few minutes initially, giving them a few extra minutes to cook down will bring out that natural sweetness and result in a delicious side dish.
How to Make Caramelized Mushrooms:
- Sauté Mushrooms
- Cook down
- Add additional seasoning
What Spices go with Sautéed Mushrooms?
What I love about sautéing mushrooms is all the different spice blends you can utilize. My personal favorite way to make sautéed mushrooms is with the garlic, the Worcestershire sauce, white cooking wine, and more. But if you want to mix things up, here are a few fun options:
What Spices to Add to Mushrooms?
- Garlic: Of course there is the trusted garlic spice. What can’t garlic go with? So, you can keep your sautéing simple and sauté your mushrooms with a little garlic, butter, and oil. Or, you can use garlic paired with other spices.
- Thyme, Rosemay, and Of Course Garlic: Thyme, rosemary, and garlic are a trusted combination and pair nicely with mushrooms. Just think about spaghetti sauces with mushrooms and the typical spices in the sauce, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. So, it’s not really a big reach to have a side dish of mushrooms sautéed in these spices, giving your mushrooms a little Italian flare.
- Ginger: Use a little ginger paired with one or two other spices of choice to bring a little Asian taste into your sautéed mushroom dish.
Rosemary, thyme, garlic, and ginger are just a starting off point of ideas. Feel free to experiment with some of your favorites and create your own flavored infused sautéed mushrooms.
