Ask the Chef – Tips & TricksChoose the Right Mushrooms: Use fresh mushrooms for this recipe, and choose a type of mushroom that you like. Cremini, white button, or shiitake mushrooms are great options.
Clean Mushrooms Properly: To clean the mushrooms, use a damp paper towel or a mushroom brush to gently wipe away any dirt or debris. Do not soak mushrooms in water, as they will absorb the liquid and become soggy when cooked.
Slice Mushrooms Evenly: Slice the mushrooms thinly and evenly so that they cook at the same rate.
Use a Large Skillet: Use a large skillet or pan, so that there is enough space for the mushrooms to cook and not to overcrowd. Overcrowding the pan will cause the mushrooms to release moisture, resulting in boiled or steamed mushrooms instead of sauteed.
Sauté Over Medium Heat: Sauté the mushrooms over medium heat. This allows the mushrooms to cook slowly and evenly. Cooking them on high heat might cause them to burn quickly or become tough.
Season at the Right Time: Add salt and pepper to the mushrooms once they have released some of their moisture. Adding salt too early will cause the mushrooms to release more liquid and become overly softened or slimy.
Don’t Overcook: Do not overcook the mushrooms, as it will cause them to become soft and mushy. Cook the mushrooms until they are slightly browned and tender but still holding their shape.
Garnish with Chopped Parsley: For an extra pop of color and flavor, garnish the finished mushrooms with chopped parsley before serving. This is optional but adds a fresh herby taste to the dish.
