Mushrooms in a Sour Cream Sauce

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Are you a mushroom lover? This recipe of Mushrooms in a Sour Cream Sauce is so easy and makes a flavorful little side dish. I guess it’s fairly common in Russian and Ukrainian cooking. We first tried it at my Mama-in-laws home in Cali and it’s been on our to-do list for about a year (yes, it’s a really long list).

You can use either button, cremini or baby bella mushrooms, or combine different kinds of mushrooms for a little extra flair. I like bellas because they are richer in flavor and meatier. This dish pairs really well with mashed potatoes.

Ingredients for Mushrooms in a Sour Cream:

1 lb mushrooms washed & dried (baby bella’s, cremini or button mushrooms)
1 medium or 2 small onions
3 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp sour cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chopped green onion, optional for garnish

Mushrooms in Sour Cream

How to Make Mushrooms in a Sour Cream in 4 easy steps:

2. In a medium, non-stick pan, saute onions in 1-2 tbsp olive oil for a few minutes or until golden

3. In a separate, large pan, sauté sliced mushrooms in 1-2 Tbsp olive oil until soft.If mushrooms release a lot of juice, drain excess juice; leaving some juices behind. Baby Bella mushrooms don’t seem to get as juicy as buttons or cremini so we didn’t have to drain.

    Do you use 3 tbsp or 3 tsp of sour cream? Under ingredients it says tbsp but towards the end it says to mix in 3 tsp of sour cream. Reply

    My mama always had this on the zakusky table…except she always used a little soy sauce in the preparation instead of salt. Either way, these are delicious. Even my kids loved them. Reply

      Rinse and immediately dry with paper towels. No need to peel. I updated the recipe to include this. Reply

    Wonderful recipe!
    Those would be perfection on some toasted rustic bread, just like my mother’s mushroom cream toast.
