Sauteed Mushrooms Recipe

These are so easy and tasty! Serve sauteed mushrooms as a side dish, appetizer, over steak, on a burger (yum!), in gravy - so versatile!

Love mushrooms? Or maybe you have a package of mushrooms that needs rescuing? That’s how I came up with this recipe – my mushrooms were looking bleak and I didn’t want to see them go to waste. These sauteed mushrooms are easy, juicy, and really, really good!

You can serve these sauteed mushrooms over pasta, steak, mashed potatoes, in burger (yum!), in gravy, or as a very tasty appetizer. They’re so versatile! They are simple enough for everyday, but can hold their own as a holiday side dish. To be honest, we ate up most of them right out of the pan. Our mushroom loving friends will really enjoy this recipe :).

Ingredients for Sauteed Mushrooms:

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp light olive oil
1 1/2 lbs (24 oz) baby bella (cremini) mushrooms
garlic salt, to taste (or use salt and garlic powder)
black pepper, freshly ground
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice form 1 small or 1/2 large lemon
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

These are so easy and tasty! Serve sauteed mushrooms as a side dish, appetizer, over steak, on a burger (yum!), in gravy - so versatile!

How to Make Sauteed Mushrooms:

1. Rinse and quickly pat dry mushrooms (go on and rinse them, you have my permission :)). Cut off stems to be parallel with the base of the mushroom (important for sautéing ease).

2. In a large heavy pan over medium heat, add 2 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp oil. Once oil is hot, add mushrooms in a single layer, cut-side-down (cook in batches if your pan is smaller). Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Sautee until bottoms are browned (5 min), then flip over, season again with garlic salt and pepper and sautee until browned on the second side (5 min).

3. Squeeze in 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp parsley. Stir mushrooms and cook another 1-2 min, adding more seasoning to taste. Remove from heat and serve.

    I have made this about 6 times. Used all kinds of mushrooms. Button, baby bella and the like. DELICIOUS! Add the lemon juice at the end or not and serve, Great with or without. Literally 10 minutes to make! If I could give it more stars would. Reply

    They look delicious! What would you eat them with? I always have trouble finding what condiment to have with things apart from pasta and rice…
    And ideas?

      Hi Clara, I serve these on the side like a vegetable. They are really good paired with mashed potatoes and maybe roasted asparagus, or a green salad 🙂 Reply

    Little caveat for the mushrooms, used small Shiitake, still cut the stems off at the cap, used lime juice instead of lemon juice (lemon juice is very hard to get here!), and spring onion for the parsley. I will post a photo on fb tomorrow, not as bright as yours but wow are they good! Well received by the Thai family, once again, thank you for the great recipe, Natasha 🙂 Reply

    I love mushrooms and love this recipe. As other people have said, I never thought that lemon juice would go so well with mushrooms. Absolutely amazing! Reply

    If you love mushrooms you have got to try these! I never would have thought lemon would be good on them but I was wrong. I paired this side dish with seared lamb chops and there was nothing left over 😊. Thanks for sharing your recipes! Reply

    Thanks for this recipe, I love it! I actually had the same “problem” as you described. I had a package of mushrooms in the fridge and didn’t want to wait before they go to waste, so I googled for some easy recipe and here we are! 🙂 Reply

      Hi Ana, they didn’t seem greasy to me. I would describe them as juicy. I hope you enjoy them! 🙂 Reply

    I am one of those mushroom loving friends! These mushrooms look gorgeous and I agree about eating them out of the pan. That is a problem I have quite often when I cook bite sized mushrooms – they never seem to make it to my plate! Reply
