Sautéed Mushrooms with Only Three Ingredients

Sautéed mushrooms are absolutely delicious and super versatile. You can serve them over grilled steak, roasted chicken or by themselves as a side dish. You could also add them to pasta, omelettes, or stir them into creamy risotto. One great way to elevate this dish is by throwing them in a hot pan with clarified garlic butter!

Clarified Butter for High Heat Cooking

One downside of cooking with traditional butter is its extremely low smoke point (250°F), which makes it unsuitable for high-heat cooking like sautéed or stir-fry vegetables. Clarified butter, on the other hand, has a high smoke point of ~485°F. This makes it a perfect lactose-free alternative with the same delicious buttery taste!

In this easy recipe, we simply sautéed the mushrooms with clarified garlic butter and vegetable bouillon seasoning until they were nice and caramelized. That’s it! Only 3 ingredients are needed for this savory dish.

What Kind of Mushrooms Can I Use?

Any kind you like! White, brown, baby bella, cremini, or portobello would all work with this recipe. You can also use shiitake mushrooms for an umami twist, or oyster mushrooms for a delicate and savory flavor.

Can you freeze mushrooms?

Yes! You can freeze mushrooms after cooking. Allow them to cool completely before transferring to a freezer safe bag or container. Use a bag that’s large enough to lay the mushrooms on a single flat row. This will help them freeze in an even layer which makes for easier thawing when you’re ready to use them. If you don’t have a bag large enough, you can lay them out on a baking sheet and freeze them flat, then add to a container after they are completely frozen.
