This Garlic Mushrooms Recipe is a quick and easy side dish that’s ready in 15 minutes or less! Perfect for an easy (and romantic) side dish.
Mushrooms are great because they’re pretty affordable and make a great and easy side dish for just about any cut of meat.
I often pick up a big package of mushrooms at Costco and will have enough to make two or three batches of these tasty, buttery mushrooms.
How To Make Garlic Mushrooms
- Start by cleaning your mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt or debris. Trim the ends of the stems if desired.
- Heat butter in a large skillet until melted, then toss in some diced onion and sauté until softened.
- Add in the mushrooms and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until they soften.
- Deglaze the pan with some white wine (or chicken broth), scraping any brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
- Toss in the garlic and parsley and season with salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
What Type Of Mushrooms To Use?
For this recipe you can use either white button mushrooms or Cremini mushrooms. Cremini mushrooms are pictured above and are sometimes referred to as baby bellas.
What Type of Wine To Use?
I am not a wine drinker, but I always have a good quality dry white wine, such as Pinot Gris, Chardonnay or Sauv Blanc on hand to add the flavor of sauces when cooking. You could also use a white cooking wine, or if you prefer to not use wine, you could also use a few splashes of chicken or vegetable broth in it’s place.
When you’re cooking the mushrooms you’ll notice that at first they’ll start to absorb the butter like little sponges. Once the mushrooms begin to cook, they’ll become softer and once again release their juices and you’ll be left with buttery mushrooms.
What To Serve With Garlic Mushrooms:
These mushrooms would make a great side dish with just about anything, but here are a few of my favorites (I’m thinking romantic Valentine’s Dinner at home?).
- Beef Tenderloin
- Mashed Potato Gnocchi
- Oven Baked Chicken Breasts
- Broiled Lobster Tails
- Parmesan Roasted Green Beans
