Marinated Mushroom Saute

by lydia on September 14, 2010

Nutritionally, mushrooms pack a decent punch, not to mention amazing flavor. Just a 3 ounce serving of mushrooms contains a fair amount of folate, niacin and phosphorous. Potassium is plentious in these wonderful fungi as well, just over 3 ounces benefits you with around 318 mg. Throughout the ages mushrooms have been valued for their medicinal value, in many parts of the world, with Chinese medicine being a most familiar nation known to benefit from their intrinsic qualities.

I personally have a fond affection for mushrooms prepared in a variety of ways. But serving them up beside a good steak is one of my favorites. Mushrooms and steak are a match made in heaven.  These mushrooms will bring heaven to earth in your mouth! So flavorful, buttery and tender. I am sure you will love them!!

Marinated Mushroom Saute: Recipe

1 pound small mushrooms, any kind you like, wiped clean, stems trimmed and cut in half or if you prefer, sliced

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 

1/4 cup of butter

2 cloves garlic

fresh parsley

fresh oregano

balsamic vinegar


Saute pan or cast iron skillet


In a small glass dish with the mushrooms add about 1/4 cup of olive oil, 2 minced cloves of garlic, a handful of chopped fresh oregano and parsley combined, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Let sit for 30 minutes minimum, and up to overnight. Bring the mushrooms to room temperature before cooking.

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add the butter until it melts. Scoop the mushrooms out of the marinade and add them to the skillet. Cook low and slow until mushrooms are tender. Add the marinade at the end of the cooking time, turn the heat up a bit to allow the vinegar to kind of caramelize. Serve these alongside your next steak dinner, you will not be disappointed!


Active time – 5 minutes

Total time – 25 minutes (up to 24 hours including marinade time)

These mushrooms look so tasty, I don’t know if I could wait for it to marinate!

I’ll have to try this the next time I find a huge bag of mushrooms in the seconds area at the produce place. I bet the balsamic vinegar really brings the flavors together.

When I read the recipe I thought – why the olive oil?? LOL I didn’t realize it was a marinade at first – oh this would be a great hit around here. Thanks for linking to the hearth’nsoul blog hop!

I’d really like to know what’s on the plate next to the mushrooms. It looks pretty good as well!

Thank you for linking this with Hearth and Soul! I’ve been picking all of the wild mushrooms I can get my hands on before the weather turns, so I’m happy to a mushroom recipe and some info about their nutrition. All I know is that they taste fab!
