Sometimes there is just not enough items in the fridge except white button mushrooms! I have always had sautéed mushrooms on burgers, but have never cooked them myself. I googled some recipes and took the best pieces from each to create this side dish!
1 package of white button mushrooms, sliced medium
1 small onion, diced
1/2 small shallot, diced
3 small cloves of garlic (or 2 large), diced and smashed
1/2 tbs of butter
1 tbs of olive oil
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs chicken broth
pinch of salt
freshly cracked pepper
Note: I would begin using a damp cloth or a vegetable brush to wash the mushrooms. I don't really recommend washing them under water as the moisture quickly goes into the mushrooms and will make them soggy!
Directions: Add the butter to the pan. Once warm, add the onions, garlic and shallot. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté until translucent.
Once translucent, add olive oil and the mushrooms. Quickly add the soy sauce and toss. Let the mushrooms sit for about 5-6 minutes unstirred so the caramelization process can begin. Once soft, add the broth on high heat to cook. Once the broth has been soaked up by the mushrooms, turn down the heat, add a little salt and pepper (if desired) and cook until desired caramelization (really your preference) Once done, throw in the fresh thyme. Serve immediately (or over polenta, couscous, rice, etc...)
