- Garlic – fresh minced garlic is the best for this recipe as it gives a more intense flavor.
How To Make Sauteed Mushrooms

Tips for Making the Best Caramelized Mushrooms
- Do not overcrowd the pan so the mushrooms have enough space to caramelize and not simmer.
- Use soy sauce to help the mushrooms get that rich and brown crust.
- Stir from time to time to allow the fried mushrooms to caramelize perfectly.
- Don’t soak the mushrooms in water because they tend to soak up liquids and become super soggy when cooked. Clean the mushrooms using a damp paper towel or a mushroom brush.
In my opinion, this recipe is perfect as it is, but you can make it according to your taste by adding some other ingredients. Here are some great ideas:
