You know you have a pretty darn good marriage when the topic of mushrooms is one of the only things you argue about. Ok, we don't really argue, but we cannot come to any sort of understanding about how the other feels about this food. I adore mushrooms. I think they are absolutely delicious, and they complement (and are complemented by) many foods. According to my husband, they are disgusting and mushy and there is never an appropriate time or place or situation to put a mushroom into his mouth. I find it sad that he is unable to appreciate this food!
I was looking for a side dish to serve with steak and potatoes, and this recipe turned out great! And since I have a husband who wouldn't gaze in the general direction of the mushrooms while I was making them, I had them all to myself! Yes, I ate the whole batch.
Slice 8 oz. of fresh mushrooms, or do what I did and buy them pre-sliced.
Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
Add the mushrooms; cook and stir until they become softened (about 5 minutes).
Stir in 2 large cloves of minced garlic and continue to cook/stir for about a minute.
Add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and cook until the liquid has evaporated (about 4 minutes).
Serve with steak or chicken or pork, or even salmon. They are DELICIOUS! Don't listen to my husband (on this topic, anyway).
