Helpful hints on making Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions!
- After washing or wiping the mushrooms dry them well with a paper towel.
- Do not burn the melting butter. The key is to stay close by and have everything prepped and ready to go.
- Cook mushrooms over medium high heat. They release a lot of moisture so in order for them to brown properly they must be cooked over fairly high heat and stirred frequently so they do not burn.
- Add the onions when the mushrooms are starting to turn golden brown. The onions should be lightly browned on the edges and translucent. It does not take long and they too should be stirred frequently.
- Add the garlic during the last minute of cooking. Reduce the heat to low and stir frequently. Garlic burns easily and tastes bitter when it burns.
