Mushrooms: Clean with a brush or damp kitchen towel. Cut it in half. If the mushrooms are small, then you can also keep them whole

Garlic: Fresh minced garlic. Garlic powder will not give the same flavor in this recipe but if that’s what you have you can use it.

How to make Garlic Butter Mushrooms

Use a large skillet that can hold all the mushrooms without crowding them. If the pan is crowded, the mushrooms would start steaming instead of caramelizing.

Tossing mushrooms in a skillet with some butterPin

Make sure the pan is hot while adding the mushrooms. Once added let it cook undisturbed for around 4-5 minutes. Then flip or toss and cook until it’s nicely browned. By now the mushrooms would have reduced almost to half of the total quantity.

Once the mushrooms are done, make a little space in the middle and add minced garlic. Garlic once added tends to stick to the bottom of the pan, so while the mushrooms are cooked garlic might burn. Same with the herbs.

Along with garlic and herbs, season the mushrooms with salt and pepper. As mushrooms once cooked shrink a lot, it’s a good idea to add salt towards the end.

After the garlic is sauteed, add wine and let it cook until it has reduced completely. Toss everything well and we are done!!!!

Storing Leftovers

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Just reheat in a skillet to make the mushrooms crispy again.
