These delectable garlic mushrooms are served in butter and herb sauce, just like you’d get at a steakhouse! The perfect 10 minute side dish that goes with almost any meal.
Steakhouse mushrooms are one of my favorite things to order when I go out to eat. No need to spend $10 on sauteed mushrooms at a restaurant when you can make them at home for a fraction of the cost!
Let’s talk about steakhouse food. Sure, I love a good steak every now again, but what I look forward to the most are the side dishes. Creamed spinach, sweet potato casserole, and those melt-in-your mouth garlic mushrooms. I’m bringing the steakhouse flavors to your home kitchen with these incredibly easy sauteed garlic butter mushrooms.
How to make garlic mushrooms
For this recipe, you’ll need mushrooms, butter, garlic, thyme, parsley, salt and pepper. That’s it!! I went with the standard white button mushrooms here, but cremini mushrooms are also great or you could go a little fancier and use a wild mushroom blend.
Look for mushrooms that are roughly the same size so that they’ll all cook in the same amount of time. The mushrooms are sauteed with a generous amount of butter, minced garlic, salt, pepper and some fresh thyme.
I just throw a whole sprig of thyme leaves into this dish and the leaves will drop off the stem during the cooking process. Just be sure to remove the stem before you serve! The final touch is a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
It probably goes without saying that these garlic mushrooms are perfect perfect alongside a steak, but they also make a great accompaniment to chicken and pork chops. If you’re a mushroom lover, you need these garlic mushrooms in your life!
