Cooking mushrooms may seem simple, but getting them just right can be a challenge. While you technically could eat them raw, when it comes to cooking them on the stovetop, the aim is to achieve the deep, rich, and mahogany color that is characteristic of perfectly cooked steak.

Whether you are making a fast meal of mushrooms on toast or enough for a pizza party, here is how to prepare tender, delectable, and succulent mushrooms every time.

For the Best Mushrooms, Give Them a Good Sear

Cooking mushrooms in a dry pan concentrates and heightens their flavor by prompting a Maillard reaction that releases sweet earthy notes. The best way to achieve this is by searing the mushrooms at high heat, which browns and caramelizes them while driving off any excess liquid moisture.

It's important to hear the mushrooms gently sizzling throughout the cooking process. This indicates that the pan is hot enough to evaporate any liquid and quickly caramelize the mushrooms. If you don't hear sizzling, adjust the heat accordingly.

Key Steps for Stovetop Mushrooms

Start by cleaning your mushrooms and quartering them. Avoid rinsing them, not because it makes them water-logged but because it may inhibit browning due to any excess surface moisture. Instead, use a damp towel to wipe them clean before cutting them into quarters.

When cooking mushrooms on the stovetop, it's essential to use a large, wide skillet, or sauté pan. This increases the surface area, allowing the mushrooms to come into maximum contact with the hot pan while facilitating rapid evaporation of moisture.

To achieve the best mushroom flavor, finish off by adding some butter and sherry, white wine, or your preferred vinegar. Doing so will give the mushrooms a sumptuous sauce that will make them irresistible and worthy of accompanying your main dish.
