These easy and delicious mushrooms are a quick appetizer or side dish perfect with beef, chicken, pork and pasta!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes
Servings 2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms cleaned and sliced ⅓ to ½ inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce low sodium
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or chopped fresh parsley optional garnish


  • Clean mushrooms by using a paper towel dampened with water to gently remove dirt (or use a mushroom brush). Slice into ⅓ to ½ inch slices.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Once butter has melted, add mushrooms, soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Using a wooden spoon, gently stir to coat mushrooms as evenly as possible. Using the spoon, arrange in a single layer.
  • Allow the mushrooms to cook (without stirring) for approximately 5 to 6 minutes, allowing them to brown.
  • Stir to flip the mushrooms and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes (without stirring), or until well browned and tender.
  • Sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme or parsley when serving, if desired.


  • Cremini (baby bella) mushrooms can be substituted for white.
  • Regular soy sauce can be substituted for low sodium, but be mindful of adding additional salt.
  • Garlic salt can be substituted for garlic powder and salt, if desired.
  • Feel free to adjust seasonings to your personal taste.
