How To Make Perfectly Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms

These shiitake mushrooms are bursting with taste and are ready in less than 10 minutes. Prepare the fresh components in the following way: chop the fresh garlic, slice the shallots and chiffonade the fresh parsley leaves while finely dicing the stems – It’s important to cook with the stems of herbs because it holds lots of flavor! Wash and thinly slice the mushrooms, dry with a paper towel to absorb any extra moisture.

To cook, begin by setting a pan on high heat. Add a splash of olive oil and allow the oil to get hot. When ready, add the garlic, shallots, parsley stems and mushrooms to the pan and cook on high. Stir to keep from the ingredients from burning and then season with sea salt and pepper. When the mushrooms and shallots turn golden brown, add the dried thyme, the chiffonade-cut parsley and red wine vinegar. Stir one last time to mix and then remove off heat.
