Baby bella (portobello) mushrooms being sautéed

Sautéed mushrooms (French: Champignons sautés au beurre) is a flavorful dish prepared by sautéing edible mushrooms. It is served as a side dish, used as an ingredient in dishes such as coq au vin and beef bourguignon, in foods such as duxelles, as a topping for steaks and toast, and also as a garnish.

Sautéed mushrooms is a common dish prepared by the sautéing of sliced or whole edible mushrooms. Butter is typically used when sautéing the dish, and margarine and cooking oils such as olive oil and canola oil are also used. Clarified butter can be used, as can a mixture of oil and butter. The dish is typically cooked for over a high heat until the mushrooms are browned, with the oil or butter being very hot in a pan before the mushrooms are added. Overcooking may create an inferior dish by the causing the mushrooms to lose moisture and becoming shriveled.

During the cooking process, the dish can be deglazed with the use of wine, and wine can be used as an ingredient in and of itself without deglazing. The dish can be flavored with lemon juice, various herbs and seasonings, salt and pepper. Additional ingredients such as minced green onions and shallots can also be used. The dish is vegetarian, and may have a meat-like texture.

Sautéed mushrooms is sometimes served as a side dish, and is also used as an ingredient in the preparation of dishes and foods such as beef bourguignon, coq au vin, poulet en cocotte, Poulet Saute Chasseur, soups and stews, sauces, and duxelles, a paste prepared by sautéing mushrooms, onions, shallots, and herbs in butter. Sautéed mushrooms is also used as a topping for cooked steaks and toast, as a side dish meant to specifically accompany steaks, and as a garnish. The dish can serve to add significant flavor to various dishes, in part per the glutamic acid present in the cells of edible mushrooms.

Today’s Menu: Texas Roadhouse

Texas Roadhouse – 8 oz Choice Sirloin

We were going to go to the Texas Roadhouse for my birthday last week but the wait was too long so we went tonight and we got in right away. First time I’ve been to the Texas Roadhouse in many, many years. I just don’t eat out very often due to my Diabetes 2 but I make exceptions for Mom. We both ordered the 6 oz. Sirloin with Sautéed Mushrooms and Baked Potato. The meal came out perfect! I had my Steak Medium Rare and it so delicious and cooked perfect. Mom had hers Medium Well and hers came out the same. Great job by Texas Roadhouse! Back to the Kitchen tomorrow, till tomorrow!

* Just stock photos of the Steak, I don’t like taking pictures in restaurants.
