  • 2 cups button mushrooms (or baby Bella mushroom)
  • 2 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 50 grams unsalted butter (go ahead use olive oil for butter instead if you prefer healthy)
  • 2 teaspoon ground pepper powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 to 3 teaspoon fresh thyme


  • Scrub out all the dirt from mushrooms carefully and wash them clean.
  • Heat butter in wide pan. Let it brown a bit. Saute minced garlic in butter until the raw smell cooks off. You need to cook garlic until it's fragrant. We want to add layers of flavors to the dish. It starts off with garlic fist. If you do not wait until garlic is browned enough, you would have that extra flavor of garlic. Garlic that is browned well is going to bring out amazing flavor.
  • Once garlic is browned, time for mushrooms to go in. Allow mushrooms to cook for 3-4 minutes on the side so it gets cooked. Mushrooms will release a lot of moisture, you want to cook mushrooms in high heat (please ensure you don't burn mushrooms). Once you see mushroom shrinks and changes it's color a bit, flip them over. Continue to cook on other side as well.
  • Season the dish with salt and ground pepper to taste. Saute well and continue to cook for few more minutes.
  • Finally add chopped fresh thyme leaves and mix well.
  • Remove from heat and serve it hot.
    Sauteed mushrooms goes perfect with your steak. This is a great side dish on your Thanksgiving dinner plate.
