Sauteed Mushrooms/Champignons Sautes Au Beurre (Paleo, Gluten Free)

This very simple mushroom dish is actually a favorite of mine to prepare as a side item to serve with a main dish or as part of a bigger recipe like coq au vin or boeuf bourguignon.

The sauteed mushrooms should be lightly browned and not lose their liquid when cooking. To do this, they must be patted dry, the butter needs to be very hot and DO NOT CROWD THE MUSHROOMS. This means you may have do this in multiple batches but I assure you, it is worth the effort.

Find yourself some fresh mushrooms, heat the butter (or olive oil if you are dairy-free) until it is quite hot then put your mushrooms in, taking care to leave space between them so they are not touching.

don't crowd the mushrooms

Toss and shake your pan for 4-5 minutes. When they have browned lightly, remove from heat.

As an optional step, you can return them all to the pan and add some green onions to toss around and give them extra flavor. I usually don’t add any salt and pepper but this is also up to taste.
