A rustic and beautiful side dish, these easy pan-fried mushrooms taste meaty and garlicky, yet delicate and fresh.
1 pound Oyster mushrooms, cleaned and cut into evenly sized pieces
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
1. Place butter and olive oil in a heavy skillet set over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, add the mushrooms to the skillet in one single layer.
2. Cook the mushrooms for 2 minutes, or until golden. Flip over the mushrooms and add the smashed garlic to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low; season with salt and pepper and continue to cook the mushrooms until they start to brown, spooning the butter over the mushrooms as they cook.
3. Remove from heat. Add more salt and pepper, as needed, and serve.
