Sauteed Mushrooms with Caramelized Onion is one of the best and quick ways to cook mushrooms. Sauteed with onion they get a wonderful flavor. Adding some wine too, makes them totally irresistible. The flavors blend so well and sauteing gets them such a beautiful brown color.

The best part is that sauteing takes only few minutes to prepare, and you can have a delicious meal in a very short time. You can find so many ways to serve them with. Serve them for breakfast alongside some fresh salad end eggs, or for lunch and dinner on top of your favorite meat or vegetables. They go so well with pasta or rice too. They even can be served by themselves alongside some fresh crusty bread. Any way you choose to serve them everybody will love these mushrooms. They are totally addictive and people will ask for more.

The best way to clean mushrooms before cooking is to wipe them with a damp towel or a mushroom brush to remove any dirt. You can also rinse them, but have to do that quickly and mushrooms need to be dried immediately. If you let them too much under the water they will soak too much water. Mushrooms are like little sponges, so if you want your sauteing to get nice and brown make sure you dry them quick after rinsing.

If you are planning to saute more mushrooms use a bigger skillet so the mushrooms have space to saute either wise they will get too much water and steam.

Try it out, these sauteed mushrooms with caramelized onion are such a comforting dish, you will love it, I am sure of that.

    Dear Ella,

    I love sauteed mushrooms with olive oil, butter, salt and pepper but not onions in it though.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Just try it once with onions, you might change your mind:)

  13. Tamiris Author says:

    Dear Ella, do you think it would work to make this recipe with shitake and shimeji? Those oriental mushrooms?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I am sure it would work well, you can definitely try with a mix of mushrooms, slice them if too big and I am sure they are going to be delicious.

  14. Sadiyah Author says:

    Hey Ella,

    This recipe looks fab and I will definately give it a try for a meal this Ramadan. I was wondering is there any substitute for the wine that you could suggest as I do not have Alcohol.

    Thank you!

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I am glad you want to give this recipe a try. If you don't have wine.. simply don't use, the recipe will be as good without, don't really need a substitute.

  15. Kiran Author says:

    Hey there! How will the dish taste with boiled rice? Or naan?

  16. Diane Author says:

    Just made these and my god, they are divine! The only thing I did differently is we don’t have access to fresh button mushrooms (and for some weird reason, they are the only ones my hubby will eat) and so had to use 2 6.5 ounce cans. Absolutely perfect flavor. Thank you for the recipe.

  17. Ricardo Author says:

    Great recipe, never tried with parsley. In America we love to eat burgers with sauté onions and mushrooms. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
