Fried Mushrooms: Hard to Eat Just One

Sharing is caring!

It seems when I go out to eat and there is an option of getting fried mushrooms on top of a steak, whenever I get that, rarely is it ever cooked to my preference. I often feel like the mushrooms are under cooked and therefore, have little flavor to add to the steak.

Your Own Private Notes


Sometimes, I mix and match mushrooms and use the Baby Portabella  along with the button mushrooms for an even deeper and richer taste. Experiment with what you like.
