Make this recipe with Ranch or Italian Seasoning
My neice had posted a recipe on Face Book and my daughter wanted to make the mushroom recipe. I looked at the recipe and told her, that’s not the recipe for the crockpot mushrooms.
Time Tested Mushroom Recipe
I had been making savory slow cooker mushrooms for well over 20 years and I quickly rattled off the recipe that I made. Well, she tried the recipe from Face Book and it was not very good. WAY too much butter and seasoning for the amount of mushrooms.
We had a mushroom cook-off
My daughter wasn’t giving up on the new mushroom recipe.
She still wanted to try making the recipe. I told her my recipe and she used a packet of ranch dressing mix powder instead of the italian dressing seasoning I use. Here are some photos of the results.
This batch tasted wonderful. If you like ranch flavoring, this recipe would tickle your taste buds.
Doesn’t this just look like you could pick up the fork and eat?
Here is my recipe that I have been making for years. Savory Slow Cooker Mushrooms. Yum.
Mushroom Serving Suggestions
Serving a large crowd
Leave the mushrooms right in the slow cooker to stay warm. Let the guests serve themselves as an appetizer or side dish.
Serving with a meal
Serve the buttery and savory sauce with the mushrooms over a steak or chicken. What a great sauce to compliment the meat.
I have also used the savory mushrooms added to pasta with cut up chicken, pork, or steak cut up. Very tasty all by itself.
Finding the seasoning packets
Some people may not be familiar with the Italian or ranch seasoning packets. Here is a link to each so you know what I am talking about. You can certainly find them in your local grocery store.
Types of Mushrooms for this Recipe
Today, the photos show that we used Portobello Mushrooms.
Quite often, we use the White Button Mushrooms that are commonly found in the local grocery store. Another Option; the Cremini Mushroom which is a baby Portobello Mushroom

Mushrooms are high in fiber and vitamins. They are low in fat and cholesterol-free too. With the versatility of this little gem, they are popular throughout the world. There are so many great varieties available, I hope that you take the time to explore them all. .
Savory Slow Cooker Mushrooms
- 1 stick butter
- 1 package italian or ranch seasoning
- 24 oz. mushrooms can be sliced or button mushrooms left whole
- Turn the crockpot on low. Add the butter and either the italian or ranch seasoning packet. Add the mushrooms – they can be sliced or kept whole.
- Cook for 3-4 hours on low. Serve and enjoy. Note: the mushrooms will shrink and be about 1/3 of their original size when they are cooked. So if you want a lot, use a very large crockpot and double or triple the recipe.
