Remember those delicious mushrooms you get at your favorite steakhouse? You can easily make them at home in a fraction of the time! These Steakhouse Sauteed Mushrooms are an easy and delicious way to turn an ordinary meal into a gourmet meal with just a few ingredients. Steakhouse Sauteed Mushrooms are a delicious and versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a side dish or as a topping on a variety of meals. They are easy to prepare and can be made with a variety of different types of mushrooms. 

One of the best things about sauteed mushrooms is that they are packed with flavor. Mushrooms are known for their umami flavor. Umami is a savory taste that is often described as “meaty” or “savory.” It is one of the five basic tastes, along with sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. Umami is caused by the presence of certain amino acids and nucleotides, such as glutamic acid and ribonucleotides, in foods.

Some common foods that are high in umami include meats, fish, mushrooms, and aged cheeses.  The natural earthy and meaty taste of mushrooms is enhanced when they are sauteed in butter or oil, one of the key ingredients in these steakhouse sauteed mushrooms. This also helps to bring out the natural oils and juices of the mushrooms, making them even more flavorful. 

In addition to being delicious, Steakhouse sauteed mushrooms are also quite healthy. Mushrooms are a low-calorie, low-fat food that is high in nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin D, which is important for bone health, and they also contain antioxidants that can help to boost the immune system. Using only one tablespoon of butter in this recipe makes this a healthy recipe you can use with a variety of foods, not just steak. Plus, you can easily substitute the butter with olive oil to make it healthier.

When it comes to preparing Steakhouse sauteed mushrooms, the key is to use high-quality mushrooms and sauté them over medium-high heat. This will help to prevent them from becoming too soggy or mushy. It’s also important to use a non-stick pan or a well-seasoned cast iron skillet to prevent sticking.

An easy-to-make recipe for Steakhouse sauteed mushrooms that can be a delicious topper for beef, chicken, pork, and fish.


  • • 1 Package Mushrooms
  • • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • • 2-3 Cloves of Garlic
  • • 2 Tbsp. Sherry
  • • 1 tsp Herbes de Provence
  • • 2 Tbsp. Milk or Heavy Cream
  • • 2 Tsp. Superfine Flour (Wondra)


Wash and drain the mushrooms.  I purchase whole mushrooms and slice them myself, but you can also purchase pre-sliced mushrooms.

Place the butter in a large saucepan and melt over
medium-low heat.  Peel and slice the garlic cloves, then add to the butter
and sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, turn the heat up to medium, and cover
with a lid.  The mushrooms will start to soften, and the moisture inside
the mushrooms will create its own juice.

Do not let the mushrooms dry out, so add a touch of vegetable stock if necessary.  After they have softened a little, add the sherry and herb de provence, and stir. Continue to sauté for another minute. 

Mix the milk and flour together in a small dish, then stir into the mushrooms.  I know milk might seem like an odd thing to add to mushrooms, but it smooths out the flavor of the garlic and sherry and adds a creaminess to the mushrooms. The mushrooms will thicken quickly, so watch them carefully, stirring every few seconds. Simmer for 1-2 minutes, then remove from the heat and serve immediately.


  • You can use white mushrooms or baby bella mushrooms in this recipe.
  • To make this healthier, use olive oil instead of butter and plain almond milk instead of milk or cream.

What is Herbes De Provence? 

One of the key ingredients in these Steakhouse sauteed mushrooms is Herbes de Provence. Herbes de Provence is a blend of dried herbs commonly used in cooking in the Provence region of southeast France. The blend usually includes thyme, rosemary, savory, and oregano, but can also contain other herbs such as lavender, marjoram, and bay leaves. The mixture I use includes marjoram and a touch of tarragon. 

How to Make This Healthier?

  • Use olive or avocado oil instead of butter
