shrooms (2) I was kinda thrilled to find these mushrooms at the market the other day.

They are cultivated in Japan and I am eagerly waiting to see portabellos in the near future.

With these and some eringi, I made a mushroom sauce, sauteeing the shrooms in some olive oil then drizzling some tonkatsu sauce. At the end I added a nub of butter.

shrooms I served this over a hamburger patty and a side of sweet potato mash for dinner the other night.

shrooms (3) With the leftover hamburger patties and mushroom sauce, I made "loco moco" for breakfast the other day.

No gravy but this version was pretty delicious.

I love mushrooms, my husband and I often saute them with squash and a little butter, delicious!

Oooh...portabellos. Odd that we don't have them here but what I wish we could get were fresh shiitake mushrooms.

K and S said...

that sounds delicious Cajunlicious, I think butter makes things better :)

weird how I can eat fresh shiitake but not dried Rowena :0

Take care you two.

Love mushrooms Kat! Hopefully you'll get your portobellos, but there are so many varieties where you're at already.

Oh, I think mushrooms make almost everything better! Well, maybe not cookies....

K and S said...
