Short on time, but still want to enhance your dish with a savory topping? This sauteed mushrooms recipe creates a savory sauce in just a few minutes of cooking time. It’s served best over beef (like filet mignon) or chicken, but also makes a great addition to salads and veggie bowls.

Mushrooms are loaded with helpful bacteria, which can help your digestive system’s microbiome to function and improve digestion. All mushrooms also have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help you feel stronger and healthier.

Cremini mushrooms are smaller and have a great flavor profile for this recipe, but you can use white button or shiitake mushrooms if you prefer. Simply prep the mushrooms, heat up a pan, and sauté the ingredients together. Feel free to play with the balsamic vinegar in this recipe to your liking. This will have your mouth watering, and leave your kitchen smelling amazing!

This mushrooms topping pairs well as an ideal topping for our Peppercorn-Crusted Filet Mignon and adds a tangy, yet savory flavor.
