Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions: The Perfect Side Dish
This easy Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions recipe is a tasty, savory side dish that you can whip up in about 10 minutes. In this recipe, white button mushrooms are sautéed with a bit of olive oil, butter, onion, thyme, Worcestershire, and soy sauce to make a well-seasoned, palate-pleasing dish.
Mushrooms carry a lot of moisture and in order to cook properly, they have to release their liquid. In this recipe, the moisture is drawn from the mushrooms by applying heat and then evaporated. This cooking technique leaves the mushrooms perfectly browned, slightly reduced in size, and wonderfully tender.
Health Benefits of Mushrooms
Not only do mushrooms taste delicious, they have a myriad of impressive health benefits:
- Mushrooms contain a powerful antioxidant called selenium, which helps to support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues
- They are a great source of B vitamins, fiber, protein and antioxidants
- Mushrooms are very low in calories – for example, six medium white button mushrooms are only 22 calories.

Here are some kitchen tools I suggest using to ensure this recipe turns out perfect every single time:
- Kitchen and Food Scale – If you buy in bulk, a scale makes it so easy to measure the perfect amount of mushrooms to use for this dish. You can also use a kitchen scale to accurately measure the weight of meat, pasta, and flour to use in recipes.
- Frying Pan or Cast Iron Skillet – Either of these pans would work great for this recipe, and as a bonus they are safe to use both on the stovetop and in the oven.

heather (delicious not gorgeous) says
yes!!!! i like my mushrooms aggressively browned, so this sounds delicious. i feel like this would automatically go with a big steak, but forget the steak, all i need are mushrooms (:
Thanks so much Heather! ♡ Haha I know if I had choice between steak and mushrooms, I would go for the mushrooms too! 🙂
I love sautéed mushrooms! These sound so yummy and flavorful!
Hey Deepika! Me too! Thanks so much!! ♡

Oh I absolutely love sauteed mushrooms. I have them in my burgers or on a slice of toast with a bit of cheese. I have never added Worcestershire sauce to it. It really must taste delicious with that addition. I am looking forward to trying out this recipe. Looks delicious ?
I love sautéed mushrooms too! I even eat them on their own sometimes. You should definitely try adding Worcestershire sauce to them! It adds a really great meaty flavor to the mushrooms. I hope you get to try the recipe soon! 🙂

This on top of chicken === SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM TEAM to me!!
Hi GiGi! Oh that does sound yummy! I will have to try that soon!! 🙂
Sauteed mushrooms are my favourite side dish! I’ve never tried it with Worcestershire sauce before but it sounds like a great sauce for mushrooms too. Just bought a big pack of mushrooms so will have a go at it.
Hey Juventia! Worcestershire sauce adds great flavor to sauteed mushrooms. You should definitely try it with the mushrooms you just bought! 😉
I could definitely just eat this as a meal, which is weird, because as a kid the thought would’ve given me nightmares! Funny (and awesome) how much our tastes change!
Hi Nicole! I could definitely eat this as a meal too!! I have always been a mushroom-lover, but that is true how our tastes change with time. When I was a kid I despised the taste of honey (odd I know), and now I have it in my tea every single day! 🙂
Yum!!!! I am picturing this with an aoli sauce and roasted poblano peppers inside a panini (instead of meat). Mushrooms are my favorite!
Mmmm that sounds super yummy, Maria! 🙂 I love mushrooms too! And I think you should definitely make that vegetarian panini sometime! 😉
