Simple Sautéed Black Oyster Mushrooms

This quick and easy recipe will give you delicious Black Oyster mushrooms to enjoy as a side dish, add to pasta or scrambled eggs, serve with grilled meat…use your imagination!

Servings: 2-3


  • 8 ounces Black Oyster mushrooms
  • 1+ T olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 springs of fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon butter or ghee
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Trim off the very end of the mushroom stems. You can leave mushrooms whole, cut them length-wise, or slice the stems into several little medallions and keep the cap whole. Whatever you choose, it’s best to work with similarly sized pieces of mushrooms so they cook evenly.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then add the mushrooms, cooking 3-5 minutes without stirring until they begin to brown.
  • Continue to sautee, stirring occasionally, for another 3-5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are very well browned.
  • Add the butter/ghee, garlic, and thyme and reduce heat to low. Cook about 5 minutes more, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are dark brown and crisped to your liking.
  • Remove thyme sprigs, season with S+P to taste, and enjoy!
