Garlic Butter Mushrooms

  • Author: The Cooking Jar
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 1x


These pan-seared garlic butter mushrooms are smothered in a silky garlic butter sauce with fresh parsley for restaurant-quality flavors.


Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 16 oz. fresh white/baby bella mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and stir to coat.
  2. Spread the mushrooms in an even layer and let them sear without stirring for about 4-5 minutes. Flip them over and sear them on the other side for another 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and do a quick stir. Push aside some mushrooms to make some space, then melt butter and saute garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Toss to coat mushrooms in the garlic butter sauce and simmer for another 3-4 minutes until well combined and the sauce has reduced a little.
  5. Do a taste test and adjust seasonings if needed.
  6. Add in parsley, toss to coat and dish and serve hot.
  7. Enjoy!


  • Add more herbs – Add some fresh or dried thyme which goes perfectly with mushrooms.
  • White wine – Add a splash of dry white wine after sauteing the mushrooms to deglaze the pan and add some flavor.
  • Add more flavor – Saute some yellow onions in the butter with the garlic or add a dash of Worcestershire sauce for some umami.
  • Make it creamy – Add a splash of heavy cream and some Parmesan cheese for a creamy garlic butter sauce instead.
