How Long to Cook Mushrooms
How long to cook mushrooms is more of an art than a science. Depending on your cooking method, amount, and the type of mushroom you are cooking, it will take approximately 10-20 minutes to cook sliced mushrooms. It is important to note that there are many different varieties of mushrooms and just as many ways to cook them. One of the most popular ways to prepare mushrooms is to sautee them. Portobello, button, and cremini mushrooms are widely available and delicious when sautéed. To do this, you'll want to clean and slice them, then add them to a pan with oil, being careful not to crowd the pan. The mushrooms will shrink as moisture cooks out of them, and they become golden brown in color. The mushrooms should become soft and caramelized with a delicious taste and texture. Mushrooms can also be cooked in the oven at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.
