Sautéed Soy Sauce Mushrooms

A must-have side dish, these Sautéed Soy Sauce Mushrooms have a blend of sweet, salty, and teriyaki flavors. They are not only very delicious, but also loaded with health-boosting vitamins and minerals.

Serves: 3
Prep Time: 5 minutes – Cooking Time: 15 minutes – Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 8 oz. any mushroom type, sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 scallion, diced
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 3/4 tsp mirin (or 1 - 2 tsp sugar/substitute)
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 tsp. oil


Step 1
Warm a pan over medium-high heat with oil. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Spread the mushrooms out in the pan to help boil off excess water. Fry the mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until they are cooked through. 

Step 2
Lower the heat to medium and add the garlic and scallions with a touch more oil. Fry until fragrant and sizzling.

Step 3
Add soy sauce and mirin, tossing them with the ingredients thoroughly. Allow some of the alcohol to boil off before removing from the heat and serving.


  • Mushrooms to use: Most common mushroom varieties work well, although the cooking times may vary. Examples include cremini mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, and king oysters. 
  • If the mushrooms release too much water, raise the heat to boil off the liquid.
  • It is recommended to brush mushrooms clean rather than washing them. However, if you do wash them, be sure to gently dry them before cooking.
  • Keep in mind that many mushrooms tend to shrink and shrivel during cooking.
