This recipe was in the Jun 2006 issue of New Zealand's TASTE which I just received from my cookbook swap partner Tansy. How about that -- a recipe for a mushroom dish that I can really enjoy, 'cause they still have a crunch!
Wipe mushrooms clean with a clean, damp cloth, then cut them in half.
Heat a large frying pan over high heat for several minutes, then add the oil & get it really hot.
Drop the butter into the hot oil, where it will quickly sizzle & start to turn golden. BEFORE it turns brown, add the mushrooms!
QUICKLY cook the mushrooms for NO MORE THAN 4 1/2 to 5 minutes, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned. If the mushrooms are cooked too slowly, they will stew, give off liquid & become a soupy mess.
Season with black pepper & salt, then add the coriander & chives.
Immediately spoon the mushrooms into a serving bowl & ENJOY!
