"This is an easy side dish for those of us who love mushrooms and moderately spicy food. I have no idea where the name for this comes from, but that's the title as I found it."

  • Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the mushrooms and gently toss to coat with butter.
  • Add the garlic and sauté mushrooms and garlic for 1 minute.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce mixture and gently stir to coat mushrooms.
  • Raise heat to medium-high, cover, and stir every few minutes until the butter separates from the sauce and the mushrooms are coated with a heavy caramel-like glaze.

  • Discard remaining sauce and serve immediately.

    Delicious! Even to a mushroom-hater! I loved the name so I had to try the recipe. I had 16 oz of mushrooms, half regular & half baby bellos so I reduced the amount of Worcestershire to about 3/4 cup but didn't reduce anything else. I love that these are like, mushrooms in disguise. LOL They have great savory flavor with just the right amount of kick from the cayenne & hot sauce. I'll be making them again, as the whole family loved them. Thanks for posting, Two Socks! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :) http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

    Had these last night over grilled flank steak. The zip really complimented the meat. I also halved the recipe, I wish I had not. I'll be making these again.
