There is no side dish quite like Garlic Mushrooms and Onions. I make them at least once a week because they are so versatile.
Garlic Mushrooms and Onions are a tasty side dish for any meal. Mushrooms and onions sauteed with fresh garlic and maitre d’hotel butter.
Do you have one or two side dishes that will accompany practically any meal? I might have closer to 20, but this one is always a favorite.
While I do think it pairs best with beef, pork and chicken, it can also be served with fish or seafood. Place your protein over a bed of sauteed mushrooms and onions or put on the side, either way, they are delicious!
Using a variety of mushrooms and onions will drastically change the flavor profile, lending to a large array of dishes. Portabellas are rich and flavorful, criminis a milder portabella flavor. Oyster and chanterelle have a mild flavor and unique textures, while porcino and shiitakes pack a punch.
Onions range from sweet to spicy. You can also use shallots or pearl onions. Don’t just use one type of onion and mushroom, use a variety!
