Prepare shiitakes


Clean shiitake mushrooms using a damp sponge or place them in a colander and rinse under cold water. Remove the stems and slice them evenly.

Melt the butter

Place a 10 or 12-inch skillet on the stove over medium-high heat and warm the butter until melted.



Transfer the sliced shiitake mushroom to the skillet and saute, stirring constantly, until the mushrooms soften fully and begin to caramelize (6-7 minutes).


Sautee the garlic

Add the minced garlic to the shiitake mushroom slices and saute the mixture for another 30 seconds.



Sprinkle the shiitakes with salt and pepper. Then, transfer them to a plate and garnish them with chopped parsley, if preferred.
