Oyster Mushroom Recipe

Oyster mushrooms are one of my favorite types of mushrooms to grow and cook with. Their delicate flavor and meaty texture make them the perfect ingredient for a variety of dishes. From stir-fries to soups, oyster mushrooms can add a wonderful depth of flavor to any meal. In this article, I’ll share a delicious oyster mushroom recipe that I’ve perfected over the years.


  • 1 pound of fresh oyster mushrooms
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped green onions for garnish


  1. Start by cleaning the oyster mushrooms. I like to gently wipe them with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt or debris without soaking them in water, which can make them soggy.
  2. Once cleaned, slice the oyster mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. I prefer to keep them slightly larger as they shrink when cooked.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a minute until fragrant.
  4. Next, add the sliced oyster mushrooms to the skillet. Cook them for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they become golden brown and caramelized.
  5. Once the mushrooms are cooked to perfection, drizzle the soy sauce and sesame oil over them. Toss to coat evenly.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Transfer the cooked oyster mushrooms to a serving dish and garnish with chopped green onions for a pop of color and freshness.

This oyster mushroom recipe is a true crowd-pleaser. The umami flavor from the mushrooms combined with the savory garlic and soy sauce makes for a mouthwatering dish that’s both comforting and satisfying.
