How To Cook Maitake Mushrooms

Sauteed Maitake Mushrooms (4 Servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • 8 ounces of maitake mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil (standard, not toasted)
  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons of tamari or soy sauce
  • ⅛ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon of Sriracha (or ¼ teaspoon of rice vinegar)

For the garnish:

  • chopped chives or sliced green onions (optional)


  • Clean the mushrooms by rinsing them and patting them dry. Pull them apart into 3-inch pieces with your fingers. The garlic should be minced.
  • Heat the sesame oil in a nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté for about 2 minutes after adding the mushrooms. Cook for 1 minute on the opposite side after flipping the mushrooms.
  • Cook for 30 seconds, or until the garlic is mellow and aromatic. Stir in the Sriracha, soy sauce, and salt, and simmer for another minute, or until the vegetables are tender. Turn off the heat. Serve with soba noodles or as a side topped with cut chives or green onion tops.
