SAUTÉED mushrooms, especially when served with a chicken or beef dish, have always been a favorite of mine. I’ve added an Asian twist to these mushrooms, and they’re perfect to accompany any main course.
1. Combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Set aside.
2. Lightly coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add the oil and set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 10 minutes or until they are just softened and browned and most of liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally. Add the sauce and simmer for 1 minute or until the sauce is heated through and everything is slightly thickened.
3. Garnish with parsley or cilantro and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
