Don't Crowd the Mushrooms!


Last night I needed to saute the mushrooms to put on our steak. Paul reminded me about Julia Childs advice in the movie 'Julie & Julia'. Julie is sauteing mushrooms and has read in Julia Childs cookbook to 'not crowd the mushrooms'. So I decided to give it a whirl and see if it really made a difference. IT DOES! I just let them have some room to breathe and bubble. They browned up so nicely and the flavor - YUM! So my advice to you - Don't Crowd the Mushrooms!

I loved that movie!! If you decide to take on all of Julia's recipes in a year too, let me know... we'll move into your basement for that year! :)

You know the problem with that is that you can't sautee enough at one time to satisfy....
