Tender Lion's Mane Mushroom Steak
- 2 large Lion's Mane Mushrooms
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt, to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup red wine (optional)


Step 1 - Clean and Slice Mushrooms

Begin by cleaning the Lion's Mane Mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any debris. Do not rinse them under water as they are very absorbent. Slice the mushrooms into 1-inch thick steaks.

Step 2 - Mix Oil, Garlic and Herbs

In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, and thyme.

Step 3 - Sauté Mushroom Steaks

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and once hot, add half of the olive oil mixture. Place the mushroom steaks in the skillet and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they have a nice golden crust. Halfway through cooking, add the remaining olive oil mixture to the skillet.

Step 4 - Deglaze

Deglaze the skillet with red wine, letting it simmer with the mushroom steaks for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Step 5 - Serve

Serve and enjoy!
