Creamy Garlic Mushrooms

If you are following us on Instagram, you know that during COVID and quarantining we have made Steak Saturday a weekly tradition. Steak Saturdays have been our way to fancy up the weekend a bit even though we are mostly staying indoors. We love the pairing of steak with a side of sauteed mushrooms and wanted to see if we could update this classic side dish. We have added an ingredient to this dish that may be new to you, Garlic Sauce. Garlic Sauce is a Lebanese spread that is typically made by blending garlic, oil, and salt. You can easily make this on your own, but we love a good shortcut and bought some at our favorite Middle Eastern Market. Trader Joe’s also sells their version in the refrigerated prepared food section alongside the hummus and other dips. Tuck’s mom is so obsessed with this sauce that she is known to eat it with a spoon!

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms
Makes:6-8 side servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 tbs butter
  • 4 cups cremini mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup Garlic Sauce (we bought ours at a local Middle Eastern market, but there is similar here)
  • 1 tbs miso paste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 tbs diced chives


  1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Once it is nice and bubbly, add the mushrooms. Sauté for 10 minutes until the mushrooms have reduced and are tender.
  2. Add in the garlic sauce and miso paste. Stir until both are fully incorporated into the mushrooms. You will notice that the mushrooms get creamy in texture.
  3. Add the salt and pepper and remove the mushrooms from the heat. Top with the chives and serve warm.
