Pan Fried Oyster Mushrooms


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 ounces oyster mushrooms cut into evenly sized pieces
  • 3 garlic cloves smashed
  • 5 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Spread the mushrooms out in a single layer in the pan. Cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes until they start to brown.
  3. Stir the mushrooms and cook for another 3-5 minutes until browned all over.
  4. Add the ghee/butter, garlic, and thyme to the skillet and reduce the heat to low. Cook for another 5-6 minutes, spooning the ghee/butter over the mushrooms until they are dark brown and slightly crispy.
  5. Remove the thyme springs and season the mushrooms with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
