About this recipe: Give the usual mutter- mushroom curries a break. Here's a nice mushroom snack, I love it as a topping for toast.
Dried oregano is a delicious addition to savoury dishes, but don't go wild just because you love the taste. Using too much oregano can impart a bitter flavour, so best to stay on the conservative side when using it in your cooking.
i HAVE to give this five stars...it's MY recipe! however, reading all the reviews (thank you)' i felt compelled to write and say "yes, thirty minutes IS too long!" my mom-in-law got confused on the cooking time! 15 minutes is plenty. you can also add a little dry wine (red or white)instead of balsamic vinegar, and throw in a chopped shallot or two just for fun. thank you for all the wonderful reviews and ratings! good eating! -pat - 11 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Since we eat sauteed mushrooms frequently, both in restaurants and those I prepare at home, maybe that explains why we didn't think these were anything special. I usually saute mine in butter, Worcestershire sauce, Lawry's seasoning salt and pepper--so I thought the balsamic vinegar and oregano used in this recipe would give them a different flavor twist. In the final analysis, however, hubby and I both agree that these were just....mushrooms. - 01 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Me and my wife ate an entire batch!!! I did substitute the oregano for thyme and I cut down the cook time by about 10 minutes finally I deglazed the pan with red wine when the shrooms were done cooking. This is a very tasty recipe and goes great with steak - 10 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
