When I was a teen, my parents would sometimes leave me home alone while they went out for the night. It was those special occasions where I'd open up the whole canned ones and start munching them while frying up bottled moose meat with mushrooms and onions. Feast of champions.
Okay someone please... PLEASE explain to me...How is it possible to like these things. They are soo disgusting. Rubbery, slimy, and the actual flavour is just tragic. Even the SMELL is horrible, what is it about these things that people swear on!?!?
You will even attempt to pass it off as some "portobello steak", let me tell you I've never seen a worse mistake than that before.
>>7245716 because you stupid idiot wash them before cutting and cooking. you are supposed too brush them. and don't start a row about food safety - ever seen a pic of the kitchen of a buffet resto?thats sick.
>>7245744 >>7245796 So not like mushrooms is suddenly bait? I genuinely want to know how people attempt to make these things edible. They always seem to pollute any dish I've had them in with their vile taste.
>>7245931 It's a curious thing that some people hate mushrooms so much, compared to others. It's a very common distaste and often a strong one. Just for curiousity, have you tried many varieties of mushrooms?
>>7248170 Not that bad, mushrooms on pizza shrivel up so badly in the heat that you need ones that have been soaking up brine for a while. I actually love canned mushrooms, I always do a mix of canned/sauteed whenever I make pasta.
Poorly cooked mushrooms can be bad. That's the reason i hated them as a kid, because my mum would not cook them long enough and used zero seasoning. The only rubbery part is the stem, which i remove before cooking.
>chop into quarters >throw them in a freezer bag >pour in some sunflower oil >season with salt, pepper and basil >shake the bag >let them sit for about half hour >get the pan to a med-high heat >fry for about 7-10 mins >pat with paper towel when they're done to get rid of excess oil
>get some pre-made product labelled "wild mushrooms" or with mushrooms included that clearly aren't the standard button >check ingredients >"mushrooms" Which ones? They are all so different, it's like putting "bird" instead of "chicken".
>pick up pack of expensive, dried exotic mushrooms >paralyzed by indecision over what to put them in The last time I picked them up I ended up putting them in a quiche, but I'm haunted by the memory of how incredible this one wild mushroom soup I had was, so I always weigh trying for that soup against the easy and guaranteed use in an omelette or quiche or anything like that.
>>7244194 Well, first of all, usually all mushrooms should be boiled thoroughly before even starting to cook anything with them. Well, technically not all but most. You should realise that mushrooms take in all the pollution and crap, so it is a wise safety measure even when the mushroom is edible just like that. Then again, if one has a favourite spot and all the, he can prolly estimate the quality and such without even tasting. I myself like to always be sure.
Previously from that you, you of course take your mushroom knife and you mushroom brush and remove the dirt and bad bits. Then, the actual cooking bit, mushrooms stay good for about 1 to 3 days after picking in a refrigerator. The taste reduces, though. Mushrooms should be always prepared as fresh as possible. I personally usually season and dry some species and cook some right away. There's nothing like fresh mushroom salad.
>>7251025 >usually all mushrooms should be boiled thoroughly before even starting to cook anything with them What the fuck are you on about? Almost all edible mushrooms can be eaten after sautéing for a few minutes.
>>7245716 people like you hate mushrooms because your parents were baby boomers >JUST THROW ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN WITH SOME LIQUID AND WHEN STUFF DOESN'T LOOK RAW ITS DONE yeah, if you just boil a mushroom it comes out slimy and.. not quite rubbery more like spongy, and tasteless
my mushroom based technique for a quick dinner with little mess: >clean and roughly chop up a bunch of mushrooms >cut up some onion too >finely mince/grate/do whatever to however much garlic you want >sautee onions and mushrooms in a pot on medium high heat with salt until both are well browned >add the garlic and sautee that for a bit >turn up the heat to max, pour in some vegetable stock and bring to a boil >pour in some pasta >keep it boiling, stir constantly until the pasta is cooked and the liquid is reduced and thickened to your liking >add real parmesan cheese, if you don't have that just kys senpai, no it's not fucking expensive, a $25 block of it will probably last a year
