  • You CAN rinse mushrooms with water and they won't get soggy - I promise! The myth that you can't wash mushrooms just isn't true. I like to rinse them under cold water and use my fingers to gently remove any dirt or debris from the mushroom. Then slice and cook. As long as you just give them a quick rinse and don't let them sit in the water, they will not end up being mushy or soggy.
  • One thing that will make mushrooms soggy is salting them right away when you add them to your pan! You'll notice in most of my recipes that I add salt and pepper whenever I had something new to the pan. However, in this recipe, I wait to add another layer of salt and pepper until after the mushrooms have cooked. The mushrooms will still release moisture without salt, but adding salt will quickly draw the moisture from them which we don't want! Cooking the mushrooms over medium-high heat also helps prevent them from getting soggy.
