I love mushrooms!!  I order this dish at our local Japanese restaurant every time we go there, so when I saw this on a tv cooking show and realized how easy it was I had to make it.  We ate it as a side dish to CS’ Blazing Cast Iron Steak  and it was soo yummy!

All you need is an assortment of mushrooms….I use the “Japanese” ones because they’re smaller and thinner so they take on the flavor better and don’t produce as much water.  Here we have brown Shimeji mushrooms, Enoki and some Dried Shitake I found in the pantry.  You’ll also need unsalted butter, soy sauce, garlic and aluminum foil.

First prep your mushrooms by washing them, patting them dry and cutting off the end which is where the mushrooms are all bunched together.  This will help you separate them when you combine all the ingredients later.

Cut up the butter into cubes and dice the garlic.

Now all you have to do is combine everything with some soy sauce and place it into the aluminum foil.  I tried to make the foil into a pan shape so that the juices wouldn’t spill out while everything was steaming.

Leave a little opening at the top to allow some of the water to evaporate.

Now put the foil on a baking sheet and put everything into the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.  When it’s done you’ll be able to smell the garlic and butter, which is heavenly.

Open up the aluminum foil package of goodness, fluff it all up a little with a fork and enjoy!
