On the Korean table, meals typically feature several banchan, or small plates. Garlicky, umami-rich stir-fried or sautéed mushrooms, called buh-sut bokkeum, are a common banchan. For our version, we like to mix mushroom varieties for textural and visual appeal, and we accentuate their meaty flavor with soy sauce plus both sesame oil and seeds. Fresh chili adds a little heat, while rice vinegar brightens the mushrooms’ earthiness. Korean chili flakes (gochugaru) or chili threads (silgochu) are a nice finishing touch for the mushrooms, or you could snip a few sheets of roasted seaweed snacks into thin strips for sprinkling on just before serving. But even without any garnish, the mushrooms are delicious and a great side to just about any type of seared, grilled or roasted meat or poultry. Or offer them in a small portion as a banchan as part of a Korean-inspired meal.




Don’t forget to remove the stems if using shiitake mushrooms. Unlike other mushroom varieties, shiitakes have tough, fibrous stems that don’t become tender with cooking.

Great mushrooms!
I used oyster and button mushrooms, but the star was the flavorings. Wonderful side dish for a pernil roast

Easy & excellent
Super flavorful, very simple to make. I used cremini and oyster mushrooms. This is going to become a staple of my stir-fries!

One of the best things I've made of late. Doesn't make a ton, but what's there is delicious! Used a mix of oyster, cremini, and shiitake.
