These teriyaki mushrooms make a great side dish or topping for your burger (veggie for me) or protein of choice.

We love making dishes with teriyaki sauce like teriyaki vegetables and teriyaki noodles.

These mushrooms are really simple to make, but so flavorful!

We love to eat them as an easy side dish to go along with dinner.

Ingredients to make teriyaki mushrooms

  • sliced mushrooms: white or portobello
  • garlic cloves
  • salted butter

  • cornstarch and water: to thicken the teriyaki sauce

How to make teriyaki mushrooms

Step 1: Wash and pat dry the mushrooms. Mince the garlic cloves.

Step 2: Melt the butter in a large skillet.

The larger skillet the better to let the mushrooms have more room to cook evenly.

Step 3: Add the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic to the skillet.

Sauté for 20-25 minutes, until the mushrooms cook down and the liquid evaporates completely.

If there is excess liquid in the middle of cook time you can use a spoon to drain this off.

There should be no liquid at the end.

Step 4: While the mushrooms are cooking, make the homemade teriyaki sauce.

Add the soy sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, and minced fresh ginger to a sauce pan.

Heat the sauce over medium for around 5 minutes, stirring until the brown sugar dissolves.

In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water until dissolved.

This is the slurry that will thicken the teriyaki sauce.

Add the cornstarch/water slurry to the remaining ingredients in the sauce pan, stir constantly for 3-5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

You can also substitute pineapple juice for orange juice in the teriyaki sauce if you want.

I have done this before and it is delicious both ways!

If you have never tried making teriyaki sauce yourself, you will be surprised at how easy and delicious it is.

All you need is just a few minutes to make homemade sauce that will taste better than anything you could buy at a store.

Step 5: Once the mushrooms have finished cooking and no liquid remains, stir in the teriyaki sauce and toss to combine.

We simply can’t get enough of this mouthwatering mushroom recipe.

Serve as a side for a cookout, dinner, or as part of your homemade takeout style feast.

This would be so yummy alongside this cabbage stir fry or orange cauliflower.

What kind of mushrooms to use?

I recommend using white button mushrooms or portobello mushrooms, as they are a little thicker and heartier.

I do not recommend using oyster or shiitake mushrooms for this kind of recipe.

You want a little bit of bite to these, which is why the thicker cut mushrooms do best!

How to serve them

As mentioned above, these mushrooms are truly great all on their own as a side dish.

But you could always throw it on your burger, chicken, tofu, or any main dish protein for a little something extra!

I think these would be incredible on a teriyaki themed veggie burger.
