These balsamic mushrooms require only a few ingredients and are the perfect match for steak, chicken, pork, or your favorite vegetable! They are the best stir-fried mushrooms you have ever tasted!
Hello! I'm Sarah, I'm excited to go back to Joy Filled Eats with another recipe. I am a mother of four-year-old and two-year-old twins. When I'm not chasing them, I write about food, faith, creativity and motherhood at sarahjhauser.com. I love sharing healthy recipes for everyday life that cater to a variety of lifestyles. In addition to my blog, you can also find me on Instagram (@ sarah.j.hauser) and Facebook (/ sarahjhauser).
Today I share a simple recipe that is the perfect complement for steaks, chicken, pork or your favorite vegetable. These balsamic stir fry mushrooms are full of flavor but require only a few simple ingredients (which you probably have on hand).
I love to cook dishes that let the main ingredient really be the star, and this recipe highlights the rich and deep flavor of mushrooms in the best way. The sweetness of the balsamic perfectly complements the land of mushrooms. The recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare, so you can even prepare it at the last minute if you feel like the protein you're serving needs something else. But to be honest, I think these are delicious on their own!

Ingredients for balsamic sauteed mushrooms
- Olive oil
- Cremini or white mushrooms
- Balsamic vinegar
- Fresh thyme (optional)
How to make sweet mushrooms
Skipping mushrooms doesn't take a lot of effort, but there are a few tricks to know. First, start with mushrooms that are clean and dry. Second, be sure to preheat your pan, and lastly, don't put too many mushrooms in the pan at once. Mushrooms have plenty of water. To make sure they're sauteed instead of soggy, you should start with dried mushrooms (just wipe off the dirt and then pat dry any moisture with a paper towel if necessary). You also want a lot of heat and need room to breathe in the pan. If they are too close together, they will vaporize instead of browning properly.
I like to add a little sparkle to this rich dish, so I top the mushrooms with fresh thyme. You can also try using other herbs on hand, such as rosemary or sage.
Is balsamic vinegar good for Keto?
Yes. As long as you use it in moderate amounts. A serving of these balsamic mushrooms has only 2 carbohydrates.

Balsamic Sauteed Mushrooms
These sauteed mushrooms require only a few ingredients and simple preparation. They are the perfect complement to steak or chicken, or they can even be served as a vegetarian dish with cauliflower rice or cauliflower puree!
Preparation time: 5 minutes.
Cook time: 10 minutes.
Total time: 15 minutes
Course: garnish, garnish
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 12 ounces cremini or sliced white mushrooms
- Kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
- Optional fresh thyme
Heat a cast iron skillet or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat until the oil shines.
Add mushrooms (watch out for hot oil splashes!), Being careful not to overcrowd them. Depending on the size of your pan, you may want to do this in two batches.
Add ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are browned and caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. Add the last tablespoon of olive oil if the pan starts to look too dry.
Turn the heat to medium-low and add the balsamic vinegar. Cook for a couple of minutes until the vinegar is reduced and all the mushrooms are well covered.
Add additional salt to taste and fresh thyme leaves. Serve on cauliflower rice, cauliflower puree, on top of a steak, or whatever you like!
