Sauteed Mushrooms Sauteed Mushrooms

Author: Canadian Living

From the French verb sauter, meaning “to jump,” sautee refers to the way food jumps around in the hot pan as the food is shaken and tossed.

Proper saut?g produces a browned exterior, which intensifies flavour.

Pan size is important. If it is too large, food can dry out or burn. If it is too small, food will steam instead of brown.
