Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves 4


800 g/1 3/4 lb mushrooms, cleaned and cut into the size of pieces you want
50 g/2 oz (3 1/2 tablespoons) butter
salt and white pepper, to taste


Add half the butter to a large pan while it is still cold, then place over maximum heat on your stove. As soon as it has melted and is about to start browning, add the mushrooms in one layer. Now do not touch the mushrooms until you have to flip them. Let them fry and let any water coming out into the pan evaporate. Check the mushrooms here and there for colouration but do not toss them around until you are sure they are coloured enough.

Toss the mushrooms around and once again spread them out into one layer, still over the highest possible heat. Cook until you have good colouration also on the side now facing downwards, this time it will go faster.

When they have stopped leaking liquid into the pan it means they are cooked through. Add the remaining butter and any seasoning. Toss around to glaze and serve immediately.
