A Tip For Caps

André Baranowski

The trick to cooking mushrooms, or so I was taught, is to saute them fast in a hot skillet to rid them of moisture and concentrate their flavor. But while eating a boiled mushroom salad, I was reminded of another counterintuitive method that I learned recently. Trim them and steam them until tender; they'll be meaty, juicy, and full of their own delicate flavor.
