    Default Microwave mushrooms?

    Have you tried microwaving mushrooms?

    The Mushroom Council does it, so it must be good.

    That subject line made me rear back in horror. I would never, ever
    have thought of putting mushrooms in the microwave. I read your link,
    but I still don't think I will try it. I have a mental image of
    tough, rubbery mushrooms sitting in a puddle of liquid. shudder

    No and I would have no need to. We don't eat mushrooms just by themselves
    because...well...we just don't like them that way. I have used them to make
    a sauce for tuna casserole. I do put them in meatloaf or a pasta sauce.
    That's pretty much about it.

    Why would anyone ever want to do that? How long does it take to sautee
    some mushrooms?

    I think the microwave gets a bum rap, yet a lot of people buy
    them. I never made mushrooms by themselves in the microwave, but I
    have cooked them in other things that way. To me it's just another
    way of moving molecules around (whatever the hell they are).

    Here's an example of my microwave cooking. Broil some boneless
    pork chops or chicken and also steam a pound of brown rice, or however
    you'd like to make it. Those two items go in the fridge, to be used
    for 5 or 6 straight days (I can handle it if the food is good).

    Now each day I pull a plastic container from the fridge
    containing half a cabbage cut into 4 quarters, some scallions,
    jalapenos, lemons, some brocoli crowns, maybe some red bell pepper
    cleaned, stemmed and seeded. I also have a bag of mushrooms and a bag
    of cilantro.

    I cut these veggies to a size I know cooks well in about 4 to 5
    minutes in the microwave. Trial and error got me there. I put the
    veggies of choice cut to just the right size in a bowl along with some
    cilantro and mushrooms from the bags, then toss some cut up meat and a
    handful of brown rice into the mix, pour olive oil and lemon juice on
    it along with salt and pepper and cayenne, stir and put in the
    microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. The fresh raw stuff cooks down while
    the already cooked brown rice and pork or chicken is not over cooked
    in that span of time. It's pretty damn good. The microwave is my
    friend.

    Only if I were adding them to a sauce, but not hamburger sauce.

    I've often added fresh mushrooms to frozen veggies, soups, and all
    kinds of left overs and cooked them in the nuker, 'shrooms turn out as
    good as with any other method. WTF is hamburger sauce?

    Nope. Hamburger sauce is Heinz ketchup.
