    KateL's Note:

    I am sharing my kitchen secret with you. I first read the small paragraph in Barbara Kafka's Microwave Gourmet about the possibilities of achieving "sauteed" mushrooms quickly in the microwave without a drop of butter. Then I began preparing my Portabello mushrooms this way to top my signature pizza (have you ever noticed that if you pile a lot of toppings on a pizza, it's hard to cook everything through?). I admit I use dry sherry almost as much as I use olive oil! One giant Portabello mushroom (5"-6" diameter) yielded 2 cups raw mushroom slice halves, which yielded 1 cup "sauteed" mushrooms for my pizza. These would also make a wonderful accompaniment to steaks or burgers, or omelets, or on other veggies...

      The mushrooms came out a little anemic with the microwave process. They did have a good flavor. The texture and lack of color was a little off-putting though.

      Yummy! I used white wine and added a little garlic powder. These were wonderful over a grilled steak. Thanks KateL for a new keeper. Made for Zaar Star Tag.

      Great technique! I used red wine and added some garlic powder and ground pepper. I own the Kafka cookbook this originated in, but forgot I even had it. Time to explore it again :)
