When fried, mushrooms lose a lot of protein, ash, and carbohydrate content but bump up fat and energy, and when boiled (gross), the fungus improved the.

The team looked at how different cooking methods — like grilling, frying, boiling, and microwaving — impacted the nutritional profile of these types of mushrooms. The scientists found boiling and frying to be a poor choice, as boiling resulted in a loss of vitamins while frying resulted in a loss of protein and spiked the fat content of mushrooms.

  • Früher kannte ich mich mal mit Pilzen ganz gut aus, habe sogar mal Trüffel gefunden (brauner Erdtrüffel, Oberfranken, Deutschland)! Leider habe ich mich nicht getraut, sie zu essen, da sie innen lila gesprenkelt waren! Hätte ich aber tun sollen, da diese rar und wohlschmeckend gewesen wären!

  • I am confused in the description the mushrooms are carcinogenic from the chemical, not eat raw. Then cooking reduces the risk. Then mushrooms fight/ reduce the risk ofcancer. How can all of this make sense? Thanks.

  • Remember to always check the mushrooms you forage… I found out the hard way… luckily I got away with only really bad diarrhea but I learned my lesson now.

  • I saw this tip/hint on a recent episode of ATK, maybe it was a repeat that I had originally missed, but followed his advice. Amazing the amount of water that initially comes out of the mushrooms then after a couple of minutes it has evaporated. I added a tablespoon of butter and did a bit of browning and these will go into a skillet of pork chops later today that will be slowly simmered after they are browned. Dang, they sure do smell good!

    I made this same pork chop and mushroom dish about 2 months ago and while browning the mushrooms I kept adding oil, adding oil, adding oil. Little did I know the reason why they sucking up all that oil. Problem is now solved, thank Dan!!

  • Takes Balls to stand to one side and let a greater expert speak for you Thanks for posting Fred:) and Gordon = “Subscribed-Now-Obviously” cheers mate

  • Let’s be honest nearly anything cooked with this amount of butter, oil and garlic must taste well ��
    Nice video and a great side dish..
    Tastes great cold too.

  • I have 6 type of mushrooms in my supermarket. I only like the white common mushroom from Tesco. P.S that supermarket man is selling forest poison wild mushroom, you can bloody die from that.

  • Those big mushrooms are common in my place especially during raining season. Love to pick those mushrooms during my childhood, now I hardly go to the forest

  • Ya but Gordon, if he stands in his shop, how could he write an encyclopedia on mushrooms? Perhaps a few paragraphs, would be more adequate stated.
    just sayin’

  • I never eat mushrooms and i dont wanna try ut cause it could taste horrible but it could taste fucking cool,so can someone tell me how they taste and hows the texture of the mushrooms used on pizzas?

  • NOT an expert.
    This guy just sells handful of mushrooms mostly farmed, and his advice is common knowledge.
    DEFINITELY NOT AN EXPERT. Just a common mushroom peddler.

  • In a fancy shop I’ve seen pricey silvery skillets like the one above for €150 (about $170?). Are they much better than the IKEA ones???

  • I always used to like fresh mushrooms up until lately I have been buying dried ones. Dried mushrooms are better in taste than fresh ones. It brings out more flavor. I have started drying my mushrooms now. Try it guys. Its so much tastier. I love mushrooms. They were meant to be dried. A big chef like Gordon should know this.

  • Dan, it’s a pleasure to watch you.
    Your video’s get straight to the point. Your visuals are clean & precise. Please continue to inform and entertain us. ��

  • Fun fact, while mushrooms aren’t plants or animals, they are still more related to animals than plants. Or rather, we’re closer related to a mushroom than a tree.

  • Your vids are helping me with my depression. I see you do all this and i feel peaceful and a little more motivated.

    Thank you. ����

  • Your mushroom expert outed himself when he said all mushrooms smell metallic, bad nose on him. The Chanterelles you showed are yellowfoot, not golden. Stop pretending you know everything you pompous piece of shit.

  • I’m curious why here they use water to precook mushrooms even though his experiment used a microwave. On the other hand, they say eggplants also are spongey and collapse when cooked so they microwave those before sauteing. I feel like microwaves are faster since they don’t need to warm up unless it’s just a way to use the pan while it’s heating up for the oil.

  • Glad to learn better how to cook mushrooms. I have loved them since I was a child and knowing how to best sautee them means maybe I will eat them more often.

  • My initial experience with morel mushrooms taught me something. I brought the morels home in a plastic bag because my intention was to cook them right away. To my horror I saw tiny worms coming out of the mushrooms. But that was the good news! They were coming out of the mushrooms because the natural heat of them being in a plastic bag drew them out. All I had to do was wait until they had all exited the mushrooms before cooking them. It didn’t take long for them to leave.

  • In our kitchen we layer our frying pan with butter, onion, crimini, and shiitake. The higher moisturer content of the lower ingredients steams the mushrooms. By the time you’re ready to toss it you have enough liquid/fat to effectively cook the mushroomswhich we finish with brandy.

  • Super��������I subsribed your channel..I am starter in cooking channel.Exoecting your SUBSCRIPTION support..pls��

  • You are a god amongst man. Finally I underatand why mushrooma behave so weird! Thx so much for this, I will know what to do next time.

  • I recently made this and used half button mushrooms sliced and half portabellas also sliced. Outstanding flavor and textures. Sooooo good.

  • HiI never liked mushrooms. But My doctor said to incorporate them for my health.
    I love them now because I tried your method thank you for sharing.

  • 4:45 ish, I think the video skipped from the discussion of uncooked to cooked mushrooms. Cooking them breaks down the walls so it absorbs less when oil is applied after. Cooking in oil merely replaces the water with the oil (that’s my understanding). I could be wrong.

  • How to chanterelle:

    1: Put a bunch of them in a frying pan with a lid on medium heat
    2: When they are sweating so much they are soaking, remove lid and turn the heat to high
    3: Fry away all the water (ALL of it)
    4: Add lots of butter and some salt and keep frying for a while

    Great on crisp flatbread

  • All grain/seed “vegetable oils” are Toxic. Fruits oils such as Avacado Oil (best) or Olive Oil (okay) but if you are goung to cook with a fat it should be an animal fat NOT a “vegetable oil.” I have used the “water saute” technique when cooking mushrooms for the past 25 years. I particularly like using smoked goose fat for mushrooms and eggs too.

  • I soak my shiitake til fully soggy then freeze them in the water then thaw them then cook them in pressure cooker (the freezing of soggy shiitake ruptures cell walls and then cooking in the pressure cooker further breaks down the chitin. The freeze/thawed mushrooms are much less rubbery and are much softer than if I simply cook the soaked shiitake ( The stems will be tough either way )

  • Grew up in Ukraine, and I still remember, 30 years later, picking mushrooms in the forests with my grandparents. I was just a kid so I didn’t know the difference between the good and poisonous ones, so behind my back, they threw out the bad ones. 😉

    Besides being delicious, they are incredibly sustainable. Based on some quick googling, you can grow 25 pounds of oyster mushrooms in a single square foot of area! (I can confirm that with my own oyster experiments.) That’s before you start stacking!

  • That looks fantastic will have to make it this weekend. Also think I will cube up some chicken and cook it separately and add it to the mushrooms or maybe shrimp instead.

  • I rarely, rarely see more than portabella and white button but then I only have HEB and Kroger that I can primarily shop at… mushrooms do make me little nervous. i’d like to learn more about them and try them.

  • This episode explains why Alton Brown’s way of sauteing mushrooms works better than what I’ve been doing all these years. Saute them with a little liquid, then add a pat of butter and garlic. The liquid frees all the stored liquid in the mushrooms which concentrates into glutemate-rich sauce that you finish with butter.

  • Thank you for posting this. I’m making it right now following these directions. The smells coming from the kitchen are incredible.

  • Очень нравится всё,что она делает, Я с удовольствием смотрю, жалко нет русского перевода, взяла бы на заметку, но не понимаю какие ингредиенты и пользуются.

  • 5:42 gonna say it right now, that title is a lie. I have burnt many a mushroom into charcoal in my time, so you can in fact overcook mushrooms. You just can’t over steam it.

  • It’ll be very nice when they finally legalized hallucinogenic mushrooms. There is many people out there that use them for depression and many other Behavioral Science reasons

  • LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Latin names of the plants!!! Love the captions in English!!! Please leave on screen longer, I have to keep pausing and rewinding. ❤️

  • Wow… It’s fun to find out that you’ve been doing something the correct way for a long time. �� I’ve been cooking mushrooms like this for years because I hated how much oil they normally absorb.

  • Craziest experience with mushrooms… Covered myself in hubba bubba tape gum while laughing maniacally for hours with planet earth on in background. My friend also stripped naked and ran into the woods. Came back like 6 hours later covered in cuts and bruises. I think my trip was better lmao

  • Aku suka banget sama k’ liziqi aplg klau metik sesuatu kehutan…. Senang aja liat nya����…aku Husna dari Indonesia kota Makassar…salam kenal k’ liziqi…

  • Nearly 40 years ago my wife and I started a small farm. One day I noticed the cows were all grazing in one section of the meadow. When I hiked down to them I saw a sea of ugly big mushrooms. They were so ugly, looking like brains, and on average maybe 6″ tall and the cows were gobbling them up like lush green grass. I hurded them to an adjacent pasture and spent the rest of that day and the next kicking over or cutting off these mushrooms that I was sure must poisonous. I asked the vet to stop by and when he saw them he had one of the best laughs he’d had in a long time. They were morels……

  • Just read these comments, why in Gods name are so-called mushroom experts so bloody annoying and know-it-all ish? I’ve seen so many contradictions in the field of mycology you would think you all would be humble by now.

  • Hello im from Philippines and im always watching your video morning afternoon and night because your videos helping me to relieve my anxiety i wanna stay healthy �� thanks for your video….

  • Hi. Mycologist here. Just stop. You are full of crap.

    Craziest experience? I own a mushroom growing business and a 450 acre farm. Where do I begin?

  • I always dislike your video, the moment I see you harm an animal and consume them for your taste buds and gut… sometimes I feel how ruthless you are… You start with a positive note and end with a negative one. I hope, yours dogs never see that fate one day ��

  • people lack respect with the kind of lives of luxury. people should live like her. hard work. really working for your meals, your clothes, make up, dressing. to work like her is very difficult. those mushrooms were picked in the wild. do you know how hard it is to identify the right mushrooms? do you know how hard it is to make furniture out of bamboo without machines? she does work that should be given infinite honors. She needs to be a millionaire for her hard work. i praise this person.

  • Well… they are not bulletproof for overcooking. I managed to overheat them I forgot about the pot with a mushroom stew and those portos went berserk. Inedible is an understatement.

  • If you wash your mushrooms, don’t add any water to the pan. I just did a real quick job of making soup. I know it will boil off, but then I have to solve the problem of how to recover the flavor.

  • That thing where you look at the mushrooms you arranged in front of yourself and then smile like a child makes me want to no longer live.

  • ผมว่าเธอคือ Super iron girls ตัวจริงเพราะเห็นเธอทำใด้ทุกอย่างที่แรกผมว่าเธอเปนผู้หญิง1 ใน10 ล้าน ตอนนี้น่าจะเปน1ใน100ล้านแล้วครับ สุดยอดมากกกกกก

  • I used to eat this mushrooms when i was young when there are a lot of tress and plants around the house. Everytime after raining coming aftr 2 or 3 days this mushrooms can see everywhere. It taste very delicious even better than any of meat. But nowadays hard to find this mushrooms, people start building everything and chop down those trees and plants ������☹️☹️☹️

  • Hmm, my craziest story with ��… So one time I was cooking up some cats, like three or four, in a skillet. It was a huge skillet. And I dumped in a liter of oil. I thought that would be enough, but the oil just evaporated. So I poured in another liter, and again �� oil was gone. Then I noticed I hadn’t even turned on the heat yet. ��Now a just had a bunch of oiled up angry kittens. So I did what any normal person would have done, bagged them up and handed them over to my friend. My friend just looked at me weirdly, saying that kittens aren’t even real, and that I should keep my hands of his ��. He is sick I tell you, sick.

  • Who else came here thinking we were finally going to learn the difference between portabella, button, and shitake mushrooms instead of being told about 20 new kinds of mushrooms we’ve never even heard of before?


  • I’m gonna put these the burgers I’m grilling for supper!!!!!!! This looks Awesome and I bet it’ll make these burgers delicious… Thanks for sharing…

  • For anyone who thinks all foods are better raw, don’t get mad at me. I didn’t put the toxins in the mushrooms and I’m not making this information up either, just relaying the facts. It’s funny how people will dislike a video with information they don’t want to hear or believeSilly people. How about this, you can eat your mushrooms raw, all you want. I however, will eat my mushrooms cooked.
