Lion’s Mane Mushroom Steaks

1 Tbl avocado or coconut oil.

Salt and pepper

Lions Mane Mushroom

  1. Take off a ½” to 1” slice from the lion's mane and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat a nonstick pan with your oil of choice to medium-high heat.

  3. Sear the mushroom steak on both sides for about 5 minutes.  You should see a nice deep golden brown before you flip to the second side. The mushroom slice will shink significantly.

  4. Enjoy with hot sauce or Worcestershire!

Lion’s Mane has a delightful, meaty texture and savory flavor when cooked.  There are spines all around the outside of the mushroom that get nice and crispy when seared in this way,

There is a lot of research into the health benefits of Lion’s Mane as well.  Health benefits may include “improvement of anxiety, cognitive function, and depression” among many other things.  Source here:

Coming soon to this site will be a section about growing and processing mushrooms into yummy foods as well as medicinal powders and tinctures.  We recently delved into the exciting and weird world of growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms, and I am excited to share the details!

Happy eating.
