What are King Oyster Mushrooms?
King oyster mushrooms are easy to spot out once you know what to look for! While most common mushrooms at the grocery stores have prominent mushroom tops, the king oyster mushroom is the exact opposite. Their prominent feature is their thick tall steam with a thin mushroom top layer.
This type of mushroom is known for its intense umami flavor, which adds an additional flavor to our already mouthwatering glaze! We’ll be cutting the mushrooms length-wise to create a large surface area to soak in all the amazing flavors from our miso butter glaze. It’s seriously SO GOOD!
You can easily find king oyster mushrooms in the Asian market, although, some local superstores may have them available also.

Miso Butter Mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium white miso paste
- ¼ teaspoon dark soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon honey
- 1 garlic clove grated
- 10 oz king oyster mushrooms thinly sliced lengthwise
- In a mixing bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
- Heat a large pan on medium-high heat. Add in oyster mushrooms, working in batches if needed so the pan isn’t overcrowded. Cook for a couple of minutes, flipping halfway through until they’re browned and tender.
- Reduce the heat to medium then pour in the sauce. Mix and cook until the mushrooms absorb the sauce and become caramelized. Keep a close eye on them because miso burns easily. Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy!
- Mushrooms: You can swap out oyster mushrooms for cremini or button mushrooms as well.
- Low-Sodium White Miso Paste: You can easily find it at your local Asian or Japanese markets in the refrigerated section.
- Dark Soy Sauce: Dark soy sauce is used for the rich dark color it gives food. You can easily find it at local Asian markets. If you do omit it, just keep in mind that your mushrooms and sauce will come out lighter in color.
