Marinated Thai-Style Mushrooms

4 to 6 portions (8 cups)


  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons creamy-style peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound (about 5 cups) fresh white mushrooms, quartered
  • Romaine lettuce, optional, for serving
  • Bell pepper, chopped, optional, for serving
  • Enoki mushrooms, optional, for serving


In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt and crushed red pepper. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until hot, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the mushrooms in a large bowl. Pour the hot marinade over the mushrooms; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature to blend flavors, about 20 minutes.

Serve as is or toss the mushroom mixture with romaine lettuce, chopped bell pepper and enoki mushrooms, if desired.
