  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic and sauté until onion is translucent. Add sliced Portabella mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Drain Shitake mushrooms and slice; add to the skillet along with the button mushrooms; salt and pepper to taste and cook for 3 minutes.
