A detailed recipe with measurements is in the recipe card below.

Ingredient Notes

Maitake Mushrooms – aka hen-of-the-woods. If you don’t have maitake mushrooms, you can use cluster oyster mushrooms instead.

Potato starch – can be subbed with cornstarch

Mirin – is a type of rice wine with a slightly sweet, tangy flavor. It’s a staple ingredient for many Japanese dishes, especially since it pairs really well with soy sauce. It’s readily available at Asian supermarkets and on Amazon, but if  you don’t have mirin, add tbsp of dry sherry or dry white wine , plus 1/4 tbsp of brown sugar.

How To Make Maitake Mushroom Steak

A detailed recipe is in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but let me give you a quick overview of the process. From start to finish, it takes about 15 minutes.

Lightly dust maitake mushrooms with potato starch.

Heat vegan butter in a frying pan, and cook the mushrooms on medium-low heat for 5 minutes.

Cooking Tip: Use a spatula or a potato masher to flatten the mushrooms. Keep pressing down on them the entire time they’re cooking. This way, you get a more even sear and crisp on them.

After 5 minutes, flip the mushrooms over and cook for an additional 3 minutes, until browned and crispy on the edges.

Once the mushrooms are seared, reduce the heat to low, and add soy sauce, mirin and black pepper. Stir and coat both sides of the mushrooms with the sauce.

Plate and garnish with sesame seeds and parsley (optional). Enjoy!
