📘 What is Saté?
Not to be confused with satay, which is a grilled meat served with a peanut sauce, Saté is a Vietnamese condiment prepared with fresh chilies, lemongrass, shallots, and garlic.
It can be prepared ahead and stored in a jar to be used in stir-fries, soups, or marinades. You can check our post on How To Make Saté.
Instead of making the condiment first, we will simply use the same aromatics here and prepare everything in one skillet.
🥣 How to Make Saté Mushrooms
It starts with minced garlic, shallots, chilies, and lemongrass that are sautéed until fragrant. I went with half of a Thai chili here and already found it quite spicy. Feel free to adjust the spiciness to taste.
Next, add mushrooms and sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until cooked and tender. Cremini mushrooms are perfect for this recipe but chopped king oysters or oyster mushrooms will work great as well.
Garnish the mushrooms with finely chopped parsley or cilantro, and serve!
These saté mushrooms are spicy, citrusy, and so easy to prepare! It is perfect served as a side dish with steamed rice, noodles, or on top of mashed potatoes!

Have you ever tried this with already made sate sauce? I have some of your homemade sauce left over in the fridge to use up. Maybe use 2 tbsp?
Yes, 2 tablespoons will be more than enough. If you don't want it too spicy, I would start with one tablespoon.
