Cowboy mushrooms

Cowboy mushrooms are a delicious and hearty side dish that pairs well with grilled meats or can stand alone as a flavorful appetizer. Here’s a simple recipe to make cowboy mushrooms:


  • 1 lb (450g) button mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (any color)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional, for heat)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the mushrooms with olive oil until they are evenly coated.
  3. Place the mushrooms directly on the grill grates or add them to the hot skillet in a single layer. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown and soften.
  4. Add the minced garlic, chopped onion, diced bell pepper, and minced jalapeño pepper (if using) to the mushrooms. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  5. Sprinkle the smoked paprika and cumin over the mushroom mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine, allowing the spices to coat the mushrooms and vegetables evenly.
  6. Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes, until the flavors meld together and the mushrooms are fully cooked.
  7. Remove the cowboy mushrooms from the grill or skillet and transfer them to a serving dish. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley for a pop of color and freshness.
  8. Serve hot as a side dish or appetizer, and enjoy the savory and smoky flavor of these delicious cowboy mushrooms!


Astuces (Tips):

  • If using a grill, you can skewer the mushrooms and vegetables on metal or soaked wooden skewers for easier handling.
  • Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, zucchini, or corn.
  • For extra flavor, you can sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese or crumbled feta cheese over the cowboy mushrooms before serving.


These cowboy mushrooms are a fantastic addition to any outdoor barbecue or indoor gathering. With their smoky flavor and savory goodness, they’re sure to be a hit with friends and family alike. Whip up a batch for your next cookout and watch them disappear in no time!
