Mushrooms are the culinary world’s hidden gem when it comes to dynamic flavor. They’re great when added to a dish, like this Italian chicken and mushroom dish. They’re also great when added to soup, like this cream of mushroom soup. But mushrooms also shine when they’re left whole and cooked nice and slow.

I opted for making these in my slow cooker as it’s pretty hands-off and yields delicious results.

How to make Slow Cooker Garlic Herb Mushrooms

Place all the ingredients except the butter and parsley in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.

Cook the mushrooms on high for 1-2 hours or low for 2-3 hours, until the mushrooms become tender. You’ll notice a lot of liquid in the slow cooker at this point as the mushrooms release liquid.

Place the butter in the slow cooker during the last 15 minutes.

Serve with a slotted spoon (or not) and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

Best mushrooms to use for this recipe?

I use baby Bella (also known as cremini) mushrooms for this recipe for their deeper and meatier flavor. However, white button mushrooms will also work.

What should I serve these with?

These mushrooms are best served as a side dish to your favorite recipe. I like them with steak, whole roasted spatchcock chicken, or meatloaf.
