I love mushrooms, and mushrooms often are at their best when prepared in the most basic way like this simple mushroom and garlic saute. This recipe is also great for paleo and gluten free life style, with just a few simple and natural ingredients producing very flavorful and filling meal!
The recipe uses 12 oz of button mushrooms and produces modest 4 servings that will go great with any grilled meat, especially steak! Or, you can eat it as-is as a vegetarian dish! After you have sauteed the mushrooms with garlic in olive oil, they become very juicy, delicious, with a meaty flavor and texture:

Sprinkling them with chopped chives or green onions makes the dish even more refreshing:
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add mushrooms and garlic, and saute for 2-3 minutes, regularly stirring with spatula. Sprinkle the mushrooms with a little bit of salt, cover with the lid and continue cooking the mushrooms for another 5-7 minutes, occasionally stirring. Having the lid on will allow mushrooms generate some moisture and not get burned. Remove the lid after mushrooms have released their moisture and saute for another 5 or so minutes. Total cooking time from the beginning to end should be about 15 - 20 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with chopped chives or green onions.
