Penne for Two with Mushrooms and The Salt Table Black Truffle Salt or Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt

Salt Table Black Truffle Salt or Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt.

Cultivated mushrooms don’t have the intense flavor that they’re wild cousins like Italian porcini or truffles, but the latter aren’t readily available to most of us and can be very expensive when they can be had. Here, Salt Table’s Black Truffle Salt bumps up the flavor of cultivated brown mushrooms without putting a strain on your grocery budget. Another good seasoning for this is Salt Table’s Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt.

This is for a cozy dinner for two, but it doubles well; increase the olive oil to only 3 tablespoons.


Serves 2


  • 8 ounces brown (crimini or baby bella) mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and minced
  • 3-4 small to medium fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • Salt Table Black Truffle Salt or Wild Porchini Mushroom
  • Whole black pepper in a mill
  • Salt Table Sea Salt
  • 6 ounces penne pasta
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, plus a little more for serving
  • 8-12 very small sage leaves, for garnish, optional

How to make it:

  1. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a dry cloth or paper towel. Cut small ones into quarters, larger ones into chunks the same size as the quarters. Put at least 3 quarts of water on to boil over medium high heat.
  2. Put the oil and shallot in a 10-12-inch heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat. Sauté until the shallot is a pale gold, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and quickly toss to coat them with the oil. Sauté, tossing almost constantly, until mushrooms are beginning to color. Add the sage and season to taste with Salt Table Black Truffle salt or Wild Porchini Mushroom Salt and pepper. Turn off the heat.
  3. When the pot of water is boiling, stir in a small handful of sea salt and the pasta. Boil it, stirring occasionally, until it’s al dente (firm to the bite but not pasty at the center). When the pasta is almost done, gently reheat the mushrooms over medium low heat, and when the pasta is ready, quickly drain and put it in the pan with the mushrooms. Turn off the heat under the pan, toss well, add the cheese, and toss again. Garnish with whole small sage leaves, if using, and serve at once, passing more cheese separately.

Slow-Cooker Pork Stew Provencal with Mushrooms

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

with Salt Table’s Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt, Peppercorn Medley and Herbes de Provence

The Salt Table’s Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt infuses this stew with deep mushroom flavor without the trouble of reconstituting dried porcini mushrooms and straining their soaking liquid to remove the sand. The Salt Table’s Herbes de Provence provides nicely balanced Provencal flavor without having a host of different condiments and herbs.


Serves 6



  • 3½ pounds boneless pork shoulder (Boston butt), trimmed well and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt Table Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt
  • Salt Table Peppercorn Medley in a mill
  • 1 tablespoon Salt Table Herbes de Provence
  • 1 large yellow onion, trimmed, split lengthwise, peeled, and diced small
  • 1 large or 2 medium cloves garlic, lightly crushed, peeled, and minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • About 1-to-1½ cups beef broth
  • 1 recipe Sautéed Mushrooms with Porcini Salt (recipe follows)
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced flat-leaf parsley


  1. Wrap the pork in several layers of paper towels and pat dry. Put the oil and butter in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Add enough pork to the pan to fill it without crowding and brown it well on all sides. Remove it to the slow cooker, and repeat with the remaining meat. When all the meat is browned, season it well with Porcini Salt and Pepper Medley and sprinkle the Herbes de Provence evenly over it.
  2. Adjust the heat to medium, spoon off all but 2-3 tablespoons of the fat from the pan and add the onion. Sauté until softened and golden brown at the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and toss until fragrant, about half a minute longer. Sprinkle in the flour and stir until smooth and bubbly. Slowly add the wine, stirring constantly, and bring it to a simmer, then stir in 1 cup of the broth. Bring it back to a simmer, stirring constantly, and cook until it’s lightly thickened, then pour it evenly over the pork in the slow cooker.
  3. Add enough broth to barely cover the meat, cover the cooker, and turn the setting to high. Let it heat until it’s bubbly, about 30 minutes, then reduce the setting to low and cook until the pork is fork tender, about 4-6 hours.
  4. The stew can be prepared to this point up to four days ahead. Let it cool completely, transfer it to a storage container, cover tightly, and refrigerate. Reheat it gently in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat, thinning the sauce, if it’s too thick, with a few spoonfuls of water.
  5. Prepare the Sautéed Mushrooms, immediately fold them into the stew, and serve hot, garnished with parsley and accompanied by crusty bread.

Sautéed Mushrooms

Serves 4 as a side dish


  • 1 pound small brown (crimini) mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Salt Table Wild Porcini Mushroom Salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced flat leaf parsley, optional (for garnishing if used as a side dish)


  1. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a dry paper towel and thickly slice them. Put the oil and butter in a deep skillet or sauté pan and turn on the heat to medium. When the butter is melted and the fat is quite hot, add the mushrooms, rapidly tossing. Raise the heat to medium high.
  2. Sauté, tossing often, until the mushrooms are beginning to color on the edges. Season well with Porcini Salt, toss, and cook half a minute longer. Turn off the heat. Taste and correct the salt. If serving as a separate side dish, sprinkle with parsley and serve hot. If using in Pork Provencal, immediately add it to the stew.
