So recently we saw a post from Jed, bauchjw bauchjw and his smoked mushroom soup. Living here in NW Iowa, we don't have access to a wide variety of mushrooms, at least not that I'm aware of. Well I might have mentioned I needed to get a mushroom guy like he has...and next thing I know a package shows up with some Golden mushrooms and an exotic blend. Now I know little about shrooms but here goes.
Being we haven't had these before the 1st try is each cooked in a pan of their own, just butter and a touch of salt.
The Goldens

The exotic blend

We also did some exotic blend in butter with garlic and onion. The three types

Some steaks smoked on our new GMG pellet smoker

My plate...with a steak a little too far done, but still really tender and tasty, carrots from the garden and a blend of the mushrooms. This is where we kinda looked at each other and said ...OMG, these mushrooms are so good! Especially the Goldens, which were our favorite. They were both really good but the goldens...wow!

Now for the mushroom soup. Followed Jeds recipe pretty much exactly. Have some Goldens, exotic blend, and a couple mini bells that get an hour of cold smoke

Wasn't sure if we would want some meat added or not so seasoned up some beef stew meat with Kinders all purpose...one of the gift seasoning we got from forktender forktender from the Christmas lighting thread. We really like them all but have to say...thus one, I put that sh-- on everything! Thank you Dan!

Added veggies in the pan with butter 1st, then garlic, then smoked shrooms...smelled so good!

Then added the beef broth

Needless to sat after letting it simmer for awhile I got scolded! As I just stood at the stove doing quality control checks on it! OMG was it so good! And yes I probably had half of it gone sampling! But...

Might have had some beef stew chunks to use...so maybe half made it into the soup, the other half was finger food!

And yes, some in a bowl...

Not near as good of pics as Jeds soup, it was every bit as good as he claimed! And we agree with his wife...Holy S---! It was out of this world good!
So to Robert, tx smoker tx smoker definitely get in touch with Jed, about his mushroom guy! You put out some amazing food, and these mushrooms far exceeded my expectations!

Thanks for looking and a special thanks to some wonderful forum friends for making this possible!

Very nice Ryan! All that shroom flavor looks like magic!

PS, that Kinders buttery steak house is the bomb on veggies and shrooms to! The bbq sauce is tasty too!
 
Looks killer! Glad it all came out tasty! I have to go get some some of that Kinders now! Very flattered you tried the soup and very happy you enjoyed it! Now you have a mushroom guy🤣
 
That looks absolutely delicious! Ann and I are mushroom addicts. And, for a miracle, I can get a good variety around here. We always have a good stockpile of canned mushrooms. And get fresh often. Try those mushrooms in hot and sour soup. Incredible.
 
Great job & we love mushroom soup!
We get some pretty decent mushrooms down here too. Nothing too exotic though!

Thank you Jed! Think you would really like the Kinders seasonings. Can't thank you enough for the mushrooms, they were so packed with flavor! We will definitely be getting more!

Thanks Steve! You're lucky to have the chance to get a variety of mushrooms. Funny you say that about hot and sour soup... and just to prove I must have too many things on my to do list...not long ago I bought everything I needed to make it but then got busy. After a few days I was trying to remember what I was gonna do with the pork tenderloins, to no avail. So we cooked them up and ate them. Few days later it dawned on me...was gonna make hot and sour soup. Good thing my head is attached!

Nice looking shrooms Ryan! Everything looks fantastic.

Did Jed send you some of the ones that you pick from the cow pasture too? You know the ones that send you on a trip. :emoji_laughing:
Thank you! And he told me I had to pick my own of those! Kinda like walking through a cow pasture blind folded...lost my hat, tried on three before I found it! :emoji_laughing:
