Matsutake Tokusen - best way to prepare?

RWCFoodie | | Sep 21, 2007 03:36 PM

Cruising thru a local Japanese market this afternoon I noticed a large display of matsutake tokusen mushrooms. As a Fall special at $19.99/lb I decided that I needed to buy some and taste what they are all about. The caps are still closed on these, while on the regular matsutake, the caps were open and they were $12.99/lb. Not knowing about them specifically, but about mushrooms in general, I decided that the tightly closed caps were more desirable...

So now I have $10.00 worth of these beauties... Dear Chowhound community, please share techniques or recipes for them. I know I can use Google to find a gazillion recipes but I'd love to have something that is tried and true or a family favorite. Or, are they simply best grilled or sauteed? The store had rice with matsutake in their prepared food case.

Thanks for any ideas...
