Reconstituting dried mushrooms

I am reconstituting some dried porcinis for a dinner I'm making. I'll be using mostly domestic mushrooms, and supplementing them with the dried ones and their liquor. My question is, after the 20 minute soak in warm water, can they be boiled to lessen their toughness? I know I can chop them and use them that way, but would like to use them whole, if possible.
