In a large, nonstick saute pan, heat the olive oil over high heat until it is very hot, almost smoking, about 3 minutes. Add the diced mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes without stirring. Stir and cook 1 more minute.
Add the 1/4 teaspoon salt, the pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic and mushroom liquid if you used dried mushrooms. Cook until almost evapoarated, about 3 minutes. Add the cream and the additional 1/8 teaspoon of salt if needed. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are well coated, about 2 more minutes. Enjoy!
Chef's Tip:
Do not use dried porcini mushrooms exclusively for this dish. Always mix them with other fresh mushroom varieties in these proportions: 1/2 ounce of dried to 1 1/4 pounds of fresh.
If you are using dried porcini mushrooms, soak them in 3/4 cup of hot chicken stock until soft, about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the mushrooms and soaking water separately.
