Mushrooms have a great way of absorbing the oils whilst they cook meaning you add more! I have found that by boling them instead they not only keep their shape but there is no oil. If you want that just fried taste then after boling remove dry and add to a hot pan with oil as they are full off water they will absorb very little if not any oil.
Its worked for me i hope it works for you

Really good as a topping for meats.
