Pulled Oyster Burger
The perfect meat alternative for pulled pork: Oyster mushrooms!
Oyster mushrooms have an incredible texture that resembles slow cooked pulled pork using the right recipe.
Prepare the coleslaw: Simply mix all the ingredients together and let it sit while you prepare the mushrooms.
Time to prep your mushrooms: With a fork, shred the mushrooms until they resemble pulled pork. Place your mushrooms so that you can see their gills, then place your fork on the stem and pull downwards. Repeat this process until you only have strips and no whole mushrooms left.
Prepare the sauce: Mix together equal amounts of Ketchup, soy sauce, tomato paste, Sriracha, and agave (or a sweetener of your choice). Add some paprika and garlic powder to your liking and mix again.
Next, fry your mushrooms in a pan with some oil or butter on medium- to high heat until all the water has evaporated. Then add all the sauces, fry for another minute or two, and you're done!
All that's left to do is assemble! We recommend the following order: First mushrooms, then cheese, then coleslaw (+ a little extra ketchup and mayo on your bottom bun).
