Sweet and Sticky Shiitake

Sweet and Sticky Shiitake

So umami!

This recipe is quick, easy, and packed with flavor. The perfect weeknight dinner!

Step 1

Chop your mushrooms into slices and fry them in some vegetable oil over medium heat until they have released all the moisture and are beginning to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 2

Then add the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, chilli sauce, cornstarch mixture, and brown sugar to the pan and let it cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened a little, about 2 min.

Step 3

Add your mushrooms back to the pan for about a minute and stir them until they are covered in the sauce. We like to serve it with rice and spring onions.
