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