A traditional Chinese dish with shiitake mushrooms. Choose the high quality dried shiitake mushrooms, with the very thick, cracked caps. They will give you a robust flavour and a meaty texture. These braised mushrooms are delicious with a steaming bowl of jasmine rice. When braised correctly, they tasted meatier than meat, if that’s possible!
Ginger juice and spring onion juice are made by finely chopping either ingredient, then placing it into a cloth and squeezing out the juice. Shaoxing wine, rock sugar and dried shiitake mushrooms can be purchase in Chinese speciality shops.
