Stir-Fried Beech Mushrooms With Salted Egg Yolks
Beech mushroom, or Shimeji (Hypsizygus tessellatus or Hypsizygus marmoreus) is a common variety of mushroom available in most markets in Japan. It has a small cap with crowded, round spots, and usually grows in clusters. Firm textured, this mushroom is considered one of the most "gourmet" of the Oyster-like mushrooms. Recently, this mushroom has been attributed to having anti-cancer properties.
