Chinese Braised Shiitake Mushrooms
This dish is definitely a delicious traditional Chinese dish. Make sure you choose the high quality dried Chinese mushrooms (shiitake or dun-goo in Cantonese), with the very thick, cracked caps. They will give you a robust flavor and a meaty texture.
These braised mushrooms are delicious with a steaming bowl of jasmine rice. When braised correctly, they taste meatier than meat, if that’s possible! The recipe is a definite keeper; however, I’d like to keep the dish for special occasions, due to the price of the ingredients.
As a note - To get the juice out of ginger root and spring onion, simply chop very fine, then squeeze through a tea-towel (kitchen towel).
