Uhmmm another shiitake mushroom, I hope you are okay with that. I wont tired to telling you how much I love shiitake mushroom. The chewiness texture, the umami unique flavour, and it able hold the texture even after I reheat it, I love re heat my meals hehe.
I enjoy this dishes with a bowl of warm jasmine rice, top with fried onion, then chopstick, to be enjoy after long tired day, then I’d own great satisfying evening. How I always seek comfort on food, which I tried to do it in good way, I tried.
Also I have some leftover too, like always, which later I continue to enjoy this dishes with my Indonesian ramen (I posted next). Enjoying it in almost the same way as I enjoy it with my bowl of warm rice.
It is quite simple and quick to make this dishes, suitable for yep. after long tired day. I would called this dishes are stir fried, but, if you want to turned it into braised thick stew, you can freely add like 1/2 to 2/3 cup of water or vegetable stock for this recipe. Which also delicious to be enjoy with any warm carb hehehe.
So let’s go.
