    ‘Goma-ae’ Mushrooms

    I cook ‘Goma-ae’ dishes very often, using a variety of vegetables. ‘Goma-ae’ Sauce, which is a sweet sauce of ground toasted sesame seeds, goes very well with many vegetables and mushrooms. For ‘Goma-ae’, use meaty mushrooms such as Shiitake, King Oysters, Shimeji, etc. I usually quickly sauté them in a hot skillet, but you can …

    Dried Mushrooms Takikomigohan

    One of my favourite ‘Takikomigohan’ is ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’ and I sometimes crave the dish. One day I really wanted to cook it but had no fresh Asian mushrooms.

    Chicken & Shiitake Skewers

    Just two ingredients and a little bit extra effort make this amazing dish. When you find thick & plump fresh Shiitake (mushrooms), please try it! Chicken can be thigh, breast or tenderloin, but Chicken and Shiitake need to be cut to similar sizes so that they will be cooked evenly. Same as ‘Yakitori’, if you …

    This is what my mother used to cook for my sisters and me. She often used thinly sliced off-cut beef or pork, but minced meat is easier for me. Today I cooked Onion and Shiitake with mince, but you can cook whatever you have. When I was a little girl, it was such a fun …

You don’t need to add stock because the yummy juices come out from Beef and Mushrooms are just enough.
