What are shiitake mushrooms and should I use fresh or dried mushrooms?

Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most popular mushrooms in Asia.

They are brown in color and have a more chewy texture.  When added to dishes, shiitake mushrooms add a lot of flavor.

I prefer to use dried shiitake mushrooms for ease since I always have some in the pantry.  If you prefer, you can also use fresh shiitake mushrooms as well.

  • Cut the entire end stem from the endive before removing each leaf.  This will prevent them from ripping.
  • Make sure to prep all the ingredients beforehand as this recipe tends to move pretty fast when sautéing.
  • You can also add shredded cabbage, water chestnuts, edamame, or any other type of vegetable of your preference.
