What is mushrooms, shiitake?

Shitake mushrooms have a stalk that is removed before consumption as it is tough and woody. It is common for shitake mushrooms to be dried for long term storage.  Dried shitake has an intense flavor that brings earthy character to some dishes.  

Shitake mushrooms

To rehydrate dried shitake mushrooms cover with boiling water and allow to rehydrate for about one hour. Remove the mushrooms, careful not to distrub the gritty sedimate. Filter the mushrooms liquid, which is packed with flavor, through a cofee filter to remove any grit.  Use the resulting liquid to create flavorful mushroom broths and sauces.

Shitake mushroom - close-up

Buy mushrooms as fresh as possible and it is advisable to cook them as soon as possible. Store refrigerated in a paper bag. Storing in plastic or in a sealed container and they will spoil more quickly.

All mushrooms are a type of fungus that is normally found growing in cool damp locations in medows and woodlands whereever the soil is rich in hummus.  Most mushrooms consist of a stalk with an umbrella shaped cap.

To retain the full flavor it is best not to peel or wash the mushrooms but rather brush clean with a soft mushroom brush or damp cloth to remove any dirt.

My craving for Korean food has officially come back to life again, and this was the dish I made for dinner yesterday. Instead of using cooked rice that traditional bibimbap does, this time I cooked soba noodles instead. Sauteed a few veggies that I had on hand separately, tossed with the spicy Korean chili sauce and a bit ketchup, and served with homemade kimchi. YUM!

Making pot stickers are pretty much as same as making dumplings, the only thing different is how to cook them. Instead of boiling in the water, we fry them in a nonstick skillet with a bit oil, which really develops a layer of golden, brown and crispy bottoms with great texture. Serve these yummy pot stickers with a mixture of rice vinegar, a little bit soy sauce, a dash of sesame oil and splash of hot pepper oil.
