Easy Mushroom Stir-Fry

This mushroom stir fry is cooked in minutes and it tastes super delicious too. In this recipe, I use a combination of white button (350 gram), white shimeji (125 gram), and brown shimeji (125 gram) mushrooms. If you prefer, you can change the white button mushroom to shiitake, or you can use all shimeji too for simplicity.

Aside from mushrooms, you will need minced garlic, thinly sliced shallot, julienned bell pepper (or serrano, freshno, or jalapeno for extra kick) and thinly sliced scallions. For the sauce, simply stir together soy sauce, mirin, sake, sesame oil, and grated ginger. The cooking process is also very simple, start by sautéing garlic and shallot until fragrant, then add button mushrooms and cook until wilted, then add shimeji mushrooms and cook again until wilted. Add bell pepper, mix well, and pour the sauce. Once the sauce is boiling, turn it off, garnish with scallions and serve.
