Mushroom delight: Fresh Oyster Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce

I accompanied my husband to see his doctor for his regular check-up last week in the cardiac hospital where I work. Our hospital celebrates Nutrition Month for this whole month of July.  Part of the month-long celebration is the putting up of a Food Gallery at the ground lobby where various food entrepreneurs get to showcase their products. So now, let me share this mushroom recipe I got from one of the stalls when I bought a pack of mushroom.

I bought this pack of organically grown mushrooms for P 100.00. After asking the saleslady about the lifespan of the product which she comprehensively answered (2-3 days at room temperature, 2 weeks when refrigerated, months in the freezer), she voluntarily handed me a list of mushroom dishes with recipes by their company, CMAR Mushroom World, located at Jala Jala, Rizal. Here they are...

Fresh Oyster Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce

1/2 kilo mushrooms
2 tbsps cooking oil
1 cup water
6 tbsps oyster sauce
1/2 head garlic
2 tbsps cornstarch, dissolved in 1/2 cup water

  1. Heat oil in frying pan. Add 1/2 head garlic. When garlic is almost brown, add 1 cup water, salt and   oyster sauce.
  2. Heat to boil, then add cornstarch dissolved in water to the desired consistency.
  3. Put in mushrooms and heat 1 minute. Serve hot.
Preparing and cooking this dish was very easy and fast with only a few ingredients and 1 minute simmer time to cook the mushrooms! Hmmmm... what do you think? I wish I could have purchased more of their products as I still have a few recipes to try from the list given to me. These are Lumpiang Shanghai with Oyster Mushroom, Tempura and Tortang Oyster Mushroom. Till next time!
