This recipe is for mushroom lovers! I love any kind of mushrooms. Their earthy flavor, savory taste and most of all their texture, a little crispy and chewy at the same time. This recipe is for stir fried oyster mushrooms, which really shows off these mushrooms’ taste and texture and is a little nutty from the perilla seeds powder.

A lot of my vegan and vegetarian readers modify my meat recipes by substituting mushrooms, but today’s recipe is made for oyster mushrooms (neutari-beoseot in Korean) which are very popular in Korea. When I lived there I used to go to the wholesale market and buy a big box of them with my friends and then split them up. That was really cheap! Once I got home I blanched them and made this recipe, which is unique for its method of blanching and quick stir frying mushrooms.

You can eat it as a side dish and serve with rice, kimchi or stew (I recommend doenjang-jjigae) or as I show you in the video you can make a simple and easy bibimbap with it. In these pandemic days you might not always have time to prepare a full dinner table with side dishes, so this is a simple and quick way I enjoy mushrooms. Each family member can make their own bibimbap at the table with these mushrooms and some hot rice, sesame oil, a dab of gochujang, and spicy radish salad (musaengchae in Korean, the recipe is on my website and I also posted a quick video on my Instagram). This way it contains all the good nutrients you need in a simple meal.  All mixed together, you can’t find this taste anywhere, it is heaven!  : )

If you have leftovers you can keep them in the fridge up to 3 or 4 days.

    This is one of my favourites but I can rarely get the right mushrooms from my local shops. It’s definitely best with king oyster, oyster and enoki but I’ve made do with button mushrooms when I couldn’t get anything else. The garlic and sesame smell is amazing.
