Oyster Mushroom and Vegetables Stirfry
Oyster Mushroom and Vegetables Stir Fry. Mushroom is not that common in Pinoy cooking compared to the Chinese, Japanese or the Koreans. Once in a while you can find local varieties at wet markets when in season especially in the province for the reason that they are harvested in the wild. I still remember when my grandfather would come home with a basketful of mushroom gathered from the woods. Those local varieties, I don't really remember or know what type, my grandmother would cook it adobo style or dinengdeng mixed with other vegetables are really tasty. Just thinking about it surely brings back old memories. I am sure a lot of you would experience the same and maybe could share it, write some feedback and help me identify what are the varieties of our local mushrooms. Those fresh mushroom sold at supermarket are the cultured variety that are grown in farms, dried and canned mushroom that are normally exported from countries where they are abundant. Fresh mushroom are prominently located along side organic vegetables in supermarkets, oh well I couldn’t resist this time I bought 1/2 kilo I was thinking of stir frying it with other vegetables. Here is the recipe.
