Shiitake stems can be tough. Remove them or trim the tough bottom part. Stir-fry in a very hot skillet so the mushrooms don't water out. Serve over beef, chicken or Asian noodles.


1 tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil
1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 1/2 cups shiitake, crimini, morel or enoki mushrooms
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon chopped green onion tops
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add ginger and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add soy sauce and sesame oil; cook, stirring, until most of the soy sauce evaporates, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat; sprinkle with green onion. Top with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.
