Here’s a simple and delicious recipe featuring Golden Oyster mushrooms:
Golden Oyster Mushroom Stir-Fry
1 pound Golden Oyster mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional)
1 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro or green onions for garnish (optional)
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat.
Add the minced garlic and ginger to the pan and stir-fry for about 1 minute until fragrant.
Add the sliced Golden Oyster mushrooms and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until they start to soften and release their moisture.
Add the sliced bell peppers and onion to the pan and continue to stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are crisp-tender.
In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce and oyster sauce (if using). Pour the sauce mixture over the vegetables and mushrooms, and stir well to coat.
Push the vegetables and mushrooms to one side of the pan and pour the cornstarch mixture into the empty space. Stir the cornstarch mixture until it thickens, then mix it into the vegetables and mushrooms until everything is evenly coated in the sauce.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
Remove from heat and garnish with fresh cilantro or green onions if desired.
Serve the Golden Oyster Mushroom Stir-Fry hot over steamed rice or noodles, and enjoy!
