Stir Fry Everyday #04 : Mushroom Bulgogi


Mushroom Bulgogi

These oyster mushrooms make a very satisfying meatless version of Dak (Chicken) Bulgogi I made earlier.  The sauce is a keeper, team it with firm tofu, or use it to stir fry an assortment of mushrooms like shitake, enoki etc.

++ Unlike the chicken, the fresh king oyster mushrooms will soak up the sauce like sponges when they are still uncooked.  So I skipped the marinating step, and stir fried the mushrooms with the sauce instead.

1 packet of big oyster mushrooms, sliced

3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon rice wine or mirin
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon sesame oil
dash of black pepper
1 teaspoon sesame seeds


01. Combine all the items except the mushroom together in a medium bowl, whisk till brown sugar dissolves.

02. Preheat skillet over medium heat.

03. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil, and mushrooms into the skillet.  Stir the mushrooms around the skillet to cook them.

04. When the mushrooms are cooked, pour in the sauce in step 1, and stir quickly around to coat them with the sauce.  Add some hot water if it is too dry.

05.  Garnish with more sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

  1. This is a great idea! Never thought of using oyster mushrooms in a bulgogi recipe. Will definitely make this for lunch one of these days. Thanks for sharing!
