Dried Chinese Mushrooms are excellent choices for main dishes during the Chinese Lunar New Year. Shiitake Mushrooms has an intense umami profile that is savoury and woody.

This vegetable dish comes together effortlessly. The radiant colours plays are auspicious to Chinese culture. Braised Chinese mushroom 蠔油燜冬菇 is a traditional Chinese cuisine that can be served during banquets and also serves as the everyday dish at home. They enhances the flavour of soups, stir-fries, dumplings and other braised dishes.

How To Prepare Dried Chinese Mushrooms

How To Prepare Dried Chinese Mushrooms

  • Shiitake mushrooms need rehydrating to become plump and remove dirt particles.
  • Rinse and wash the dried Chinese mushrooms with cold water
  • Place the dried mushrooms in a bowl with cold or room temperature water and cover with saran plastic wrap or a small plate.
  • Soak the Chinese dried mushrooms overnight for best results. If you are in a hurry, soak at least for 30 minutes. Depending on the mushroom caps’ thickness, a quick soak may not be enough to fully resuscitate it.
  • After soaking the dried mushrooms, reserve the soaking mushroom liquid for later.
  • Remove mushroom stems, reserve for later use in cooking. It is full of flavour and great to enhance the flavours of your dish.

It is not ideal for soaking the dried mushrooms in hot water because hot water will affect the mushroom’s flavour. Using hot water will not speed up the process either. It is best to use cold water or room temperature water to help the mushroom retain all the flavour.

What to Do With The Leftover Soaked Mushroom Liquid

What to Do With The Leftover Soaked Mushroom Liquid

The liquid from soaking the dried mushrooms can be used to enhance the flavours of soup, braised dishes, etc.

It is essential to filter the liquid thru a fine mesh sift or cheesecloth. I recommend using both. Wrap the fine mesh sift with a piece of cheesecloth and then filter the mushroom water thru.

How To Braised Dried Chinese Mushrooms

There are many ways to cook Chinese Dried Shiitake Mushrooms. The braising method is straightforward retains its natural flavours.

This dish is traditionally simmered in a wok. I am going to show you how to braise Chinese mushrooms in an Instant Pot.

While waiting for the mushrooms;

  • Place the black moss in a bowl, fill it with water and add a drizzle of oil to remove impurities.
  • Rinse abs discard water.
  • Boil some water in a pot, add in the black moss to quick blanch. Remove and reserve for later.
  • Boil some water in a pot. Then, add salt and vegetable oil into the water. 
  • Blanch bok choy, then quickly remove. (Remember don’t over cook.)

After the mushrooms have finished cooking in the Instant Pot, set to sauté mode.

  1. Add in a slurry of corn starch to thicken the sauce.
  2. Place previously cooked black moss with the mushrooms (adding small sections at a time). Mix well.
  3. Scoop the mushrooms and black moss onto the plate of veggies.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
