Stir Fried Eryngii Mushroom

Fresh Eryngii Mushroom

From Wikipedia, Eryngii (also known as king trumpet mushroom, french horn mushroom, king oyster mushroom) is an edible mushroom native to Mediterranean regions of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, but also grown in parts of Asia.[1] In Chinese, it is called xìng bào gū (杏鮑菇, lit. "almond abalone mushroom").

Pleurotus eryngii
may naturally contain chemicals that stimulate the immune system.

I stumbled upon this mushroom while I was shopping at Jusco, the promoter let the shoppers tasted the dish. Hmm..... It tastes delicious, bought a packet home and my family member love it. Its simple, quick and easy to prepare, that is the main reason for people as lazy as me.

Here is the recipe


1 pkt Eryngii Mushroom - cut into pcs
few sliced ginger
some chopped garlic
some dried chillies - cut in 1 inch length ( I add this to the dish, to enhance the extra 'ouhm' ( kick).


oyster sauce
soya sauce ( I used fish sauce)
1 tbsp shao shine wine


Heat wok with some oil, put in ginger, stir fry a while add in garlic, then dried chillies till aromatic, add in the mushroom, continue to stir fry till soft and juicy.
Add in seasoning, lastly the shao shine wine. Dish out and serve.

Note: Water is not necessary as the mushroom is juicy by itself.
