Stir-Fry Mushroom Blend

Break out the wok and lets get the patina in that bad boy shining. Be sure to use a high heat oil like peanut or sesame. Place the wok over blazing high heat – the bigger the flame the better – and add your mushrooms. An explosive sizzle cracks through the air and a burst of steam rises! Caramelization takes over and the mushrooms need little else but a few moments of searing heat. You have achieved wok hay, mushroom style.

Out of stock

Shiitake, shredded Wood Ear, sliced Button mushroom, Cloud Ear, and Oyster mushrooms come together for a unique blend that is perfect for achieving mushroom wok hay. Wok hay is the Cantonese term for the flavors, aromas, and textures imparted to food through proper high heat wok cooking. It translates to “wok heat transfer,” “wok essence;” though a more romantic translation coined by cookbook author, Grace Young, would be “breath of the wok.”

These mushrooms sing ten thousand songs when properly cooked in a seasoned wok. Cooked on blazing high heat the mushrooms are able to caramelize and achieve wok hay: their natural flavors and texture are at their peak and need little seasoning. Perhaps add of bit of garlic, scallion, and ginger to the mix and wok it up to your heart’s content.
