Braised Mixed Mushrooms With Solomon's Seal 四菇焖玉竹

Recipe source :  Adapted from a booklet titled " Vegetarian Malaysia" distributed together with Flavours magazine 

The extra zing comes from the Solomon's seal or "yuk chuk" in Cantonese. It blended very well with the other Chinese herbs and sauces resulting in a very delightful and refreshing dish of mixed mushrooms.


6 dried Shitake mushrooms, soaked in water to soften
1 tin canned button mushroom
1 packet fresh Shimeji mushroom
1 packet fresh Inoki mushroom
1 tsp wolf berries

2 slices young ginger
5g Solomon's seal or "yuk chuk" in Cantonese
1 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Cornflour Solution

1/2 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp Chinese rice wine

Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl


1.  Combine all the ingredients from the braising stock together with the soaked Shitake mushrooms and bring to the boil in a wok.
2.  Allow to boil for 5 minutes before lowering heat to braise for 15 minutes.
3.  Add button mushrooms, cook for 1 minute.
4.  Then add fresh Shimeji mushrooms, Inoki mushrooms and wolf berries.
5.  Thicken with the cornflour solution.
