  • Group A : 1 tsp. sesame oil, 1 tsp. light soy sauce, 1 tsp. crushed brown slab sugar, 1 tsp. black bean soy sauce, some pepper powder
  • Group B : a pinch of sea salt, 1 tsp. black bean soy sauce, 1 tsp. sesame oil


  1. Soak elm fungi overnight. Replace water a few times until the water stays clear. (This step is to ensure the removal of sulfur.)

  3. Slice fungi into thin pieces. Marinate with seasonings in group A for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat wok with oil. Add grated ginger and all ingredients to stir fry for a while. Turn to low heat. Add seasonings in group B and some water to cook for 3 minutes.
