It's another mushroom dish. Told you we love mushrooms! What I like about this King Oyster Mushroom is how it looks like and the texture when it's cooked. I always pass it off as braised sliced abalone. My husband got tricked the first time I did this. *giggle*
I prefer to add an additional green with the mushroom. In this case, I added Kai Lan (芥兰) aka Chinese Broccoli. You can always use other veggies. Try this if you are expecting guests for dinner. It's cheap and easy yet presentable.
Does the picture looks like a lotus flower? Have a petal!
