I couldn't resist myself when I see fresh oyster mushroom in the Asian market. I loved to serve variety of mushrooms for my family. Oyster mushroom is said to be able to lower the cholesterol levels as it naturally contains lovastatin. All I know is mushroom is good for us so I am trying to cook it often. However, my Evy is not a mushroom lover which makes it hard for me. Because I am trying to give her food that is good for her but she just won't touch it. The only mushroom that she would eat is Enoki mushroom which I will also get whenever I am in the Asian market.
This is one easy stir-frying dish with oyster sauce. If you have a bottle of oyster sauce, you can make lots of Chinese dishes with it. There is even a vegetarian version of oyster sauce which is made from this oyster mushroom.
