Recipe Information  
Category: Appetizers
# of Servings: 2-3
Recipe Created By: Kathy Przywara
  • Ingredients  
  • 6-8    fresh shitake mushrooms
    1/4  lb  pork, ground
    1  Tbsp  soy sauce
    1  Tbsp  rice wine or sake
    1/2  tsp  ginger, freshly grated
    1/4  tsp  pepper
    2  tsp  sesame oil
    1    green onion, chopped
    2  tsp  water chestnut starch
    2  Tbsp  Napa cabbage, shredded
    1  clove  garlic, pressed
        sesame oil
        green onion, sliced
  • Instructions
  • Remove stems from mushrooms, set aside.

    Combine ground pork and remaining ingrediets. Mix well to form a paste. With the cap side down, stuff each mushroom with a small amount of the pork mixture. Be sure to seal the mixture to the mushroom by going around and smoothing it over the edge of the mushroom. If you do not seal it, the mixture will pull together and separate from the mushroom.

    Line a steamer with a few Napa cabbage leaves. Place the mushrooms on the cabbage and steam over boilind water for 15 minutes. Allow to rest 5 minutes. Arrange on a serving plate, or place 2 mushrooms on an individual dish, drizzle with a little sesame oil and garnish with sliced green onion.
  • Comments  
  • This makes a great appetizer or Dim Sum dish. They can be made ahead and steamed at the last minute. Choose smaller mushrooms so that they are easier to pick up with chopsticks!

    Use wheat-free tamari in place of soy sauce if you need to avoid wheat
