My contribution

Tonight's reunion dinner at my in laws, I contributed my mom's famous braised mushrooms. I am glad that I got favourable comments on the dish. This dish is one of my mom's many nice dishes that she can produce. We simply love it.


What you need

400g mushroom (wash and remove steam, soak over night in hot water)
dried oyster (soak about 10 mins and clean)
4 X 5 inches spare ribs
4 tbsp cornflour
8 - 9 tbsp ginger juice
4 tbsp oil
1 1/2 litre of water
1 tsp light soya sauce
Oyster sauce to taste


Marinate mushrooms with cornflour, ginger juice, oil. Set aside for 10 mins

Put mushrooms and water and boil for 1 hour.

Marinate oysters with light soya sauce and a few drops of oil.

When the mushroom has softened, add oysters and spare ribs to mushroom stew after it has been cooked for 1/2 hour.

Turned down heat to low and slowly simmer for an hour till spare rib has soften.

Seasoned with oyster sauce and salt.

Note: you can put in Fatt Choy only the last 5 mins of cooking.

My mom also make some pickles for me to bring over, unfortunately none knows how to appreciate it. So I bought it home again.

Personally, I feel it is nice and spicy. Good appetitiser.

  3. your mum pickles looks so nice, share the recipe ?

  4. regarding ur braised mushroom, tis is my late grandmother's tip, try adding a little bit of rock sugar to it, it'll make the mushroom more crunchier, n smooth.....yummmm....

  5. Thanks for the tips. Surprisingly, I seldom use sugar for cooking, will try out this next. Accordingly to my mom, somehow the quality of the mushroom counts alot in making this dish a superb one.

  6. Hi,

    Where did you get the ginger juice ?


  7. Ling, you grate it from an old ginger. Squeeze out the juice and dispose the fibre.
