mushrooms at Chinese buffet

yeah, we ate at one of those huge, monster Chinese buffets today for lunch , which I happen to love!

anyway, they have these button mushrooms that I really love and have gotten before. I just don't know how they are cooked. Anyone know what kind I am talking about? They are usually whole and are in kind of a broth.

I have really been craving mushrooms lately and those were so good today. So I thought I would ask and maybe attempt them at home.

TIA!

I think I may have a recipe in one of my Chinese cookbooks. I'm OOT at the moment, but I'll look when I get home.

no, they are just regular button mushrooms, but they are in a broth-y kind of sauce.

Thanks Michelle - hopefully you can help my craving!

Those ARE really good! Enoki's are good too, but those I usually have just used them in soups and occasionally in stir-fry type dishes. I haven't cooked with buttons at home though. I hope Michelle has a great recipe for you!

YUM, I know exactly what you are talking about. I hope someone post a good recipe so we can make them at home. Now I want Chinese food.

Oops, sorry! I totally forgot about this!

I just looked in a couple of my cookbooks, and I found a couple recipes, but not sure if they're exactly what you're looking for. Is the broth/sauce kind of brown or more light? Thick or thin?

Most of my recipes actually call for Chinese black mushrooms (****akes), but you could probably sub white button mushrooms. I have a recipe for Stir-fried Mushrooms & Bamboo Shoots with Oyster Sauce, and one for "Preserved" Mushrooms, which are actually just sauteed in soy sauce.

at the censored mushrooms!

no problem - keep them out and I will take a look at them tomorrow. Broth is thin and brown...and yummy. Not really soy sauce tasting so maybe it is an oyster sauce?
