    yeah, we ate at one of those huge, monster Chinese buffets today for lunch :giggle, 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.

    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! :lol

    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! :bag

    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.

    :lol 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?

    Oh my gosh, I've never heard of Reuben dip, but I love Reuben sandwiches (in fact, had one today at Corner Bakery) so I will totally eat it with you!!
