    Mille®'s Note:

    The mushroomherds in China have a much easier job than do western shepherds because the animals that they herd are much better-behaved and, therefore, they are easier to round up at dinner time. Heck, they don't even need to have a dog. This is one possible explanation of why you don't often find Shepherd's Pie on the menus of very many Chinese restaurants. It also explains why there is no lamb in this recipe.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
    • 1/2 cup diced yellow onions or 1/2 cup red onion
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
    • 1 small serrano peppers or 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    • 2 ounces snow peas, ends and strings removed
    • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into small squares
    • 1 lb assorted mushroom, stems trimmed if using shitakes,remove stems,cut into slices or bite-size pieces (e.g. cremini, portobello, shitake, button, etc)
    • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
    • 2 tablespoons rice wine


    1. 1
      In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium heat until hot (or, if you are a fan of TV Chef Paula Deen, you may use “awl” instead of oil – just be sure you don’t use “Pennzawl”).
    2. 2
      Add the onion, cook and stir until tender, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic, ginger (NOT Maryanne but ginger – tee bloody hee, Emeril, there’s no joke like one of your enormous collection of really old jokes), chili pepper, snow peas, bell pepper and mushrooms.
    4. 4
      Cook and stir until the moisture evaporates, about 5 to 7 minutes or so.
    5. 5
      Stir in the oyster-flavored sauce and wine.
    6. 6
      Eat it.

      Amazing how simple this is, yet the flavor is excellent! The oyster sauce gives the vegetables plenty of flavor and adds a little saltiness, yet doesn't overpower them. I like my onions a bit crisp so dumped all the veggies in at once. I also used 4 serranos because I'm addicted to spicy chilies. 5 minutes later I added the last 2 ingredients and that's it! Almost too easy?!

      You crack me up. This was very good. I made without the pea pods since the pea pod-herds hadn't come in yet.

      YUM! We are big mushroom fans so we really enjoyed this simple yet delicious recipe. My only change was to hold back on the snow peas until the other vegetables were almost done as we like our snow peas crisp. Thanks to your sound advice I was especially careful to not chop or grate the Maryanne instead of the ginger!
