Recipe by I'mPat
The DH asked me to save this recipe here for safe keeping, it is from a recently purchased cookbook entitled Chinese Cooking Made Easy. Times are estimated and have not included marinating time or soaking time for the wood-ear. IMPORTANT NOTE - I have listed mushrooms dried as food.com would not accept dried wood-ear or cloud-ear which can be bought at specialist asian grocers.

This was delicious. We added a few extra veggies and were unable to get our hands on yellow bean paste, so we used a combination of 1T Sweet soy sauce, 1T Oyster sauce 1/2T bbq sauce and a few drops of some lychee chilli sauce that was on hand. The instructions were easy to follow and the meat came out beautifully, thanks for a great meal. Made for Photo Tag Fall
