Duo Mushrooms

I found a packet of shitake mushrooms in the fridge. I think it must have been sitting in the fridge for a week. I took out the ones that were rather soggy and threw them away. The rest were still good , so I halved them and added in some canned button mushrooms to cook up a dish.

Half a packet of fresh shitake mushrooms, halved.
12 pieces of button mushrooms, halved.
1 no. tomato, wedged.
1 bunch green onions, cut into 3 cm lengths.
5 slices ginger

Sauce :
half a cup of hot water
1 tbsp Chinese wine
1 tbsp ginger juice
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sugar
half a tsp salt

Cornflour mixture
1 tbsp water
2 tsp corn flour

Heat up 3 tbsp oil and fry ginger slices till fragrant.

Add in the shitake and button mushrooms together with the tomatoes and stir well for a minute or two.

Add in the sauce mixture and let the ingredients simmer for a minute of two till the tomatoes soften.

Add in the cornflour mixture and throw in the green onions and stir till sauce thickened.

Serve hot with white rice.
