2 servings


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 cups beech mushrooms

  • 2 cups oyster mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, chopped

  • ½ cup chicken stock

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper

  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions

  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper


  1. Put a clay pot into a cold oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Heat oil in a wok until shimmering. Add beech, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms. Cook and stir until mushrooms soften and volume is reduced, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chicken stock and salt. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and transfer mushroom mixture to the preheated clay pot.

  3. Turn the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) and bake the mushrooms for 10 minutes.

  4. Stir water and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Remove mushrooms from the oven, add cornstarch mixture, and stir everything evenly. Cover, increase oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and bake for another 10 minutes.

  5. Stir in bell pepper, green onions, and white pepper. Bake for 5 minutes and serve.

Cook's Notes:

The clay pot needs to be heated gradually in the oven otherwise it may crack. If your clay pot is brand new, it might be a good idea to cook congee (rice soup) in it for the first time. It will help the clay pot last longer.

Use 1/2 white beech mushrooms and 1/2 brown beech mushrooms.
