I love mushrooms for as long as I can remember, even when I was a little kid. I love mushrooms of all sorts, shiitake, button, enoki, straw mushrooms—canned or fresh. One of the great things about the United States is that I can get fresh mushrooms easily. They are readily available at the market…

Whenever I get some fresh shiitake mushrooms at the market, I always make this Japanese-style braised mushrooms with dashi and mirin. The end result is a very simple side dish that is absolutely umamilicious. You will know what I mean if you attempt this braised mushroom recipe at home.

    Hi Bee,

    This looks so yummy! I’ve never used braising as a cooking method before, but it seems simple enough.

    I just started browsing your site and am really enjoying what I see. I’m a pescetarian who loves Asian cuisine, and I’m always looking for new fish or vegetarian recipes. I love Japanese and Thai, and haven’t really tried any other Asian cuisine except Chinese. Could you suggest another Asian cuisine to try?

  4. Oh my! This looks wonderful, plus I just bought a big bag of dried shiitakes from the place I normally buy my tea leaves. They were out of the tea I normally buy, so I felt bad for leaving without buying something, and there they were in a big apothecary jar. Now I can try this recipe with them and get umami-riffic!

    These are absolutely delicious! I couldn’t find sake, so I just substituted an extra tablespoon of mirin. I also sautĂ©ed them in a little bit of butter before adding the boiling mixture. Absolutely awesome!
