Braised Vegetarian Meat



I'm not a vegetarian...but there are several vegetarian dishes which please my taste buds. One of them is my chef's homemade specialty - braised vegetarian meat. This is a rather simple recipe which i am going to share it with you today. Hope you like it. Cheers!

Ingredients:
1. Vegetarian Meats* ("Pork", "Roasted Pork" & "Mutton")
2. Dried Mushrooms
3. Ginger (a few slices)
4. Vegetarian Oyster Sauce (~ 2 tbsp)
5. Light Soya Sauce (~ 2 tbsp)
6. Dark Soya Sauce (~ 2 tbsp)
7. Cooking Oil (~ 1 tbsp)
8. Water (~ 500ml)

* We bought the vegetarian meats from Friendly Vegetarian Food Supplier.

Note:
1. Can also add bean curd (cubes), bean curd sticks and black fungus.
2. Add the amount of sauces according to your taste and colour preference.




Directions:
1. Rinse the vegetarian meats and soak the dried mushrooms in water.
2. Heat the cooking oil in a wok and then add in the ginger slices.
3. Add the dried mushrooms, then the vegetarian meat and stir fry them for ~ 5 min.
4. Add the sauces and then stir fry them for another ~ 5 min.
5. Add the water and cover the wok with a lid.
6. Simmer for around ~ 45 min and then serve with steamed rice or porridge.

Sounds oh, so good to me--and I am a vegetarian!

Ahhh, this one must be delicious...Not like you, I'm too lazy to make my own.
There's once I dine in an organic vegetarian restaurant operated by an Taiwanese lady. She made a very delicious vegetarian meat. All natural ingredients like soy, pumpkin, sweet potato, mushroom, water chestnut...Sounds interesting? She is really passion to cooking.
