三杯香菇 (Three-Cup Mushrooms)

Ingredients (2 servings):
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1.5-inch-long piece of ginger, peeled and sliced into coins
  • 7 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 2 whole scallions, trimmed and cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 and a half fresh small thai chili pepper (or an appropriate amount of dried one)
  • 250 g button mushrooms, cut into 5mm thick slices (for a meaty dish, add the same amount of chicken or shrimps, or combine, which I like the most, you can also add shiitake)
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine
  • 1/8 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 packed cup fresh Thai or regular basil leaves
 Algorithm: 
  1. Heat 2 tbsp of sesame oil in a wok.
  2. Add ginger, garlic, scallions, and chili peppers and cook until fragrant, approx. 2 minutes.
  3. Move the content of the wok to the side, add the remaining 1 tbsp of sesame oil and wait for it to heat up.
  4. Add the mushrooms and stir fry until browned, approx. 4 minutes.
  5. Add the sugar and combine everything.
  6. Add rice wine, soy sauce, and cornstarch and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer until the sauce thickens, approx. 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and add the basil.
  8. Serve with white rice.
