Stuffed Shitake Mushroom Gravy


  • 6-14 Shitake mushroom caps
  • 1 cup crab meat
  • 1 unbeaten egg white
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ˝ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp sherry
  • 1 tsp salt


This can be done with dried shiitake but you'll need to rehydrate them first.

First thing you'll need to do after rehydrating if you're using dried shiitakes is to clean the mushrooms and drain canned crab meat if you're using the canned kind. Next, shred crab into a medium-sized bowl and stir in the egg white. Then add the cornstarch, ginger, sherry, and salt. Mix it all together well.

After you've got your filling reading you'll stuff each of the caps with the crab meat mixture. Then arrange them on a place on top of a large pot of simmering water or just use a steamer if you've got it. Steam the mushrooms for about 20 minutes or until they start to shrivel. If you're using dried mushrooms you may only need to steam them for around 10-15 minutes.
