  2. King Oyster Mushrooms: To avoid the mushrooms shrinking during the simmering process, cut 2 king oyster mushrooms into big pieces before starting.
  3. Tamarind: To extract the juice from 50 grams of tamarind, soak it in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 5 minutes.
  5. Step 1: Marinate and stir-fry
  6. Marinate Sauce: Begin by marinating king oyster mushrooms in 1 tablespoon ground garlic, 1 tablespoon red onion, 1 tablespoon sugar
  7. 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon chili sauce, 1/2 teaspoon vegetarian seasoning, and a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper.
  8. After marinating, put it to stir-fry immediately. Do not marinade for an extended time to prevent the mushrooms becoming watery, since the tamarind's simmering time is also long enough for the spices to soak the mushrooms.
  9. Step 2: Final touch and Serving
  10. Sauté garlic in a skillet over medium heat until fragrant, then add 1/2 cup soaking tamarind juice into it.
  11. Then, add the marinated mushrooms and stir-fry together until the mushrooms are watery. Increase the heat to high and continue stirring to thicken and absorb the tamarind sauce into the mushrooms.
  12. Remove the mushrooms from the heat and place them on a serving platter. Top with some minced chili to finish the dish.

If you are not a fan of sour foods, add less than 1/2 cup of tamarind juice, about a few teaspoons, and then season again to taste. Pair these Vegan Simmered King Oyster Mushrooms with Tamarind from the recipe of Food Blogger Duong Yen Nhi (Accnhi) and with steaming rice, salad, or spread over toast. Both of them are visually appealing and delectable!
