Braised Black Pepper Mushroom

2 weeks ago, it was my virgin Sunday of waking up early and refuse to go for jogging. Getting lazy...kekeke...aih...super regret now coz i just had a hearty breakfast! If only i jog, then it would balance up my super full breakfast.

Did not jog, what was i upto? Cooking of coz!! This is my 1st time ever braising a mushroom. It wasn't as difficult as i thought it would be. In fact, it's super easy! What's the best companion to a braised mushroom? WANTAN MEE!!!!!! Bribe me with braised mushroom wantan mee, i'll clean your kitchen for a week....okay i'm just kidding...but i really love eating braised mushroom wantan heard me?? I know you do...haha

Next item on the breakfast menu was this overloaded which i cleverly buttered my toast and top it with slices of icey cool cucumber, sardine in tomato sauce (with extra extra ketchup) and not forgetting the protein...the eggs....mmm...yummy! I even thought of making a double stack sandwich but then my mouth is not big enough eh. Okay...come drool over the pictures now....hungry??? Kekekeke

4 tbsp black pepper sauce? Sudah gila ka.. I put only 2 tbsp to fry a 4 servings fried rice with it.


dumb-baker said... ensure a good marination, gotta use that much of liquid lor...otherwise the mushroom taste will be too overpowering....
