About 1/2 tablespoon
About 2 rounded teaspoons
Soy sauce

about 1 teaspoon
about 1 tablespoon
Shaoxing wine (Touhai); or sake
about 2 tablespoons
Use Doubanjiang if you want it to be a bit spicy
about 1 teaspoon
Sesame oil for sautéing


1. First, let's cut the chicken. Diagonally slice the chicken breast, and spread it out. Then, cut into thin strips.
2. On a cutting board, sprinkle with the ☆ seasonings after cutting, and rub in. Sprinkle with katakuriko and rub in some more.
3. Now for the ingredients. This part is a breeze. Cut the garlic shoots and green onions roughly. You don't need to boil the garlic shoots.
4. Don't cut the ear wood mushrooms, as they're better cooked in big pieces than cut up for tender and delicious bites. Re-hydrate in water or lukewarm water while rubbing with your hands and changing the water several times.
5. Now, for the seasoning. Combine the ingredients! Add Shaoxing wine for its savory aroma if available. Use sake if you don't have it.
6. Alright. Let's move on to sautéing. As everything is cut thinly, it should be ready in no time.
7. Add sesame oil to the pan, and heat to medium. Saute the ginger and chicken. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
8. Toss in the ear wood mushrooms after sauteing the chicken.
9. Switch to high heat Add the garlic shoots, and stir about 10 times (it'll cook through quickly).
10. Seasonings: Kapow!! Throw it all in and toss from the bottom with a spatula 10 times!
11. Toss in the green onions to finish it off, and stir 3 times!!!
12. All done!
