assorted mushrooms "bulgogi" style

#dinner assorted mushrooms & konnyaku "bulgogi" style #japan I've been trying to make meatless meals for us during the week. Satoshi usually comes home late (after 9), so he really shouldn't be eating anything too heavy.

I was kinda craving bulgogi the other day, but decided to try it with some konnyaku (jellied devil's tongue) and assorted kinoko (mushrooms) instead.

I used the yannyomu (sauce) recipe for bulgogi but cut it in half.

Then, I stir-fried maitake, eringi, shimeji mushrooms, some konnyaku, a little onion & some red bell pepper.

And then I spooned over some of the sauce (about 2 tablespoons) and coated everything well, letting it caramelize a little.

The results, a little light in flavor, maybe I would used tofu instead so that it would soak up some of the sauce.

Overall though, I really liked this.

NOTES: I served this with some lettuce and some kim chee, sprinkling some pine nuts.

To use up the rest of the sauce, I sauteed maitake, eringi, shimeji & some konnyaku in the sauce from the beginning. The results were a little better (more flavor) than the first time.
