Braised Mushroom (in Singaporean style Minced Meat Noodle)

Minced Meat Noodle, or Bak Chor Mee, (rou cuo mian / 肉脞面) is a local Singaporean food that you can practically get at any kopitiam/food court/food centre. It is easy to put together, but this braised mushroom is the one that gives the dish its oomph.

Recipe adapted from rasamalaysia’s japanese braised mushroom as I could only find fresh shiitake mushroom here, but they are totally different dishes.


  • 3 tablespoon white wine
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • a splash of fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sugar/molasses
  • 6-10 fresh shiitake mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 chopped garlic


  1. fry the garlic in oil in a small skillet until garlic turns golden yellow
  2. add in the shiitake mushroom and fry it for a little bit
  3. add in the sauces, molasses/sugar and white wine and let the mushroom simmer in the sauce. The sauce will thicken.
  4. Let the mushroom sit in the sauce until you are ready to assemble your bak chor mee.

Can’t wait for dinner in a bit! Heh.

//edit. Dinner is served. Yummm!
