Stir-fry Pea Shoots with Shiitake Mushrooms
Filed Under: Chinese Recipes Meatless Recipes Recipes Stir Frying
This is an easy Chinese stir-fried pea shoots with sliced shiitake mushrooms. It is a super fast stir-fry since pea shoots (aka ‘dou miao’ or 豆苗 locally) cook very quickly in a high-heat wok.
Stir-frying pea shoots has always been tricky for me as the pea shoots tend to turn out hard and ‘grassy’. Using high wok heat, a bit more oil than usual and more water or broth will help to make the pea shoots tender & moist. Check out this post for more tips for stir-frying a plate of tender pea shoots.

Light yet so very flavourful with shiitake!
I got hold of some pea shoots recently too, but it’s the 大豆苗, stems are “fatter” and hollow. Guess what I did with it instead of stir-fry? Haha. Pea shoots tend to be fibrous but I think the thinner variety like yours is much less fibrous.
raw? in salad??
