Expert Tips

For an earthier mushroom flavor, try 1/2 cup of shiitake mushrooms in place of 1 cup of regular mushrooms.

Garnish this stir-fry with green onion "fans": Cut several 1-inch slits through both ends of 4-inch lengths of green onion. Place slit onions in cold water until the cut ends have fanned out.

Prepare this stir-fry for an Asian-theme dinner party. Start the menu with black tea, and serve wedges of fresh pineapple and fortune cookies for dessert.
