Fried Beehoon with Mushrooms and Vegetables

I saw this recipe at Authentic Recipes from Singapore cookbook I got from Periplus discount yesterday. At first, I thought this is just another simple recipe, so I decided to try it for tonight’s dinner. Turned out the preparation took about 30 minutes and there’s so much step to do before you actually stir fry the beehoon. But SC said the result was quite delicious although it was a bit less salty. Well, at least it was worth the effort :)

    Ooooh….! Gue suka nih bihun model gini.
    Ada bbrp time-saving trick yg gue suka pake Jen:
    a. shiitake rendam aja pake air dingin (menurut buku masak Jepang). Mengembang juga kok. Gak perlu masak air dulu dan wkt ngiris juga gak kepanasan.
    b. kalo goreng bihun susah, bisa masukin sayur2-an dulu kemudian terakhir bihun yg udah lembut. Bihun akan menyerap segala kuah yg keluar dari sayuran.

    hehehe thanks Ven… ntar gw coba lagi deh pake mie. kayanya sih emang bagusan masukin sayuran dulu… kemaren gw salah itung bihunnya, maunya bikin 2 porsi, jadinya malah cukup buat 4-5 org kelaparan. :P
