Nametake - Enoki in Mirin and Soy Sauce

This is a really really really simple way to cook enoki mushroom, or you can also use nameko or shimeji :) First, cut to remove the moldy end of the mushroom, then chop into three equal parts, and this is now ready to be cooked.

Anyone should be able to prepare this dish. In fact, if you are feeling super lazy, just combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover with saran wrap, and microwave until the mushroom has wilted and turned brown from absorbing the sauce. Let it cool a bit, then it is ready to be eaten. Perfect for college student with no kitchen access, but a working microwave, right? So much healthier than ramen. Actually, forget what I said, you can eat your ramen, but add this, and maybe an egg, and some chopped spring onions, okay. :D

      Hmm... I am not sure which dish you have in mind, does it also include some kind of meat sauce that coats everything together? If that is the case, I might have just the recipe.
