Introduction

Red cooked is the Chinese term for braising in soy sauce. This is one of my favorite suppers spooned over rice and eaten from a big bowl. It is an approximation of something much more authentic cooked for me as part of a traditional Chinese feast. That had mushrooms as well so there is no reason you couldn't add them here.
