I love mustard stems! I don't mind the slight bitterness from the stems, that's what makes it very nice! A delicious stir-fry, one that I would definitely enjoy with rice!
Thanks for sharing with CYB!

Hi Joyce, it is indeed a lovely vegetarian dish with rice. I love it very much.

Kimmy, somehow even though mustard stems are bitter, I love it! I normally just stir fry them with garlic and eat with sambal belacan. Your version with mushrooms is even more delicious!

Hi Phong Hong, I supposed any vegetables cooked whichever way are good if served immediately.
