Hi Deb,
I have searched and searched google and don't know where to turn. We used to live in Sacramento and we would frequently eat at a Chinese place in Elk Grove called the Royal Kitchen if I remember correctly. Anyway, they had the best vegan kung pao beef I have ever tasted. That dish and their lemon chicken fooled everyone into thinking they were eating meat. Unfortunately they closed and we moved away anyway. I asked once what the "beef" was made from because it wasn't the typical gluten or seitan substitue and he told me mushroom stem. Now he would not give much information so I was wondering if you have ever heard of mushroom stem being used for a meat substitute and what kind of mushrooms were used. I thought it might be sitake (had to spell wrong since it thought I was being profane and wouldn't post lol) but I think they are too fibrous to use in this manner. The only thing close to this that I found on google was a guy talking about using trumpet mushroom stems for meat replacement. I would love to know this secret and be able to make it at home. I really have found nothing like it since. Thanks so much!
