  • 40 g Dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 120 g Chinese sausages approx. 4
  • 1/2 kg Choy sum approx. 2 medium bunches
  • Boiling water
  • 1.2 kg Skinless chicken breast approx. 4 diced
  • Olive oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp Dark mushroom soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Light soy sauce
  • 2 Garlic cloves crushed
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Carrot julienned
  • 3 tbsp Cornflour
  • 4 tbsp Red wine
  • 8 Eggs
  • ½ Bunch coriander finely chopped to garnish
  • Cooked white rice


  • Prepare shiitake mushrooms by placing them in a heatproof bowl and soak with boiling water. Allow to sit for 15 minutes, drain and squeeze out any excess water with your hands. Roughly chop and set aside.
  • Place Chinese sausages in a heat-proof bowl and microwave on high heat for 40 seconds to soften. Let cool and thinly slice. Set aside.
  • Remove the bottom stem of the choy sum and wash individual leaves, drain and set aside.
  • In a large frypan, add oil, chicken, ½ tbsp dark soy sauce (reserve remaining 1 tbsp for sauce), garlic, and salt/pepper to taste. Fry on high heat until chicken has browned and is almost cooked through.
  • Reduce heat to medium and stir in shiitake mushrooms, Chinese sausages, carrot, and choy sum. Continue cooking for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining cornflour, the remaining 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, 1 tbsp light soy sauce and red wine in a bowl. Add 2 ½ cups cold water and mix well.
  • Add sauce to stir fry and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  • In a separate frypan, fry eggs in a little oil to desired texture seasoned with salt and pepper to taste.
  • To serve, sprinkle coriander in a round bowl then place fried egg face down at the base, add stir fry mixture, and top with white rice, pressing firmly to compact. Place a flat serving plate over the bowl and carefully flip over so the bowl is now face down on top of the plate. Serve immediately and reveal ‘magic’ by gently removing the bowl.


  • If preparing the meal in advance, keep sauce aside until ready to heat and serve as the texture may become too thick.
  • Try adding prawns, or sliced baby corn for extra flavour.

Bon appétit!
