  • Heat up the wok and lightly brown the garlic and ginger with oil.
  • Throw in the mushrooms, stir for 1 minute and season with the sesame oil, oyster sauce, Shaoxing rice wine, light soy sauce, sugar and chicken powder.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and mushroom water, then bring the liquid to a boil.
  • As soon as it boils, layer the top with Chinese cabbage and lower the heat to a simmer.
  • Add the black moss as the final layer and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Optional: For a thicker sauce, mix 2 tbsp potato starch with 1/2 cup water until well combined. Bring the heat back up and slowly pour the slurry in, stirring gently.
