You have 50/50 chance getting not shiitake mushroom but some weird white mushrooms
One of the nicest mushrooms & great value
one of our favourite mushrooms. Tesco's ones are the best value compared with other supermarkets, so we buy these regularly. they are always nice and clean, not too much soil on them. good for Asian cooking eg stirfries, but I have also just pan fried them lightly and they taste great
UK grown with a distinct flavor
Such a distinct, tasty flavour. We've used these in a few dishes, they work particularly well with an Asian greens recipe, with some Pak Choi and a few other veg as a side. I've used the stalks either in meals or boiled up in a brother to extract the flavour for soups or stock. Surprised to hear they are grown in the UK too!
Not as good as they used to be
These used to be great and you’d get a lot of small to medium sized ones. Whether it is the time of year but I’m now getting about 5-6 large stemed mushrooms in a box. I usually put the stalks out unless I can use them for a soup but they are a bit woody.
Check what you are getting!
These often have much of the weight made up by the stalks which are really not digestible.
