Potato & Shiitake Stir-fried with Mayonnaise

Sauteed potatoes and Shiitake with mayonnaise! As the name suggests, it is simply stir-fried potatoes and rehydrated dried Shiitake with mayonnaise. The aroma of dried Shiitake goes well with the fragrance of potatoes, just as dried Shiitake go well with Takikomi-Gohan (cooked rice). Saute bacon and garlic until fragrant, then saute boiled potatoes and rehydrated dried Shiitake. Seasoning is 1 Tbsp light soy sauce and 2 Tbsp mayonnaise. I've added lotus root in the photo, but you can try many other ideas.

Ingredients (4 servings) (30 minutes)

  • 4 Potatoes (cut into half-moons)
  • 4 pieces Dried Shiitake
  • 80g Lotus root (boiled and canned)
  • 4 strips (34g) Bacon
  • 1 clove Garlic (thinly sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Soy sauce-A
  • 2 Tbsp Mayonnaise -A


Rehydrate the dried Shiitake with water, cut off the stems, and slice.
Thinly slice the garlic and lotus root, then cut the bacon into 2cm strips.
Peel the potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise, and slice them into 5cm thick half-moons. Then, boil them for a short time. (You may use a microwave instead)
Heat up a frying pan, add olive oil, and stir fry the sliced garlic until aromatic.
Add the bacon, Shiitake which have been lightly squeezed, lotus root, and potatoes, and stir fry. Finally, season with A and serve.


Dried Shiitake mushrooms should be rehydrated in cold water to make them sweeter and tastier without any messy taste.
