Oriental Style Ground Pork

Look for firm, fleshy mushrooms with no discoloration or bruises. To store, keep refrigerated, unwashed, in a paper bag, ventilated package or plastic bag punched with holes, for up to 5 days. If damp, wrap mushrooms in paper towels before storing. Use as soon as possible for best flavor
