No lie, I'm not kidding. When I saw a you tube video on making shittake mushrooms taste like bacon. I had to try it for myself because I was not convinced.
Well, After trying the recipe myself. I can tell you guys it is True! Shiitake mushrooms can really taste like bacon. I'm mean real bacon. Pork! I was blown away. I see adding this to bake potatoes, salads, eggs, tofu there are so much possibilities and it's pretty simple to make. Watch the video here.
