I used swiss chard as my "greens" because that's what I have growing in my garden. I know it would taste as good and even better with any "choy" you can get at your grocer, farmer's market or garden.
Here are the ingredients:
One can sukiyaki no tomo (it has bean thread [a.k.a. long rice], button mushrooms, bamboo shoots)
two packs long rice (or more, or none. up to you), soaked in hot water
1/2 cup dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in hot water
2-3 cups chicken or vegetable broth (I used chicken broth)
1/3 cup oyster or mushroom sauce
1-2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1 onion, sliced lengthwise
10 swiss chard leaves, chopped small
2 cloves garlic (optional)
2 slices fresh ginger (optional)
I didn't have garlic or ginger. Believe me when I say my fridge is bare. So I sauted an onion in my pot (with a little pam sprayed on the bottom. a water saute would have been fine too). If I had the garlic and ginger I would have added it at the same time with the onion. When the onion was almost translucent I added the swiss chard, not really worrying about the stems versus leaves. Once that cooked down a bit I added the long rice (water drained out) and mushrooms (water squeezed out), the can of sukiyaki (also drained). In other words, EVERYTHING ELSE. And then I just let it simmer on the stove for about 15-20 minutes. I think the longer the better because then the mushrooms can soak in the flavors better.
Taste it. If it's not flavorful enough, add some more oyster or mushroom sauce and/or tamari. Season to taste is the key to everything. I think a few red pepper flakes would have been good. Or maybe even some mirin.
It was quick. And easy.
