    Make several cuts along the length of the leek, then chop finely. Cut the stems off the shiitake mushrooms, discarding the hard ends. Finely chop the rest of the stems.

  • Step 2

    Combine the ground pork, the chopped leek, the chopped shiitake stems, and the seasoning ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Divide into four equal portions.

    Step 3

    Sprinkle a little salt and flour on the insides of the mushroom caps. Stuff with the meat mixture, forming an even mound in each cap.

  • Step 4

    Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over low heat. Add the stuffed mushroom caps, meat side down, and cook for about 2 minutes. When the meat is browned, turn the mushroom caps over, cover with a lid and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Transfer to a serving plate and top each with a dab of minced ginger.

    Tip: If you dust the insides of the mushroom caps with flour, the filling will be less likely to fall out. Form he filling into a nice rounded shape.
