Snow Peas With Mushrooms

This is a simple Chinese dish with very few ingredients, but it tastes good! 

Fresh Snow Peas--about 3 cups  (Wash them, and remove the stem and stringy part.)

Fresh mushrooms, washed and thinly sliced --about 2 cups

Two cloves of garlic, minced

Combine the following:

3 TB oyster flavor sauce

2 tsp light soy sauce

Salt to taste

Heat a wok and add 2-4 tablespoons of oil.  Cook the mushrooms until they start to soften, stir frying constantly.  Add more oil if the pan gets too dry.  Add the peas and stir fry for a few minutes.  You want the peas to still have some crunch to them when you eat them, so don't overcook.  Add the garlic and cook another 30 seconds or so.  Add the soy sauce mixture and stir fry until the vegetables are evenly coated, and the sauce has had a chance to heat up.  Serve while hot!  If you aren't going to eat right away, I recommend you keep it in an oven safe dish in the oven on warm.
