  • Shiitake mushrooms: A classic choice for stir-fries, providing a meaty texture and a smoky, earthy flavor.
  • Oyster mushrooms: They have a delicate texture and a mild taste, making them perfect for any stir-fry.
  • Straw mushrooms: Commonly used in Asian cuisines, these have a unique texture and flavor profile, perfect for stir-frying. They’re tender yet slightly chewy and have a mild, slightly earthy flavor that doesn’t overpower other flavors.

Top-view of ingredients for pork with oyster sauce stir-fry recipe: pork, water, mushrooms, chilies, garlic, onion, black soy sauce, golden mountain sauce, sugar, white pepper, and oyster sauce.
  • Pork – Pork is the main protein, and it goes great with the oyster sauce-infused stir-fry sauce. Pork tenderloin is a great choice. Pork shoulder, sliced thinly, can be a good alternative.
  • Green onions – Adds color and a fresh, mild onion flavor.
  • Mushroom – Feel free to add more or less mushrooms to taste. I used straw mushroom, but you can use other types suited for mushroom stir-fry dishes.
  • Chilies – In this recipe for pork with oyster sauce, I used large Thai chilies known as prik chi fa. These are not only about the spice, but also about adding color and chili flavor.
  • Garlic – The pungent base of stir-fried pork with oyster sauce, adds a punch of flavor that enhances the overall taste. Feel free to add more garlic to taste.
  • Onion – Brings a natural sweetness and a delightful crunchy texture.
  • Golden mountain sauce – Golden mountain sauce, a staple Thai seasoning sauce, brings a unique savory flavor with just that bit of extra compared to regular soy sauce.
  • Dark soy sauce – Gives a darker color and a slightly sweet soy flavor. Dark soy is a key ingredient for both flavor and giving an appealing glaze to the pork.
  • White pepper – Perfect for adding a subtle heat without overpowering the dish.
  • Oyster sauce – Oyster sauce is one of the key ingredients. Make sure to use a high-quality sauce. Lesser qualities can be overly salty, which can overpower the flavor balance.
  • White sugar – White sugar balances the savory and slightly spicy flavors, adding a gentle sweetness that rounds out the flavors. Thai food is all about creating that perfect flavor balance, so make sure to taste-test before serving and adjust to your taste.
  • Water – Essential for creating the right consistency of the stir-fry sauce.
  • Oil – Use a neutral oil with high smoke point suited for stir-frying, like canola or vegetable oil.
