For the rice

  1. Finely chop the garlic and ginger and put them into a bowl.
  2. Add the soy, mirin, honey (or sugar) and rice wine vinegar to the bowl and mix well.
  3. Slice the mushrooms into strips and add them into the bowl with the teriyaki sauce and coat everything well.
  4. Heat some of the vegetable oil in a pan adding in 1/3 of the mushrooms at a time, repeat this 3 times and set aside in a bowl as you go, there should be excess teriyaki sauce in the first bowl.
  5. Once all of the mushrooms have been fried add all of them back into the pan with the excess sauce and simmer on a low heat for around 5 minutes, the sauce should begin to bubble and reduce.
  6. Pour the mushrooms back into a bowl and allow them to cool completely in the fridge along with the rice.
