I'm trying to make stir-fried pea sprouts as seen this photo), but without the mushrooms.
I used this kind of pea sprouts:
First I wash and soak them in salt water for 15 mins. I know that I mustn't overcook these pea shoots. 2nd I turn my stainless steel pan to high heat. 3rd I add oil and Shaoxing wine. 4th I add the pea shoots to the pan, and stir fry for under 30 seconds.
But they're too stiff/starchy to even chew. When I chew them, they turn into lumps that I can't swallow.
Is the kind of sprouts the problem? Are another kind of sprouts sold in Hong Kong?
