BBQ Pulled Pork Burger Recipe from Two River Mushroom

Introducing the BBQ Vegan Pulled Pork Burger featuring savory oyster mushrooms as the star ingredient! To ensure maximum flavor, we begin by seasoning the oyster mushrooms with a homemade spice mix, elevating their taste profile before roasting them in the oven. The final touch involves pan-frying the mushrooms with a delectable homemade BBQ sauce, resulting in juicy, mouthwatering perfection.

After completing these preparations, you have the flexibility to cook the oyster mushrooms using various methods. For this recipe, we opted to roast the pulled mushrooms in the oven, enhancing their texture and infusing them with the rich flavors of our signature spice blend.

Roasting them in the oven
Once you are ready with the preparations, you can choose different methods for cooking oyster mushrooms. We roasted the pulled mushrooms in the oven and seasoned them with a homemade spice mix for this recipe.

  1. Preheat the oven to 390 Fahrenheit (ca. 199 °C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone baking sheet. Spread the shredded mushrooms as well as you can in one layer.
  3. Add seasoning and a bit of oil. Mix until they are well-coated.

Roast them for 20-25 minutes. Depending on the size of your strips, you may need short, or longer baking time. We recommend checking it halfway and also flipping and stirring them to make sure all edges will be crispy at the end like on the below photo.

    • You don’t need to wash them. If you still see some dirt, wipe it clean with a cloth and cut off the tip of the stem.
    • Take two forks and pierce the king oyster mushrooms, with one at its neck, right below the cap.
    • Use the other fork and pull it along the stem. Push it gently so it pierces the mushroom. Repeat as long as you have a stem to shred.
    • Caps are not easy to shred with a fork. We recommend cutting them as thin as you can with a knife.
