Thanks for mentioning the shitake flavour spreading to the entire dish. DH isn't a fan of mushrooms, but doesn't mind a bit. When I make this, I will try to remember to use it in a side dish. That way I won't ruin an entire meal for DH, if he hates the pervasiveness of the shitake flavour.
Keep me posted. Im curious to see how it works out for you.

I will try to remember. I won't be doing anything new with that many steps for a while. I'm too busy and stressed for another week or two.

Thanks, clearly not. While I may have “some” oak in the yard, most of it is either cedar or pine. Any suggestions on what I can do with those?

Off the top of my head, not sure.
Here is a link to the place I get my mushroom stuff.

https://www.fieldforest.net/category/growing-outdoors

This link is to the " Growing Mushrooms Outdoors" section of the website. They provide a list of which tree, substrate is best for which mushroom.

Ive also contacted them through e-mail with a few questions, and they were quick to reply and helpful. They would know better than me, as all my knowledge comes from there website.

OK - hereīs a completely insane idea - but perhaps not quite as insane as I thought to begin with.
Use Marmite, instead of going to all the trouble of making oyster sauce.
Firstly, itīs definitely got that umami flavour, no doubt.
Secondly, itīs vegan.

I like Marmite, but it tastes nothing like oyster sauce. I don't care if it is vegan. I just found a recipe that sounded reasonable and happens to be vegan. I might put some fish sauce in my oyster sauce substitute.

Other reasons I won't be using Marmite: it's not easily available here, and certainly not from the places I get my groceries delivered from. And, it contains "vegetable extract". Until I know for sure that that isn't a non-fermented soy product, I'm not going to eat it.
