NOW BE CAREFUL – remove all flammable items from around and above pan, hide children under the table, etc.

- pour serious amount of brandy to the pan (at list one “medium rice bowl” or big glass – 0,2-0,3l maybe more)

- hold the pan in extended arm(s), and move it little aside to let fire from stove burn the brandy

- let the fire subside, and now You have nice sauce

- add black mushrooms, and simmer it until meat is almost ready (edible but alittle hard), if there sauce would evaporate before that – just add a little boiled water (hot) and continue cooking.

- now add white mushrooms, set high heat, and cover the pan (wok), let it cook for about 3 minutes on high heat, then stir, set low heat and continue simmering until meat is as soft it can be “cut” with the sticks.
