1 pint Shiitake Mushrooms

1 tbls Sesame seeds
2 cups Chicken Stock

While cooking stir fry mixture drop soba noodles into boiling water. They cook very quickly, about 1 ½ min. You want the noodle to be al dente, like regular pasta. Strain and keep on the side.
Now add chicken stock and tamari. Cook for another 5 min or until mixture starts to boil. Slowly whisk in slurry until mixture thickens to the consistency you like. Portion soba noodles onto 2 plates then pour stir fry mixture over noodles. Sprinkle sesame seeds over dish.
