White mushroom with black pepper. Peel and wash it, if they're small, don't slice it, but if they're big, cut them into four pieces, you might have to slice them too, for I've seen one the size of a grate. Wash it in water, put it into a pot or a jar, add some salt, put it on the fire. If the water is not enough, add some water from boiling beef, and if you have none of that, clean water will do, then add some butter, parsley leaves and cook it; once cooked, add some black pepper and ginger, if you're cooking it from boiled beef water, don't add butter.
