Place rehydrated shiitake mushrooms and soaking liquid in a large bowl and cool completely. Stir in soy sauce and crushed garlic. Add brisket and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Heat oil in a large saucepan or cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Remove brisket from marinade and pat dry with paper towel, reserving marinade. Add brisket to pan and cook, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned all over. Add reserved marinade, beef stock, lemongrass and chilli. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 3 hours or until brisket is very tender. Remove from heat and allow brisket to cool completely in cooking liquid.
Place remaining 5 dried shiitake mushrooms in a small food processor or spice grinder and process to a fine powder. Place 500 ml cooking liquid in a small saucepan with the ground shiitake mushrooms and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes or until liquid has reduced by half. Strain through a fine sieve and return liquid to a clean saucepan over low heat. Add 50 g butter, a little at a time and cook, whisking constantly, for 10 minutes or until smooth and emulsified. Remove from heat.
Remove brisket from cooking liquid and pat dry with paper towel. Heat a chargrill pan or barbecue to medium-high heat. Add brisket and baste liberally with shiitake glaze. Cook, basting and turning, for 10 minutes or until charred and caramelised. Remove from grill and place on a large serving plate. Pour over any remaining glaze, then loosely cover with foil and set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
Melt remaining 50 g butter in a frying pan over high heat. Add sliced garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant, then add mixed mushrooms and cook for 4 minutes or until softened and coloured. Using two forks, shred brisket and serve with stir-fried mushrooms, scattered with sliced chillies and coriander.
