    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 14 ounces bamboo shoots, cut in thin strips
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 fresh red chile, seeded and finely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes
    • 3 ounces ground pork (or substitute any ground meat such as turkey,beef or even veggie crumbles)
    • 1 teaspoon shaoxing wine or 1 teaspoon sherry wine
    • salt, to taste
    • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons chicken stock or 3 tablespoons water
    • 3 thinly sliced scallions, green parts only
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 3 tablespoons peanut oil


    1. 1
      Heat a wok over medium heat with just a smear of peanut oil; add the bamboo shoots and stir-fry for a few minutes until they are dry and a little fragrant; set aside.
    2. 2
      Increase the temperature to high and add the remaining peanut oil; add the garlic and fresh and dried chiles and stir-fry briefly until fragrant. Tip in the pork and continue to stir-fry until it's cooked through and chages color, splashing in the wine as you go and adding salt to taste.
    3. 3
      Return the bamboo shoots to the wok, and when everything's hot and sizzly, add the vinegar, soy sauce and more salt to taste. Add the stock or water and stir for 1-2 minutes longer to allow the flavors to penetrate the shoots. Toss in the scallions at the end of the cooking time.
    4. 4
      Turn off the heat, stir in the sesame oil and serve.

      WOW is all i can say. This was shockingly good given the simple ingredients. Bamboo shoots have never done a thing for me, but this time i bought vacuum packed in water fresh(er) shoots. Perhaps its the lack of added taste by the can, but they were fragrant and very good. The again. most chinese dishes with just soy, rice vinegar, a tsp of chinese wine and some hot pepper would be bland to my jaded tastes but this was fantastic. Don't let this recipe slip past you. if you use the freshest best ingredients its a wonder. (oh and i just minced a chicken thigh in the processor since i didnt have pork)

      Really good, definitely a repeat! Only downside I found was that it was a little too salty....wouldn't add any extra salt again. Used low sodium soy and served with rice, tasty! Loved the little heat kick, was perfect!

      This was a really good dish. I used veggie crumbles (which were really good in it), less oil (just a teaspoon) and chili (so it would not be too hot for us), and more soy and vinegar. This served two over brown rice. Great flavors!
