- 8 oz Bamboo shoots either pre-boiled fresh or canned
- 2 Green onion sliced garnish - optional
Add ground pork, garlic, ginger, white pepper, sugar or sugar alternative, light and dark sauce (or exchange with tamari sauce if need to keep gluten-free), sesame oil, Shaoxing wine or cooking sherry and stir well. Set aside
If using fresh bamboo, make sure that you have peeled and boiled it prior to using it in this stirfry. If using canned bamboo, open the can and drain.
In a wok or large frying pan, add your cooking oil and chili flakes just until aromatic. Add your pork and stir fry until golden brown and no longer pink in a hot pan. Add your bamboo and stir fry for 1-2 minutes or until the flavors have had a chance to mingle and the bamboo are hot. Add your chopped green onions, toss and serve.
Enjoy your Spicy Pork and Bamboo Stir Fry alone or with rice or cauliflower rice if doing the low carb thing.
Feel free to use canned bamboo shoots in the recipe.
You can exchange the ground pork with ground chicken, beef, turkey, lamb or even seared tofu.
If you like it spicier add more chili flakes or add in crushed Sichuan Chili peppers.
If you like it mild, you can even leave out the chili flakes or add in a very small amount to suit your desired heat level.
