Stir-fried Pork with Bamboo Shoots and Dried Oysters

Winnie’s second dish is a very versatile dish which is a very Chinese homey dish. Winnie’s Stir-fried Pork with Bamboo Shoots can be substituted with many other ingredients like sweet peppers, wood-ears, green onions, ‘Shiitake mushrooms, etc. This is another dish which goes well with steam rice.



  • 1 cup or more boiled bamboo shoots
  • 1/2 lb pork, cut into thin slices
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons soysauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 shallots, thinly slice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 pieces of dried oyster, soaked and boiled to soften
  • 1/4 cup water

IMG_0748_edited-1Marinate the thin slices of pork with soy sauce, sugar and cornstarch for 20 minutes.
IMG_0750_edited-1In a wok, heat oil and stir fried the shallots and garlic until fragrant.
IMG_0751_edited-1Add in the marinated pork and stir-fried until the pork changed colour.
IMG_0752_edited-1Add in the boiled oysters and bamboo shoots. Add water to cover the dish and bring the dish to a boil. Reduce the heat and cover and simmer until done. If you are using bamboo shoots and oysters, you might need to simmer longer. However, if you are using sweet peppers or green onions, then the simmering time will be shorter.

Winnie, thank you for sharing these very homey dishes with us. I’m sure these will be a staple of my family.

    Dried seafoods… So lush. I’m gonna try it, but I think I’ll add sliced wood ear mushrooms as well.

    Adding soaked black fungus as well is a good option IMO, dried oysters takes quite some time to tenderise.

    Re my earlier, should of course be “take” instead of “takes”, no reason why unpeeled straw mushrooms can’t be added additionally.

    Howie, best to use latest version of Firefox browser to circumvent problem.
