1 pound noodles or rice of your choice

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons dark soy sauce (or oyster sauce)

2 teaspoon light (regular) soy sauce

1 teaspoon Chinese black vinegar (or young balsamic vinegar)

1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons cooking oil

1/2 onion, chopped

1 pound ground pork (or ground beef/chicken/turkey)

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

One 8-ounce can bamboo shoots, drained and diced

4 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, diced

1 stalk green onion, chopped


1. Cook the noodles or rice according to package instructions. Drain.

2. In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, dark soy sauce, regular soy sauce, vinegar, five spice powder and brown sugar. Set aside.

3. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. When hot, swirl in the cooking oil. Add in the onion and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the ground meat and cook for 2 minutes. Push aside the onion and ground beef to one side of the wok to create a small spot to fry the garlic. Add in the garlic and stir fry for a few seconds or until you begin smelling the garlic. Add in the bamboo shoots and mushrooms. Toss everything in the wok together.

4. Pour in the broth/soy sauce mixture and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the green onions. Serve the ground beef mixture over the noodles or rice.
