Bamboo shoot for lunch


  Two more days (not looking forward,but inevitable) all 3 of our kids will be going to school,2 of them are returnees and our little one is a newbie,she will start kindergarten (sob,sooobbbb…….),the  anticipation of being home alone (well not really, Boyfriend will be stuck with me)  makes me feel old and an under achiever mom (where have the times gone? that’s a song I know)  that’s why lately I have been making sure that the kids always get the best tasting and best looking meals I can come up with.

Today here’s one of the most  good-looking meal I served the gang.


                                         1.1 package of sliced pre-cooked bamboo shoots (available at Asian store).
                                                                               2.2 pounds ground pork,pan-fried.
3.2 eggs.
4.1/4 cup soy sauce (measurements depends on how salty you want your omelet to be).
5.ground black pepper.
6.cooking oil,separated.
8.onion, diced.
9.1/4 cup sugar cane vinegar.
10.sugar optional.
11.2 tbsp. corn starch.


1.Pan fry ground pork till brown.
2.Add garlic and onion to browned pork.
3.Add bamboo shoots,let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
4.Pour vinegar,soy sauce,black pepper and sugar,let it simmer till liquid is reduced to your liking..
5.Remove from heat,let it cool and keep it in the fridge over night (I know this recipe requires patience haha,you need overnight for the flavors to set in).
Now the next day,you’ll be ready to make your omelet,
6.Drain remaining liquid from the mixture.
7.Beat eggs,add corn starch and pour mixture over your bamboo shoots.
8.Now you’re ready to make your version of bamboo shoot omelets.

Have fun making your version,Good luck.

P.S. I cut my hair really really short.

Thanx for visiting my blog,xoxo.
