  • 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
  • 8 ounce can bamboo shoots drained and diced
  • 4 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms diced
  • 1 stalk green onion chopped


  • Cook the noodles or rice according to package instructions. Drain.
  • In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, dark soy sauce, regular soy sauce, vinegar, five spice powder and brown sugar. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
