Honey Bamboo Stir Fry Pork

I love bamboo, especially when they're fresh. My mom have tons of fresh bamboos preserved in a jar, but after moving away, it was hard for me to get fresh bamboos. When I lived in NC, I would have to drive about 6-7 hrs. away just to get a few jars of these delicious fresh bamboos. They wouldn't even last me a month.

I use these bamboos in my red curry noodles, in my black noodles stir fry, and in whatever I crave. Being in Hawaii now, it's hard to find them fresh so I buy the canned bamboos. I don't like them much. They have this salty taste and texture is different. However, I found a way to change it's taste. The texture, obviously, can not be changed.

1 can sliced bamboos
2 thin sliced pork chops
2 cup chopped daikons
2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced *optional*
1 Tbsp oil

Slice pork chops into bite size pieces. Pan fry them on medium heat with garlic and ginger. Add salt. Add diakons and soy sauce. Stir until sides of pork and daikons are slightly browned. Add in oyster sauce and stir. Taste and adjust with salt if needed. Dish it on a plate and set aside.

Using the same pan, add oil and turn heat onto medium. Drain out the bamboo liquid and add it to the pan. Stir for a few minutes until sides are slightly browned. Add in the honey and a pinch of salt. Stir until the honey is fully coating the bamboos. Add hoisin sauce and stir until sides are more browned. Add the pork mixture back in and stir for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy!
