Water bamboo with pork
Water bamboo (also called "wild rice stem") is a typical Chinese vegetable. It looks like regular bamboo shoots, but then narrower. In fact it's really the bottom part of a specially infected rice plant. The outer parts need to be removed, since only the inside white flesh is eaten. In this dish it's sliced and stir fried with pepper and pork.
