  • 2 ounces dried wooden ear mushrooms
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound lean pork, julienned
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces straw mushrooms, washed, trimmed and sliced
  • 4 ounces bamboo shoots

Soak the mushrooms in the warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and julienne the mushrooms. In a wok, over medium heat, add the oil. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
