Braised bamboo shoot with chicken wings


My sister brought me some fresh bamboo shoots from her MIL house, i am glad that i can cook with these fresh bamboo shoots as those selling in wet market has some kind of awful smell...














Braised bamboo shoot with chicken wings

Ya, one thing i need to clarify here. Recently i just realized that i should not write "dark soy sauce" in my recipe, actually i was meant " thick caramel sauce" as I just direct translated from Chinese 黑酱油. They are both difference sauces. I think only Malaysia and Singapore use widely of  "thick caramel sauce" but US & Europe hardly find this thick caramel sauce. This is the thick caramel sauce i use:-

I've never eaten bamboo shoot. No idea how it taste like, but I've heard how it smells like if the bamboo is not fresh.

I've eaten once from a Malay stall. It smells like "pee". Hence I have no idea how the fresh one taste like.

I love bamboo shoot, but after since we experienced our neighbour giving us some bamboo shoot which were not very fresh and caused the whole house smelly, no one is willing to taste bamboo shoot at home anymore, ha ha ha. It's really stink if not fresh, I still love bammboo shoot though.

Your chicken looks delicious. This is perfect with a bowl of steamed rice. I like bamboo shoot and you are right, it is not often that we can find the really fresh good ones from the market.

I love bamboo shoots, esp with thai curry. I usually used the canned version:(

Jane Chew said...

I always eat bamboo shoot with pork but not chicken. This sounds good! Btw i use the same dark soy sauce as u :)

ICook4Fun said...

It has been a long while since I last had fresh bamboo shoots. My grandma used to cook this so often for us as we had bamboo plants at the back of our house.

My Little Space said...

Sonia, I'm not sure why ppl complaining about the smell of the shoots. It tastes so sweet and crunchy. I think the one they had are not properly washed or cleaned. According to the lady at the market place, the shoots need a serious washing ... just like those pig stomach.:o)
Good night,
Kristy

Hi Sonia! I think Japanese soy sauce won't make these chicken and bamboo shoot this nice brown even we add more soy sauce. I have boiled bamboo shoot in my fridge that I haven't figure it out how to cook yet. Your recipe looks really delicious!!

Yee Er said...

LimeCake said...

This is such a homey dish! It looks delicious!

Biren @ Roti n Rice said...

This is such a homey and delicious dish. It helps to lightly boil the bamboo shoots first to get rid of the smell.

Pete said...

I am not familiar in cooking with bamboo shoots...but this looks nice!

tigerfish said...

So homey and so good with steamed rice! I have heard about this thick caramel sauce back in Singapore too - quite good to use for braising meat indeed.

A humble Taiping kaki said...

Nice one. Long time didn't try this stuff.

I love the texture of bamboo shoots. It's not easy to get the fresh on in Subang, so I usually resort to the canned ones. I agree with you the one sold in our wet market has a kind of strong smell.
