I'm posting this for a request, I haven't made it yet but it's from my precious 'Madam Wong's Long-Life Chinese Cookbook' and that book hasn't failed me yet. I'm submitting the recipe pretty much as is but the first step of deep-frying could probably be stir-fried instead, as I do that with most of her other recipes.

  3. reheat 2 tablespoons oil in a wok; stir-fry bamboo shoots and scallions 1 minute.
  4. Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl; add to vegetables; bring to a boil; add beef; stir-fry quickly until thoroughly heated.
