So glad to find this recipe. It was wonderful, I couldn't find bamboo shoots (there was a lead warning on the one variety from China), so i sliced carrots to mimic them. Glad I finally was able to use some of the black vinegar I've had for a while! No lily buds, either, sadly. So I'm sure this doesn't make for authenticity, but hey, it was a good riff.
This recipie is out of this world!!!! I used mixed wild mushrooms instead and I didn’t use the flower buds...I made it 3 days ago and I am preparing an other batch now... It taste like the ones in restaurants.
