If using fresh bamboo shoot, remove the husk from the bamboo shoot and cut into thin slices to match the bacon.
Blanch the slices in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then drain. If you are using tinned winter bamboo, simply cut into thin slices and blanch in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then drain.
Cut the chillies at an angle into thin slices , discarding the seeds and stalks.
Add the groundnut oil to a wok. Add bamboo slices and allow to sizzle. Then add the bacon, garlic, ginger, chilli flakes and fresh chilli and stir-fry until fragrant, seasoning with light soy sauce to taste.
Add the Chinese chives and stir-fry briefly until cooked. Remove from the heat, stir in the sesame oil and serve immediately with steamed rice.
