 NOTES : You may substitute canned sprouts. Rinse, drain and cover with cold
 water in a bowl  and refrigerate for about an hour. Rinse and pat dry.
 If you can't find bamboo shoots use a can of water chestnuts, drained and
 chopped.
 You can also add 1 finely shredded carrot for color, add with the pork and
 vegetables. I freeze extras and heat in the microwave  for a snack.
 1 T Cornstarch blended with 1 T water can be substituted for the egg wash.
 Peanut oil tolerates higher frying heats than regular corn or vegetable oil.
 Use oil of your choice.
