Garlic Shoots are the long stems that grow out of the Garlic bulb. Obviously they smell like Garlic and have pleasant crunchy texture. I often stir-fry Garlic Shoots with Beef or Pork, but I know many people, particularly non-Asian people, are not familiar with this vegetable. This is a very simple stir-fry you can try.


3 to 4 Servings


1 bunch Garlic Shoots *about 160g

1 teaspoon Oil
180g Bacon *cut into bite-size pieces
Salt & Black Pepper

  1. Wash Garlic Shoots, trim off the tough ends, and cut into 4-5cm pieces. Cut Bacon rashers into bite-size pieces.
  2. Heat Oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Bacon pieces until nicely browned, and transfer browned Bacon to a plate. Stir-fry Garlic Shoots for 2-3 minutes OR until cooked, season with Salt & Pepper, return the Bacon, then stir to combine.
  3. *Note: Garlic Shoots can be pre-cooked. Just blanch in salted water in a saucepan, drain well, then add to the browned Bacon.
