Pork with po-hoi-hom(Vietnamese coriander) and bamboo shoots

Po-hoi-hom is a spice plant whose leaves are used in cooking by Tai-khamti and Tai-khamyang community. Po-hoi-hom may not be available in other parts of Assam. As my mother belongs to Tai-Khamyang community,  I have got the opportunity to taste their cuisines and recipes since childhood. As I google, I found similarly of this plant with Vietnamese coriander(Persicaria odorata). Pork with po-hoi-hom and bamboo shoots is a Tai-khamyang style pork recipe which I cooked Today. Serve this pork recipe as a side dish with steamed rice.
