In a medium bowl, toss together the beef, rice wine, soy sauce, egg, cornstarch, and allow it to marinate for 1 hour. Set aside.

Heat a ¼ cup of oil in the wok over medium heat. Cook the Sichuan peppercorns for 20~30 seconds until the aroma comes out. Remove the peppercorns. Add dried red chili, and stir fry until they start to turn light brown. Remove the chili.

On a cutting board, chop the fried peppercorn and red chili into coarsely. Set aside.

Heat a 1/2 cup of oil in the wok over medium heat. Add bamboo shoots, and fry for 30 seconds. Drain and set aside.

In the same wok, add 1 tbsp minced garlic, garlic sprouts, A Choy, and stir fry for 1 minute. Add bean sprout, stir, and cook for 1 minute. Transfer the cooked vegetables to a large ceramic pot. Set aside.

In the wok under medium heat, add 3 tbsp minced garlic, ginger, green onions, stir, and mix well. Add the spicy bean sauce/paste, stir, and let the sauce cook in the oil for about 2 minutes. This will give the oil a bright red color. It’s important to control the heat––too low and the oil won't turn that vibrant red color; too high and you’ll burn everything!

Once the oil takes on a bright red color, add chicken stock and sugar. Turn up the heat to high, stirring, and let the liquid come to a boil. Add the cooked bamboo shoots, and bring to boil.

Next, add soy sauce, sugar, white pepper, marinated beef, and stir slowly to separate the pieces, still using low heat. Add cornstarch and water mixture to thicken the sauce. Quickly turn off the heat once all the beef pieces turn opaque.

In a small saucepan, heat the last 3 tbsp of oil until shimmering. Pour the heated oil over the spices in a very thin stream––you should get a good sizzle
