Place a teaspoon of grape seed oil in a wok or deep pan over high heat. Add pork and cook until almost opaque. Add eggplant and stir-fry until skin becomes lightly brown and blistered, allowing the interior to soften and get a slight sear. Remove from heat and set aside in a bowl.
Place another teaspoon of oil in the wok heat over medium heat. Add the curry paste carefully, as it will cause the oil to spit. Sauté over medium heat until fragrant, approximately 30 seconds. Mix in half of the coconut milk and let it simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the lemongrass, fish sauce, sugar substitute, and remaining coconut milk, and bring to a boil. Add the bamboo shoots, cooked pork, eggplant, and bell pepper. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes until softened a bit. Stir in basil and chilies and remove from heat. Serve over cauliflower rice with fresh cilantro and lime wedges on the side. Remove lemongrass stalks before serving.
Ready to serve!
