Chinese style Moo Shu Pork. I’ve always enjoyed Chinese food and so when this recipe presented itself and sounded yummy, I knew I had to work it into the rotation. Much to my delight it was well received by the family and will stay in rotation.
Serve it with Hoisin sauce (Chinese BBQ sauce) or Plum sauce. Flour tortillas are the wrap of choice instead of the traditional pancakes or crepes. Although a home made crepe does add a different texture and taste experience. Even a rice wrap works. I also served a side of rice with the Pork allowing the kidlets to add rice to their wraps (which they did) and loved.
To kick it up a notch I love to add some sriracha sauce. I will dish out half for the kids and toss a few good drops into whats left, for the adults.
- 2-3 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1 pork tenderloin trimmed of fat, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
- 1-2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 lb mushrooms we used button, but any will work, sliced thin
- 2 tbsp fresh ginger peeled & minced
- 1/2 head napa cabbage shredded
- 5 green onions thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup soya sauce
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- olive oil or canola oil
- salt & pepper
- flour tortillas/wraps small size
- hoisin or plum sauce
- cooked white rice optional
- In a nonstick pan on medium, heat a little oil. Add your eggs and without stirring cook until set. Transfer to cutting board, let cool off and then roll into log and slice into thin strips. Set aside.
- Place your pork strips into a bowl, season with salt, pepper and add your cornstarch, mixing well. In a clean skillet add a little more oil. Add your pork and saute until lightly browned and just undercooked. Transfer to a plate.
- If you need it add another drop of oil and pour in your mushrooms and ginger. Once the mushrooms have started to brown season with salt & pepper. Add your cabbage, green onions, soy sauce, vinegar and pork. Cook, stirring occasionally, a few more minutes or until your cabbage is wilted slightly and pork cooked through. Remove from heat and mix in your egg slices.
- Warm your tortillas on a grill, in the oven or in the microwave. To assemble put some sauce on the tortilla, add some cooked rice if you have some and a good spoonful of the moo shu pork filling. Roll up and serve with additional sauce on the side. Delish!
