Moo Shu Pork

November 2, 2010

Moo Shu Pork is a typical stir-fried dish in China. Now, it’s a staple dish at most Chinese restaurants. It’s made with pork, green onions, mushrooms, and scrambled eggs, all rolled into small, thin pancakes instead of being served over rice. But who has time to make pancakes? I found using flour tortillas work just as well. Just heat the tortillas until warm. I used to order this dish all the time. I would slather hoisin sauce on each pancake and carefully wrap a green scallion and the pork and egg mixture into the tortilla and roll it up. Kind of like a Chinese version of a burrito. This one has much less sodium and fat by using lean pork cutlets and veggies as filling. Not to mention, this is also a one pot meal! Delicious and filling and great for leftovers the next day. If you want an even healthier take on this dish, use butter lettuce leaves instead of the tortillas.
