  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Moo Shu Pork Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless pork chops sliced into very thin strips
  • 4 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs whisked
  • 1 14- ounce bag coleslaw
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions thinly sliced green parts only
  • Sesame seeds
  • for serving: flour tortillas lettuce leaves, rice
  • toppings: hoisin sauce thinly-sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

Marinade:

  • Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and stir until combined. Divide the marinade into two equal portions.

Moo Shu Pork:

  • Add the thinly sliced pork (chicken or shrimp) to half of the marinade, and toss until evenly coated. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place a large saute pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Add the whisked eggs, and let them sit and until they are cooked into an omelet.
  • Transfer the eggs to a cutting board, and set them aside. Once slightly cooled, chop the omelet into small, thin pieces.
  • Return the pan to the stove, and increase heat to high heat.
  • Add 2 more tablespoons of oil, and using a pair of tongs lift the meat out of the marinade and transfer it to the pan into one layer. Discard the marinade.
  • Cook the pork until tender, and nicely browned, about 4-5 minutes. Then transfer to a separate plate, and set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan, along with the coleslaw, mushrooms, and half of the scallions. Saute for 2-3 minutes, or until the coleslaw begins to soften.
  • Add the reserved marinade, and toss to combine, cook 2-3 more minutes.
  • Stir in the cooked pork and chopped eggs, and toss until combined. Taste and adjust for salt, pepper, and hoisin sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining green onions.
  • Serve immediately with flour tortillas, or lettuce cups, and rice on the side.
