Easy Mu Shu Pork Wraps (Some assembly required)

Easy Mu Shu Pork Wraps (Some assembly required)


 
I’m sure that if you have visited a Chinese restaurant, you have seen Moo Shu Pork or Mu Shu Pork on the menu. I would call it the original stir-fry wrap. It is meat (specifically pork), scrambled eggs, and vegetables rolled up in a mandarin style pancake.
 
This traditional Chinese dish was introduced to America in the 1960’s and has been a staple ever since. The origin of the words Mu Shu or Moo Shu is a descriptive term for the Sweet Osmanthus, an ornamental tree that produces small and fragrant yellow and white blossoms. The blossoms look like the scambled eggs used in the recipe.
 
The traditional mu shu was served on a Mandarin pancake, but many North American Chinese restaurants now substitute Mexican style flour tortillas as the wrap. And so am I.
 
One of the other ingredients used in a mu shu pork wrap was day lily buds.Those are pretty hard to come by. We are substituting sliced cabbage. I bought a pack of cole-slaw ingredients to use in this recipe. Chinese restaurants also use sliced cabbage in this recipe.
 
Actually you can use about any kind of vegetables in this recipe. You can get dried wood ear mushrooms at an oriental grocery store, but you don’t have one in your town, just use regular mushrooms and skip step 1 of this recipe.
 
The sauce that use in cooking the pulled pork and green onions in is a teriyaki hoisin sauce. You can substitute your favorite oriental sauce for this recipe. Just about every grocery store that I know of has and international food section and should be able to pick us a workable sauce from that section.
 
If you don’t have any pulled pork, just cook some pork chops in some water and slice or chop it finely.
 
I did publish a recipe for crock pot pulled pork on the MyPigMeUp website November 18, 2012. You can use that recipe if you have time.
Well here we go with this recipe and its 12 steps.
 
Twelve steps! Whoa! That’s scary!
