Mou Shu Pork Wraps

    45 min

    This is a versatile recipe that you can alter to your taste. Sometimes I use cabbage and plum sauce and it works really well too. The filling is normally served in Chinese pancakes, but I prefer it in tortilla wraps.

    Took shortcuts. I wanted to pare down the time it took to make this recipe, so I purchased a bagged mix of shredded asian veggies (in the bagged salad section) instead of slicing all the vegetables myself. It worked out great, and saved loads of time I would have spent chopping. Omitted the sake, as I was feeding this to the kids, and used dried ginger powder instead of fresh. I definitely recommend using wonton wrappers instead of tortillas - they have the right "asian" texture and taste. Steam them for a few minutes before serving, or microwave a few at a time wrapped in a moist piece of kitchen roll, for 30-seconds.  -  15 Sep 2008


    I love chinese, and had some left over thing's that this recipe called for, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've never had mou shu pork before, so I can't really say if this particular recipe makes a good mou shu pork. Personally, none of us liked it. I don't know if it was the soy that's already in the Hoison sauce, and then more soy added to the recipe that did it, but it left a bitter aftertaste. Perhaps if the 2 T. of soy called for was left out, it might be passable. I used low salt soy too.  -  15 Sep 2008


    I was looking for a recipe that I could sneak in some vegetables in my husband's dinner and this is a great way to do it. Next time, I will cut the ginger in half as he said that the ginger was too overwhelming. I would also cut the pork into thin strips to have it cook faster and I would do the meat in two batches as it cooked, but didn't brown. Not a bad dish, but I think it might need some tweaking. I am just not sure how to accomplish that. Hopefully, someone else here will have great ideas to offer.  -  15 Sep 2008
