How to Make Moo Shu Pork

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix the chicken broth, 2 T of the hoisin sauce, all of the soy sauce and cornstarch together. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 T. of the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  3. Push the mushrooms to the edges of the pan and add the remaining 1 T. oil, garlic and ginger to the center. Cook, mashing the garlic mixture with the back of a spoon, for about 30 seconds.
  4. Stack the tortillas on a plate and cover with paper towel. Heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. You just want to get them soft and hot.
  5. Stir in the cooked pork, cabbage and scallions and cook for about 1 minute.
  6. Whisk the reserved sauce to recombine and add it to the pan. Bring it to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens, about 1-2 minutes.
  7. Serve with warm torillas and remaining hoisin sauce. Enjoy!
