Square Meal

I love it when you can get all your food groups in a one dish meal!

Moo Shu Pork - serves 4
Fresh Flavor Fast

4 tsp vegetable oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 pork tenderloin ~ about 1 lb, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
2 T cornstarch
1 lb shitake mushrooms, stems removed, caps thinly sliced
2 T minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 head napa cabbage, shredded
5 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
8 flour tortillas (6" size)
Hoisin sauce, for serving

1. In a large non stick skillet, heat 1 tsp oil over med heat. Add eggs, cook without stirring, until just set, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to cutting board.  When cool, roll and cut into 1/4" strips.  Set aside.

2. Place pork in medium bowl, sprinkle with cornstarch. Season with salt and pepper.  Heat remaining oil over medium high heat.  Add pork and cook 4-5 minutes - remove and set aside.

3. Add mushrooms and ginger to skillet; season with salt and pepper.  Cook 3-5 minutes.  Add cabbage, scallions, soy sauce, vinegar, egg strips, and pork.  Cook 2-3 minutes until cabbage is wilted.

4. Heat tortilla, spread on hoisin sauce, top with moo shu filling, roll and enjoy!

Note: You may need to use extra oil to avoid sticking.  Use a large pot, like one you would cook pasta in.  Allow a good hour to make this meal - seems like a long time, but it is worth it.
