CHINESE Moo Shu Pork (1-CLICK RECIPE)
Moo Shu Pork is a seasoned meat and vegetable stir-fry dish of Northern Chinese origin which first appeared in American restaurants in the 1960’s, soon becoming a staple for American Chinese cuisine. Very traditional Moo Shu Pork consists of pork tenderloin strips, cucumber, wood ear mushrooms and enoki mushrooms, however, this great dish has been adapted and modified over the years to suit various preferences and taste buds.
It’s not uncommon for some cooks to slice up some of their favourite vegetables and add them to the wok for Moo Shu Pork. Our recipe sticks closely to most traditional ingredients and is packed with fragrant seasoning ingredients such as fresh garlic, ginger, soy sauce and shao-hsing wine.
Moo Shu pork is also traditionally served with peking pancakes, a soft savoury pan fried pancake typically served with peking duck. They are also occasionally called spring pancakes. Just before rolling and serving, these pancakes are given a light drizzling of hoisin sauce for a wonderful flavour to taste. Although peking or spring pancakes are the perfect pairing for Moo Shu Pork, they can be time consuming to prepare. Therefore we recommend cooking these ahead of time and even freezing them until you’re ready to use them. Another option is to simply enjoy your Moo Shoo Pork stir fry with rice when these pancakes aren’t available or when you want to save on time.
*This dish can sometimes become water due to high density ingredients such as cucumbers, hence why we skipped this ingredient. This may cause the pancakes this stir fry is served with to become soggy or even break.
