Though I made this moo shu pork recipe for 2 as a delicious way to use leftover hoisin sauce, it can easily be adapted for larger groups and makes a fun party food.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat cooking oil in a square Japanese omelet pan or small skillet over medium heat. Pour beaten egg into the skillet and spread evenly. Cook until just set, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board lined with a paper towel to cool.

  • Sprinkle pork with salt, black pepper, and Sichuan pepper. Set aside.

  • Place cloud ear mushrooms in a bowl and cover with warm water. Place noodles in a separate bowl and cover with warm water. Let mushrooms and noodles soak until reconstituted and soft, about 5 minutes.

  • Drain mushrooms and slice into thin strips. Drain noodles and cut into shorter lengths.

  • Heat sesame oil in a frying pan or wok over medium heat. Add pork and stir-fry until it changes color, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and noodles and cook 1 minute more. Swirl in oyster sauce and soy sauce and stir-fry until evenly coated, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a small plate.

  • Place scallions, cabbage, and cooked egg in individual serving dishes.

  • Combine hoisin sauce, ginger, sake, soy sauce, and garlic in a small bowl.

  • Place moo shu pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and warm in the microwave for about 45 seconds.

  • Place moo shu pancakes in the center of the table surrounded by meat, vegetables, and sauce. Moo shu is eating by taking a moo shu pancake in your hand, spread the inner side with sauce, then add pork mixture, egg, and vegetables as desired, wrap, and eat.

Cook's Note:

Ideally, this recipe calls for moo shu pancakes or Chinese crepes (like for Peking duck), but you can substitute thin soft-shell tortillas, spring roll wrappers, or even pita bread.
