EASY MU SHU PORK LETTUCE WRAPS

This Mu Shu Pork Lettuce Wrap recipe has been a “keeper” for quite a while. It never fails to get my guys home on time–and rarin’ to eat!

Easy Mu Shu Pork Lettuce Wraps 2

3 tbsp Hoisin sauce

3 tbsp rice vinegar

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1-1/2 lb pork tenderloin, sliced thin (about 2″ long pieces)

3 tbsp vegetable oil, divided

1 egg

1-1/2 cups instant brown rice, prepared according to package directions

1 tbsp Asian Chili Sauce (I used Tabasco’s “Sweet & Spicy Pepper Sauce”)

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup frozen peas

6 oz mushrooms, chopped

8 oz coleslaw mix

1 bunch scallions, sliced thin, divided

20 lettuce leaves (Butter, Bibb, or Iceberg)

1) In 1-gallon storage bag, combine Hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sea salt, and pepper; add sliced pork and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes

2) Meanwhile, prepare fried rice: in skillet over medium heat, scramble egg in 1 tbsp oil (reserving 2 tbsp); when egg is slightly firm, break into small pieces with a spatula and add prepared rice, chili sauce, soy sauce, and peas; cook 3 minutes until warmed through; lower heat to “low” and keep warm on stovetop

3) Drain marinade from pork into a small saucepan; over high heat, stirring often, bring marinade to a rolling boil; remove from heat and set aside

4) To large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp oil (reserving 1 tbsp) and stir fry pork until browned (about 5 minutes); transfer pork to a plate and set aside

5) To same large skillet over medium-high heat, add remaining 1 tbsp oil and mushrooms; stir fry 3 minutes; add coleslaw mix and stir fry 3-4 minutes until coleslaw starts to wilt; add pork, marinade, and half the scallions; stir fry 2 minutes; add remaining scallions; remove from heat

6) Plate lettuce leaves, fried rice, and stir-fried pork mix; let everyone assemble as they like; my method: lettuce leaf, fried rice, stir-fried pork mix, and a drizzle of chili sauce (Hoisin and soy sauces are also nice for drizzling)

7) Eat, eat, eat!

Servings: 4
