Transcript:Moo Shu PorkHi, I'm Gretchen Siegchrist for About.com Food, and I am going to show you how to make moo shu pork. This is a delicious dish that is easy to make at home.
Moo Shu Pork MarinadeFor this recipe, you will need:
- 8 ounces of pork loin
- 2 tablespoons rice wine
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
Marinate the Moo Shu PorkCut the meat into small slivers. Chop the garlic and the ginger into fine pieces. Place these in a medium bowl and then add the rest of the marinade ingredients. Whisk everything together and add the pork. Stir this up so that the pork is well coated. Then cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for four hours or so.
Moo Shu Pork IngredientsWhile the pork is marinating, we will prepare the other ingredients. You will need:
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 large eggs
- 2 cups bok choy
- 1/2 cup green onions
- 1 cup fresh bean sprouts
- 1/2 cup bamboo shoots
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1teaspoon sugar
Chop the Moo Shu VegetablesBegin by chopping the green onions and the bok choy into small pieces. Add the eggs to a small bowl and beat them together.
Scramble the EggsWhen you are ready to cook the moo shu, add two tablespoons of vegetable oil to a wok, and let it heat up over medium high heat. Add the eggs and scramble them until they are firm. When the eggs are done, remove them from the wok and place them in a bowl.
Stir Fry the Moo Shu PorkAdd another tablespoon of oil to the wok, and then add the pork strips. Stir fry the pork over high heat for four to five minutes until it is brown and cooked through. Remove it from the wok and set it aside for now.
Stir Fry the Moo Shu VegetablesAdd another tablespoon of oil to the wok and then add the boy choy, green onions, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, sugar and garlic and stir fry them together for about three minutes or so until the bok choy is wilted.
Mix and Serve the Moo Shu PorkNow add the bean sprouts and return the pork and the eggs to the wok. Mix everything together and let it cook until all the ingredients are heated through. When the moo shu is done cooking, transfer it to a large bowl. You can serve it as is, or roll it up in a pancake with Hoisin sauce. Enjoy!
