    FLKeysJen's Note:

    I love Mu Shu Pork, one of my favorites, and this is different than others here and my cooking teacher's recipe because it does not include cabbage. The bean sprouts add a nice crunch! With fresh sprouts in lieu of canned, it's recommended to snap off the root part, for a prettier effect and it can contain bacteria. Dried mushrooms and dried wood ears (also called auricularia)are incredibly good, and available in cellophane packages in Asian markets. You can find recipes for the mandarin pancakes on Zaar, buy them frozen in Asian markets, or substitute thin flour tortillas.

    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

      Combine marinade ingredients in large bowl; add pork and stir to coat; let stand 30 minutes.

      Good, but difficult to rate this recipe. Flour tortillas were not a good sub for Mandarin pancakes (and I've never seen the later in local stores) Bamboo shoots added a bitter note that I didn't like. Subbed cabbage for sprouts, because we like it - but it didn't quite blend with the seasonings - added hoisin to compensate. (not the recipe's fault, and did not detract from the rating) All that being said, the sauces were well balanced and tasty, the ratio of meat to veges was good. I'll wait until I find/make the Mandarin pancakes to make this again, and then I'll omit the bamboo (personal preference)

      Made for Zingo ZWT4 – Marvelous is absolutely right. Great Mu Shu. Made both with and without Cabbage, both got all thumbs up. DBF wants me to make it again tomorrow. Thanks Jen.
