Mu Shu Chicken (Or Pork)

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by noway

One of our favorite Asian dishes, especially when served with homemade Chinese pancakes! The meat needs to marinate anywhere from 15 minutes to 8 hours ahead of time. I like to use my recipe for Five-Spice Chinese Pancakes along with this.

This was delicious! I cut back a little on the oil just to make it a little more figure friendly and it worked just fine. This didn't taste exactly like the Mu Shu I've had at restaurants, but was just as delicious. I think the difference may be in the mushrooms--next time I will try using shiitake and/or straw mushrooms. I made the five spice pancakes to serve with the Mu Shu and would highly recommend them. Thanks for posting Wallaces!
