I got this recipe from an old Chinese cookbook. You can find the Tiger Lily Buds and dried 'tree ears' in most Asian markets. We love this recipe! You can add chopped cabbage, but the original recipe doesn't call for it. I add it if I need to make a larger portion. I buy the Mandarin Pancakes at my local chinese take out place. You can make your own. See below. I serve with fried rice on the side. You can also use this filling for lettuce wraps...yum!
