Oh yum! I love moo shu pork and was a little concerned about making it with the thicker tortillas. They weren't quite the same as the familiar thin pancakes - but worked really well. I cooked the cabbage mixture on high for 4 hours. I probably needed to add a little more sauce part-way during the cooking time, but it turned out great. I loved the hoisin sauce - it was truly great!!! Made an awesome dipping sauce! Really enjoyed this shortcut recipe to make moo shu at home. Thanks Ck2plz for a nice keeper. Made for Went To The Market Tag game.

I altered this recipe in two ways: first I used Worcestershire Sauce instead of sesame oil (allergies) and second I fried the pork up on the stove top before adding it just before serving.

I think the recipe - and more importantly for me - the technique of cooking the veg in the slow cooker is sound. Flavor-wise, it was a bit bland. If you can use sesame oil, that may take care of it. However, when I make it again, I'll tweak the seasonings by adding some gingered sherry to the sauce and another clove of garlic.

I think this is a great way to make use of left over meats - just cut it into match sticks and add to the veg just before serving. A real meat stretcher which also uses lots of cheap vegetables.
