  • Combine soy sauce, sherry and hoisin sauce in a bowl.

  • Drain and thinly slice.
  • Set aside on a plate, along with the cabbage, carrot and scallions.
  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil and swirl to coat.
  • Pour in the eggs, swirling and tilting the wok to form a thin film.
  • Cook just until the eggs are set and feel dry on top, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer to a platter, let cool slightly and cut into 1 inch strips.
  • Return the wok to high heat, and swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil.

  • Add the reserved mushrooms, cabbage, carrot, bean sprouts, and scallions, along with the chicken stock, and stir-fry another 2 minutes.

  • To serve, spread a small amount of hoisin sauce on a warm Mandarin Pancake.
  • Spoon about 1/2 cup mu shu mixture in center of pancake, wrap like a burrito, folding the ends to close, and serve.
