Moo Shu Pork & Mock Mandarin Pancakes

This is a new recipe for me.  It's from one of my (many!!) Pampered Chef cookbooks.

5 green onions, 1 (8oz) can sliced water chestnuts, 1/2 cup hoisin sauce, vegetable oil, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 2 eggs, 8 (6in) flour tortillas, 2 boneless pork chops, 2 tbsp sesame seeds, 2-3 cups cole slaw mix (I made my own with cabbage & carrots)
Makes 4 servings

For some reason I never remember to put oil in my ingredient yeah, there should be some vegetable oil.

First you want to thinly slice the green onions.  Reserve a bit for garnishing if you want.

Coarsely chop the water chestnuts.  I used my food chopper again to make it easier.

Mix the hoisin sauce, 2 tsp of oil, soy sauce & sesame seeds in a bowl.

Set all of that to the side. Next you want to make the pancakes.

Heat some oil in a skillet...or just spray it with cooking spray. Just make sure it's nice and greased up.
Lightly beat the 2 eggs in a coating tray of cake pan.

Dip a tortilla in the egg (both sides)

Toss it in the pan.  Let it cook for about 15-20 seconds per side, until the egg is cooked & it's nice and brown.

Do that with the rest of your tortillas.  Keep them warm. (I just put them on a plate, covered them with a dish towel and set them in the microwave).

Cook the pork & prepare the filling.
Flatten the pork with the toothed end of a meat tenderizer.

Slice the chops into 1/4in strips.

Toss it in a skillet until no longer pink.

Add the green onions...

And the water chestnuts...

And the slaw mix...

and the sauce...

Mix it all up and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.

The rest is easy. Heat up the pancakes (about 30 sec in the microwave) and then put
some of the filling in them.

(I apologize for the lack of sharpness in the pic.  I could not, for the life of me. get a clear pic. Sorry.)

They were outstanding. You never know that you were eating tortillas....the egg coating completely changes the texture and taste.  The filling was amazing. I had to take a pic while I was eating...

2 was more than enough. I served a bunch of fresh cantaloupe as a side...complemented it perfectly.

This recipe was SO easy and dang was it good. The kids loved it as well.

MAKE THIS. You won't regret it, I promise.


  1. I am definitely doing this for myself one night when I get back from my trip. this looks AMAZING!

  2. Interesting...I wonder if my kid will eat this?

    Did you know if you take a little clip (like a chip clip) and clip the end of the kid's tortilla it keeps all the contents inside...

  3. Try it, Kel! It was a hit with Austin. And I am SO going to try the chip clip trick!

  4. Is hoisin sauce gluten free, do you know?

  5. Mine wasn't....but I found this:

    The site says this: We found this product at City Market (King Soopers/Krogers) in the sauce section (next to barbecue sauces). This product should also be available in other main stream grocery chains and natural food stores.

    Hope that helps!!

  6. Thanks! I have safe soy and teriyaki, but I never used hoisin before. :)
