Easy Shrimp (or any meat) Mu Shu
I literally pulled this dish together in 10 minutes!
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 16 ounce bag Asian stir-fry veggies (available at health stores)
- 2 teaspoons minced bottled garlic
- 2 cups frozen, cooked, tail-off shrimp that's been thawed, or a substitute of your choice (try shredded roasted chicken, pork, meat, or diced tofu)
- 3 cups shredded Chinese or Napa cabbage (or substitute regular cabbage)
- 2 large eggs, beaten with 2 teaspoons water (you may use 1/4 cup egg substitute in place of one of the eggs)
- 3 tablespoons bottled hoisin sauce (available in most supermarkets)
- 6 flour tortillas
- Start heating the canola oil in the middle of a nonstick wok or large nonstick frying pan or skillet. Add the bag of vegetables and the garlic; stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
- Add the shrimp, meat, or tofu and the cabbage; stir-fry for about 2 more minutes. Push the vegetable mixture around the sides of the wok or pan to make a 4-inch wide opening in the center.
- Pour the beaten eggs into the opening and let cook there for a minute. While you're waiting, grind some black pepper lightly over the top. Start tossing the mixture together to finish cooking the eggs (about 1 minute more). Drizzle the hoisin sauce over the top of the mixture and toss to blend well.
- Soften tortillas by heating briefly in the microwave. Place some of the vegetable mixture into center of each tortilla and roll up like a burrito. Repeat with remaining tortillas and vegetable mixture.
