So good. We've been trying lots of Asian recipes lately and my boyfriend said this is his favorite. We decided to substitute lettuce for the cabbage wrap, but it fell apart. We ended up using tortillas. Next time I might be prepared cole slaw mix instead of messing with a whole head of cabbage. Definitely excited to try again.
Mu Shu Pork Wraps
If your butcher is unable to cut an 8-ounce piece of pork loin, buy 1 pound and freeze the remainder for another use. Save your mushroom stems for stocks or broths.
