Active: 30 minTotal: 30 min

We've been excited to update and refresh this 'take-out fake-out' since it was featured in the early days of our meal planning service in 2014. Once you try it, you won't believe how easy it is to make this Chinese-inspired favorite at home.
Smarts: No need to find authentic 'mushu' wrappers. Flour tortillas work just fine!

Prep

  1. Make stir-fry sauce - Mix together soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, water, and cornstarch. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Carrots - Dice carrots. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Mushrooms / Green onions / Garlic / Cabbage - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Chicken - Slice into thin strips. Season and tenderize. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Make

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add oil and then carrots and mushrooms. Saute until tender, ~3 minutes.
  2. Add in white parts of green onions, garlic, and cabbage with a pinch of salt.
  3. Push all the vegetables to the side, forming a hole in the middle (like a donut). Place chicken in the donut hole. Give your sauce a stir, and then pour it over the chicken.
  4. Once sauce starts to bubble and darken, toss to mix. Continue to stir-fry until chicken is cooked through (since the chicken has been sliced into thin strips, this shouldn't take more than another 4 to 5 minutes).
  5. Warm tortillas according to package directions.
  6. Let everyone assemble their own mushu wraps using hoisin (or Sriracha), filling, and green parts of green onion. Enjoy!

I think this was user error on my husband’s part. I opened my dinner at work. No tortillas and no hoisin sauce. Completely disappointed in dinner. Needed salt/pepper, too.

Something was missing. Add TJ's Yuzu and ginger to taste.

Was sweet-used Hoisen on top. Used shredded carrots & bag cabbage. Won’t use shredded carrots next time, way too much carrot flavor or just used too much. 8 year old ate veggie over rice. Used tortillas, interested in finding moo shoo wraps .

Surprisingly delicious! Napa cabbage is my new favorite. Doubled all veggies. Used paleo sauce but had to add tortilla. Hit with while family.
