wraps with carrots and shiitakes

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
We featured this Chinese restaurant classic in June of 2014. In its reviews, you'll definitely see that this classic Chinese restaurant dish isn't really hard to make at home. While this is typically served with a hoisin sauce (a sweet Asian condiment), you can easily skip it (also it's not vegetarian) for something I enjoy more - Sriracha.
Smarts: No need to find authentic 'mushu' wrappers. Flour tortillas work just fine!


Mushu Egg:
  • Garlic - 3 cloves , minced
  • Green onions - 3 stalks , chopped, white and green parts separated
  • Shiitake mushrooms - 1/2 lb , sliced
  • Soy sauce, low-sodium - 2 Tbsp
  • Mirin (opt) - 1 Tbsp ((This is a Japanese rice wine. If you can't find it, try a splash of white wine))
  • Brown sugar - 2 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Cornstarch - 1 Tbsp
  • Eggs - 4
  • Cooking oil - 1 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp
  • Coleslaw mix (or sub with shredded cabbage and carrots) - 12 oz
  • Tortillas, flour (taco-sized) - 8
  • Sriracha sauce (opt) - for serving


  1. Garlic / Green onions / Mushrooms - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add in first part of cooking oil and eggs to heated oil. Lightly scramble and then remove from wok when done.
  2. Return wok to medium-high heat and add second part of cooking oil. Once oil is heated, add coleslaw mix. Saute for ~5 minutes and then add in white parts of green onions, garlic, and mushrooms.
  3. Push all the vegetables to the side, forming a hole in the middle (like a donut). Give your sauce a stir, and then pour it in the hole.
  4. Once sauce starts to bubble and darken, toss to mix. Remove from heat and then fold in eggs.
  5. Warm tortillas. Let everyone assemble their own mushu wraps using Sriracha sauce, filling, and green parts of green onion.
