Mushu Egg | from 6/16/14
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!

Make

  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.

Overall we liked this dish. Next time, I'd spice up the sauce a little more and take more care not to cook the cole slaw mix to mush. But still tasty and worth making again.

Yum! Used a broccoli slaw and just regular mushrooms. We had sriracha sauce which was good, hoisin as well would have added more flavor. Just used flour tortillas that were on hand. Doubled the sauce because we wanted it to be extra saucy, that made more than enough.
