mu shu pork (kansas-style)

Okay listen, people.
As much as I love (LOVE!!!) these recent snowstorms we've had here,
the cancellations of school & related activities have left me
in a tailspin.
I am a creature of habit and if you take away my hamster wheel,
well...I go completely nutty.

So, having said all that, tomorrow looks like it will be a *normal* day,
school will take place and the earth will be back on its axis.
Thank you, Jesus!

I made Mu Shu Pork last night, of which I took pictures,
so I suppose I will post about it.
Though everyone in my family thought it was quite tasty,
I was a bit critical.
But that's normal for me.
I am negative about everything I make, almost always.
Well, except when no-one else likes what I make, and I happen to LOVE it,
and I call everyone else CRAZY and run away crying.

Yes, that's how it usually happens,
one way or another.

So, back to the Mu Shu Pork.

About a pound or so of thinly sliced pork (or ground), seasoned with freshly ground ginger,
garlic, salt, pepper, soy sauce....and whatever else you want.
Stir-fry it up in a wok with sesame oil. 

Add in some shredded cabbage & carrots!

Cook it up real nice.

Then heat up some hoisin sauce, a tad bit of soy sauce, Chinese vinegar & brown sugar.
(I didn't measure...just do it up the way you like, man.)

 Then load it all up in a tortilla!
(Yes, I know.  Go with me's the Kansas version of a Chinese pancake.)

 Add some sticky white rice on the side & your Asian crowd will be pleased as punch,
I promise!!!

That's all for now.
Over and out.

May your days be filled with normalcy!!
