- 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 Tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp ginger, finely chopped
- black pepper to taste
- 1 lb boneless pork loin or tenderloin, cut into thin strips
- 14oz cabbage (we used half of green and red ), cut into thin strips
- 1 small carrot, cut into julienne
- 8oz shiitake mushrooms, thinly-sliced
- 4 scallions, green part only, cut into strips
- 2 large eggs
- 3-4 Tbsp oil
- Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Use half of the marinade to marinate the pork (the rest will be used as a cooking sauce). Marinate the pork for a few hours in the refrigerator if time allows, or while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
- Whisk the eggs in a bowl with a little salt. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, and make a large thin omelette. When it’s ready, plate it out and cut it into thin strips.
- In the same pan, heat 2 Tbsp oil and sauté the pork strips over high heat. Spread them so they don’t overcrowd the pan, and cook for 8-10 minutes until cooked through. Remove to a plate.
- In the same pan, use a little more oil if necessary and sauté cabbage, carrots, and shiitake mushrooms for 2-3 minutes. Add the rest of the reserved marinade to the mix and combine well. Cook for another minute or two, until the veggies get a little softer.
- Stir in the cooked pork and omelette strips, and toss until combined. Taste, and season with extra salt and pepper (and/or hoisin or soy sauce), as needed. Sprinkle the green parts of the scallions and serve immediately with flour tortillas or rice. You can garnish it with an extra drizzling of warm hoisin sauce, along with sesame seeds.
