Stir Fry Chinese recipes are at the core of our weekly meal rotations. We are such creatures of habit that finding takeout copycats we can keep enjoying as often as we’d like (and in BIG portions) keep us satisfied and on track.

This Moo Shu Pork (sometimes called Mu Shu Pork) is the PERFECT Chinese meal made at home. You get a really large serving for a small amount of points. My happy place is eating large servings of delicious food.

What is Moo Shu made of? Moo Shu Pork is similar to a grown up version of the inside of an egg roll. Made with cabbage, carrots, pork, garlic and ginger in a hoisin-sherry sauce, this easy pork stir fry dish is going to be a family favorite you go back to over and over again.


What to serve with Moo Shu Pork? We love to serve this over cauliflower rice (my favorite is cauliflower fried rice which is coming soon), brown rice or steamed vegetables.

What sauce is served with Moo Shu Pork?

The sauce you commonly see served along side moo shu pork is hoisin sauce. Hoisin sauce is similar to a bbq sauce, with a sweet flavor. It is not low in smart points, clocking in around 2 points per tablespoon.

The most authentic way to serve moo shu pork was to serve it in Asian pancakes. I usually eat them with low point flour tortillas but we have gone all out a couple of times and made these pancakes for 2 smart points per pancake.

Moo Shu Pancake Recipe:

2 cups flour
3/4 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon sesame oil.

Add the flour to a stand mixer bowl with a dough hook then mix in the boiling water.
Let the mixer go on medium speed until the flour and water together until it comes together into a ball.
Knead for an additional five minutes.
Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
Knead for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Cut dough into 16 pieces, then roll into tortilla shapes.
Brush with sesame oil and cook in a dry pan on medium heat for 15-20 seconds on each side.

  1. This was fantastic! My local Chinese place sets a pretty high bar for Moo Shu Pork, and this recipe did not disappoint. I subbed sliced white onion for the bamboo shoots – per my taste. So happy I found your site via your guest post on Skinnytaste. Thanks for another winner!
