Moo Shu Chicken Recipe

Moo Shu Chicken (Pakistani style)

Moo Shu is an Chinese recipe normally cooked with pork but we are going to share the recipe which is Halal so we are going to use chicken instead of pork. As you can use variety of items to make this recipe,  it can be cooked with pork, chicken, vegetables, shrimp or tofu. Other ingredient are often cabbage, mushrooms, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, snow peas and bell peppers, also scrambled eggs.  The name of the dish comes from the fact that the thin vegetable strips resemble wood shavings. Such shavings (which resembled shredded wheat) were used as a packing material for shipping fragile objects until approximately the middle of the 20th century.

In its traditional Chinese version, moo shu pork consists of sliced or shredded pork chop meat and scrambled eggs, stir fried in sesame or peanut oil together with thinly sliced wood ear mushrooms (black fungus) and day lily buds.
