  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x




1/2 cup hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

1/4 cup rice vinegar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 inch ginger root, grated

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Stir Fry

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut very thin (or pork)

2 tablespoons canola oil

2 large eggs, beaten

8 ounces portobello or shiitake mushrooms, sliced

1 pound coleslaw mix or sliced cabbage

6 green onions, sliced

Serve with: Mandarin pancakes or flour tortillas, lettuce cups, or steamed rice


  1. Mix together all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Pour half the sauce over the sliced chicken and mix together. Allow the chicken to marinade while chopping the vegetables. Save the remaining sauce for the end of the recipe.
  3. Scramble the two eggs in a small nonstick skillet until cook. Set aside.
  4. Heat a large skillet or a large wok over high heat. Once hot, add 1 tablespoon oil then the chicken. Stir fry the chicken just until cooked through. Remove the cooked from the pan and set aside.
  5. Return pan to the high heat and add another tablespoon of oil. Add the mushrooms, onions, and cole slaw mix. Stir and cook just until the cabbage begins to wilt. Add the chicken, egg, and the reserved sauce not used in the marinade.
  6. Toss all the ingredients together until everything is coated in the sauce and serve immediately over steamed rice, or inside Mandarin pancakes or flour tortillas.


To make moo shu pork, simply use pork loin in place of the chicken, cutting it into thin slices as well.
