Onions, fresh ginger, and garlic are stir-fried with strips of lean pork loin, bok choy, and mushrooms to produce a flavorful filling for tortilla wraps.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 12 ounces lean boneless pork loin, sliced into 1/4 inch thick strips
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup minced fresh ginger root
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups thinly sliced bok choy
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 10 large white mushrooms, julienned
- 4 cups bean sprouts
- 1/4 cup sake
- 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Wrap tortillas in foil.
Heat a large skillet over high heat until very hot. Add pork, onion, ginger, and garlic; cook and stir until pork is brown and onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in bok choy, red bell pepper, and mushrooms; cook and stir until bell pepper is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
Place tortillas in oven for 8 minutes, or until warm.
Meanwhile, return pan to high heat source, and mix in bean sprouts, sake, and hoisin and soy sauces; cook and stir until bean sprouts are tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.
Remove tortillas from oven. Divide pork mixture among tortillas, and roll up. Serve immediately.
Hoisin sauce, also called Peking sauce, is a thick, reddish-brown sauce that is sweet and spicy, and widely used in Chinese cooking. It's a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers and various spices. It can be found in Asian markets and many large supermarkets. Look in the Asian or ethnic section.
