  • 1 pound pork tenderloin cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil divided use
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage can be green, purple or both
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup green onions cut into 1 inch pieces
  • For serving: flour tortillas or mandarin pancakes, sliced green onions, hoisin sauce


  • Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook, undisturbed, until a flat omelet forms, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully flip the eggs and cook on the other side until done, 1-2 minutes more.
  • Remove the eggs from the pan and cut into strips. Cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe out the pan with a paper towel.
  • Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan.
  • Add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Remove the pork from the pan and place on a plate; cover to keep warm.
  • Add the cabbage, ginger, garlic and mushrooms to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cabbage is wilted.
  • Return the pork and eggs to the pan. Stir in the green onions.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, honey and 1 tablespoon of water. Whisk in the cornstarch until smooth.
  • Add the sauce to the pan and turn the heat to high; bring to a boil. Boil for 30 seconds or just until sauce starts to thicken.
  • Serve immediately with tortillas or pancakes, extra hoisin sauce and sliced green onions.
