Moo Shu Pork

Found this in the Food Network Magazine July/August 2010 issue. A great healthy version of moo shu pork and nice light meal for a hot summer day. This is has a very strong hoisin flavor, so if you do not like hoisin sauce, then you probably will not like this recipe. I like this recipe because it allowed me to add some heat to it throwing in some chopped jalapenos and some sriracha! It is also easy to add some more veggies too!

Moo Shu Pork

3 tablespoons hoisin sauce, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 3/4-pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
1 14-ounce bag coleslaw mix
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
12 Bibb lettuce leaves (any lettuce leave will work)

Whisk the hoisin sauce, vinegar, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the pork and marinate 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade using tongs (reserve the marinade) and stir-fry until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer the pork to a plate. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons water to the skillet, then pour the pan juices over the pork on the plate.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the skillet; when hot, add the mushrooms and stir-fry until slightly golden, about 2 minutes. Add the coleslaw mix and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the pork, the reserved marinade and half of the scallions; stir-fry 2 more minutes. Season with salt and sprinkle with the remaining scallions. Serve the stir-fry in the lettuce leaves with more hoisin sauce.
