Low Carb Moo Shu Pork
Low Carb Moo Shu Pork is an easy low carb recipe that is a great addition to your weekly meal plan. With my New Year’s resolution to get in shape (and stay that way!) I’m back on the low carb wagon. I find that I’m most likely to stick with a big change, like eating low carb, if I can adjust the recipes I love to fit my new lifestyle. My Low Carb Moo Shu Pork substitutes Mission® Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas for the Mandarin pancake it usually comes with. All of the flavors of my favorite Chinese take-out food without the guilt!
What You Need to Make Low Carb Moo Shu Pork
Mission Carb Balance Tortillas – Mission Carb Balance Tortillas make the perfect low carb substitute for the traditional Mandarin pancakes served with moo shu pork. They contain zero sugar, they are a great source of fiber, and the flour tortillas are only 6 grams of net carbs per serving (5 grams of net carbs for the whole wheat tortillas).
Pork Chops – Boneless pork chops are perfect for moo shu pork because they’re easy to cut it into thin strips.
Eggs – You’ll whisk the eggs before pouring them into the hot pan with your pork chops. Then they are lightly scrambled as your continue to stir fry your vegetables.
Slaw Mix – You can thinly slice your own cabbage and carrots but I save time by purchasing a bag of cole slaw mix.
Vegetables – Shiitake mushrooms and bean sprouts (usually mung bean sprouts) are a must but you can also add bok choy, snow peas, and/or bell peppers if you like. I like to add a garnish of scallions on top of mine at the end too!
Asian sauces and spices – The flavor in this dish comes for a delicious marinade made of fresh ginger, fresh garlic, five spice powder, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame seed oil. I make extra to pour over the vegetables as everything is cooked together to give it just a little more flavor.

Once you’ve cooked your Low Carb Moo Shu Pork, add a few sliced scallions and some fresh bean sprouts to your moo shu pork and wrap it all up in a warm Mission Carb Balance Tortilla. If you ordered moo shu pork at a Chinese restaurant, it would typically be served with hoisin sauce to drizzle over the pork, so I’ve also included a low carb version in the recipe below. It definitely packs an extra punch of flavor!
Mission Carb Balance Tortillas are such an easy way to make better eating choices in the New Year. They are soft, delicious, and great for all types of meals. Make a low carb breakfast burrito, simple wraps for lunch, and delicious dinners like my Low Carb Moo Shu Pork, chicken fajitas, or soft tacos. The best part is they are so good that everyone in the family can enjoy them so you don’t have to worry about making two meals to accommodate your new eating habits.

I don’t have five spice powder, will that negatively effect the outcome?
A common mix for ground five-spice powder is cinnamon, fennel seeds, star anise, Sichuan peppercorn and cloves. I think it will be fine without as well.
