Mushu Pork in Romaine Cups
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Inspired by the mushu pork at Holee Chow a couple weeks back (see 11.329 Mushu Pork), I tried making it myself.
It turned out okay. Whereas American-style mushu wrapped in pancakes tends to be warm and soothing, the lettuce cups made this more along the lines of crisp and refreshing. Also way easier to make, and much healthier. The filling was fine, though it would’ve been better with the slight crunch and earthiness of woodear mushrooms.
