I’m a sucker for just about any Asian flavoured dish, but even to me, these Moo Shu Pork Tacos are something special. The thinly sliced pork is so incredibly tender, and absolutely bursting with flavour from the marinade. Quickly tossed with some fresh coleslaw and a couple of scrambled eggs, I pile it into a soft tortilla with a bit of rice, then top it with green onions, chopped cashews, a squeeze of lime juice, and a trio of sauces. I’m seriously drooling right now. DROOLING!
I know what you’re probably thinking. “I saw you mention marinade up there, and ready in 30 minutes, but that must be AFTER you prep and marinate it the day before?”. NOPE – these Moo Shu Pork Tacos are start to finish in 30 minutes. That includes all the prep and marinating time.
Moo Shu Pork Tacos – Kid Approved?!
You know what is the absolute worst? Spending a whole bunch of time in the kitchen planning and prepping dinner, then having your kids not eat it. Even more frustrating? Making an INCREDIBLE roasted cauliflower – because your daughter REQUESTED cauliflower – then watching her poke it with a fork and say she doesn’t like it without putting it in her mouth. Cough, Sophie, cough. I’m still pretty salty about last night.
That definitely wasn’t the case with these Moo Shu Pork Tacos. Anna got through two bites of her first taco, proclaimed it was the greatest thing she had ever eaten, and then proceeded to eat four tacos. Yes, FOUR tacos. Eaten by a seven year old. It was fk’ing impressive. Sophie and Oliver loved them too.
I’d say the hardest thing for Sophie was just being able to eat them without the filling falling out of the taco and onto her plate. She opted to just eat the Moo Shu Pork on top of some rice and scoop it all up with a spoon. Going forward, I picked up tortilla boats for her to use. They are my absolute favourite for the kids, and you should be able to find them wherever you grocery shop.…
