Dinner in Minutes: Mu Shu Pork Wrap with Stir-Fried Bok Choy

This is a quick take on a popular Chinese classic. It’s made with sautéed pork tenderloin and shredded cabbage, which cook in just a few minutes in a hot wok. I have used whole wheat tortillas as the wrap.

Fresh bok choy is stir-fried for a few minutes as a side dish to complete the meal. I used the same wok to prepare both dishes.

This meal contains 555 calories per serving with 36 percent of calories from fat.

Fred Tasker's wine suggestion: Asian pork dishes like this go well with white wines with a little hint of sweetness. I’d try an off-dry riesling.
