It's inconceivable that living in New York, I can't get good or even passable Chinese food in my Brooklyn neighborhood. And though it's not terribly expensive, after you pick off all the breading and scrape off all the gloppy sauce, there's literally two ounces of protein, so it actually winds up being quite pricey. Something as lean and clean as moo-shu arrives at my door mushy and limp. It's just as easy to stir-fry some shrimp with shredded cabbage and mushrooms and serve it with fluffy steamed flour tortillas and hoisin sauce. I like Lee Kum Kee hoisin, because it's not too sweet and has a surprisingly short ingredient list. SEE RECIPE »
