My husband and I love this recipe! It's a must-have at our house! We put chicken in ours (my husband's a big carnivore!), use broccoli slaw, and serve it with warm tortillas. The first time I made it, we didn't have any hoisin sauce in the house, and I think I may have liked it a little better without the hoisin. My husband likes to add teriyaki sauce to it, too, just to kick up the flavor some more. I love the amount of veggies in this, and that it fills you up without making you feel weighed down!

Made this recipe today and was disappointed after reading all the positive reviews. I followed some reviewers suggestions and added mushrooms, fish sauce, etc. but it still lacked flavor. My local Chinese restaurant makes a fabulous moo shu and I'll stick with them unless I can find a better recipe.
I followed the recipe exactly and served w/ warm tortillas. My husband and I enjoyed it, but next time will add more fresh veggies (red pepper, mushrooms) and add some chili garlic sauce or sriracha for some kick.
I made this last night for dinner and my husband loved it. I made a couple of alterations...I used rainbow slaw instead of broccoli slaw, egg beaters instead of eggs, and Bragg's Amino Acids instead of Soy (much less sodium). We used a bit of Bragg's to spray on and then wrapped in some high fiber tortillas and it was awesome. I also served with a little bit of brown rice. My husband said it tasted lik something he'd get from our local Mongolian BBQ. It was really yummy...can't wait to make again.
I enjoyed the flavor of this dish. It is delicious, but still healthier than takeout from a Chinese food restaurant. It is a bit high in sodium, but most American Chinese food is. I had to make a few adjustments based on what I had on hand- I skipped the sprouts, used powdered ginger instead of fresh (and used several teaspoons for extra flavor), and used chives in the place of scallions. Might sound like a lot of replacements, but it worked out perfectly, and I'd make it this way again. I ate it on a whole wheat wrap instead of a tortilla, which held the ingredients well and adds a bit more fiber just due to being larger. No matter if you make it according to the instructions or you tweak it based on what you have available, you will enjoy this dish!
