Turkey Moo Shu Wraps (M, TNT)
Source: "The Totally Unbelievable Collection of Delicious American Classics Cookbook," from The Turkey Store
Serves: 6

2 tbsp. vegetable oil
8 oz. shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps sliced
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. minced ginger
1 package lean ground turkey (approximately 1-1/3 lb.)
1 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips
2 cups cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots) or sliced Napa cabbage
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup plum sauce or sweet-and-sour sauce
12 7" flour tortillas, warmed
Onion, sliced (optional)
Bean sprouts (optional)
Snow peas (optional)
Mushrooms (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, garlic, and ginger; stir fry 2 minutes.

Crumble turkey into skillet; add bell pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add cole slaw mix and hoisin sauce; stir-fry 3 minutes.

Spread a thin layer of plum sauce evenly over each warm tortilla; top with turkey mixture. Fold bottom of tortilla up over filling, fold sides in, and roll up.

Poster's Notes:
We usually add onion, bean sprouts, and snow peas to this dish and use any mushrooms we have on hand. I also like to add something that has a little hot pepper too, just enough to know that it is there.
