Moo Shu Stoup With Potstickers. New Music From Emerald Suspension.


Definition of Stoup from the Urban Dictionary: Thicker than a soup, thinner than a stew. A Rachael Ray portmanteau.

Definitely not to be confused with this stoup. A lifelong Catholic and I never knew that is what it’s called.

This Moo Shu Stoup With Potstickers, whatever you call it, is like a comforting bowl of moo shu pork. All the flavors of the much loved Chinese dish get souped up. The potstickers, a nod to the pancakes served with moo shu, are such a fun touch.

Moo Shu Stoup With Potstickers

Ingredients:

1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
1 pound thin-cut pork loin chops, thinly sliced
1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
1 cup shredded carrots
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small head Savoy cabbage, cored and shredded
1 (13 ounce) package pot stickers, from frozen food aisle
2/3 cup water
6 green onions, whites and greens, cut into 1-inch pieces on an angle
1/3 cup Tamari dark soy sauce (eyeball it)
2 quarts chicken stock
2 eggs, beaten

Directions:

1. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until lightly browned. Add the mushrooms, carrots and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes then add cabbage and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes.

2. While cabbage cooks, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to a skillet and arrange the pot stickers in it. Add 2/3 cup water and turn on to medium-high heat. Cook for 8 minutes to evaporate the water, then let the pot stickers brown for 1 minute more.

3. Add the green onions, soy sauce and black pepper to the soup pot. Stir to combine, then add the stock and bring to a boil. Stir in the beaten eggs and stir until they are cooked and mixed throughout.

4. Place a few pot stickers in the bottom of a soup bowl and top with Moo Shu Stoup.

Here’s another odd tune. We are on a roll this week.

‘Not Available’ is new from the Minneapolis-based band Emerald Suspension. (NOT to be confused with a Facebook group of the same name. I clicked to check it out and was rewarded with people dangling from trees by meat hooks. They all looked happy enough, but I cannot unsee those photos!!) This is the band’s Facebook link.

Check out Emerald Suspension on the band’s Website where you can keep tuned for where to buy their music.

Cheers!
