Tonight on the freezer meal plan is Hearth and Holm’s Mu Shu Pork. In her post about advance meal prep, there is a link detailing all of the recipes she used.
This recipe works out to two meals of 4 servings each.
The approximate cost of each meal broke down as follows:
pork – $10.35
carrot – $0.40
napa cabbage – $1.50
baby corn – $1.10
hoisin sauce – $0.75
ginger, garlic, green onions – $0.25-ish (I’m guessing)
That’s a total of $14.35 for 4 servings, working out to $3.55 a serving. A little higher than the previous meals I’ve reviewed this week. Next time I’ll wait until there’s a better sale on pork to get the price down just a bit. This took about 20 minutes to put both of these meals together.
We served this with tortillas (not included in the cost breakdown). We also added a bit of extra hoisin and some sriracha for serving. So good. The next time I’ll probably go as far as to make some green onion pancakes to take the place of our tortillas.
This mu shu pork recipe was a real favourite for my husband. One bite down and he declared, “I’d eat this again!”. Good sign. Definitely a good sign.
Thank you Hearth and Holm for this recipe.
