Moo Shu is a Chinese dish, it can be pork, chicken, vegetables, shrimp or tofu. Other ingredient are often cabbage, mushrooms, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, snow peas and bell peppers, also scrambled eggs. The name of the dish comes from the fact that the thin vegetable strips resemble wood shavings. Such shavings (which resembled shredded wheat) were used as a packing material for shipping fragile objects until approximately the middle of the 20th century.
