Moo Shu Pork Rolls

I made this on my birthday this year.  I love this recipe.  First start with the Mandarin pancakes.


Mandarin Pancakes (for 10 pancakes)
• 1 cup all-purpose flour (unbleached)
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 1 tablespoons sesame oil

In a mixing bowl put the flour, and gradually stir in the water, mixing to make a thin batter.  Work the dough until smooth.  Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a dish towel and let rest for 45 minutes.  Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness.  Cut into rounds with a 3-inch cutter.  Brush a small amount of sesame oil on top of 1 round.  Place another round on top and press together.  Roll the 2 rounds together to form a circle about 6 or 7-inches in diameter. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Cook 1 pancake at a time until barely golden and dry on both sides, turning once, about 1 minute.
