Make Chinese food at home tonight

This recipe for boneless pork loin and flour tortillas is a great way to bring Chinese food into your own home.

Chinese food is a standard when it comes to quick and easy take out. Whenever I'm not in the mood to cook, I grab the take-out menu, pick out a few items, and have dinner in 30 minutes. It's always delicious, but it's also a nice chunk of change. Well, what if I could make some of my favorite choices at home? It would be healthier, that's for sure, but it would also be a lot cheaper.

One of my favorite items on the take-out menu is mu shu pork. Adding packaged cole slaw mix, flour tortillas, and frozen eggrolls makes this entrée an easy do it yourself choice when you're starving and short on time.
