Soft-Fried Sherded Pork and Eggs
 
1/2 Cup dried tiger lily buds
1/4 cup dried cloud ears
1/2 pound boneless pork shoulder
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 tablespoon soysauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
4 whole scallions, shredded
1 teaspoon sesame-seed oil
Flour Tortillas
In a small bowl, cover the tiger lily buds with 1 cup of warm water and let them soak for 30 minutes. Discard the water. Snap off and discard the hard ends of the buds, wash the buds in a col­ander under cold running water, drain, and cut each bud in half.In anothers ll bowl, cover the cloud ears with 1 cup of warm water and let them soak for 30 minutes. Discard the water. Wash the ears under cold running water, then break them into small pieces.Place the pork on a chopping board and, holding the meat firmly, cut it horizontally into paper-thin slices with a cleaver or sharp knife, Then cut the slices into shreds 1 1/2 to 2 inches long and 1/8 inch wide. Combine the wine, soy sauce, cornstarch and sugar in a bowl, add the pork shreds, and mix well.Have the above ingredients, and the oil, lightly beaten eggs, salt and scallions within easy reach.Heat the TORTILLAS and keep them warm.
Heat wok on high heat for about 30 seconds. Pour in 2 tablespoons of oil, swirl it about in the pan and immediately reduce the heat to moderate. Pour in the beaten eggs. They will form a film on the bottom of the pan almost at once. Imme­diately push it to the back of the pan with a fork so that the still-liquid eggs on top can spread into the bottom of the pan to cook. As soon as the eggs are set and dry, but before they begin to brown, transfer them to a small bowl and break them up with a fork. .
Pour 2 more tablespoons of oil into the pan, swirl it about and h at it for 30 seconds. Add the shredded pork mixture and stir-fry for 5 to 6 min­utes until the meat loses its pink color. Add the tiger lily buds and cloud ears, and stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the scallions and salt, mix well, and stir in the scrambled eggs. Stir and cook for 1 minute longer, add the sesame-seed oil and serve at once in a deep platter, accompanied by the warm Tortillas.Traditionally, each guest spreads a pancake flat on his plate and places about 2 tablespoons of the pork mixture along the center of the pancake. The pancake is folded in half over the pork and tucked under it, one end of the package is then folded over about 1 inch to enclose the filling se­curely, and the whole rolled into a neat cylinder that can be picked up with the fingers and eaten.
