Making Egg Rolls

Egg rolls are a favorite of ours that we only get as a treat when we order the combo for four from the Rice Bowl. So you can image how excited I was to try out this recipe when I found it one day while reading some ones meal plan. They were very easy to make and actually didn't cost a lot money. It was cheaper to make 18 egg rolls then it was to buy 6 in a package.

So here is my step by step on how to make you own egg rolls.

1 lb ground pork
1 tsp minced ginger
2 c finely shredded cabbage
1c grated carrot
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 Tbsp soy sauce or oyster sauce
1 pkg egg roll wrappers

1. Stir fry meat and ginger until meat is lightly browned. Add shredded cabbage, carrot and green onion. Cook until veggies are wilted. Stir in soy sauce or oyster sauce. Allow to cool.

Once the mixture is cooled you can begin to wrap the egg rolls. First start off by placing the wrapper on a working surface. They place the wrapper in a diamond shape. Place your filling in the center or the wrapper.

Fold up the bottom edge and roll under once. They bring in the two sides.

Next I wet my finger in a little bowl of water and wet the edge of the wrapper. Continue wrapping up the egg roll.

Then place the wrapped egg rolls on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. When ready to cook add two or three to a deep fryer that is set on 375. Let them cook about 3-4 minutes. When done drain on a paper towel.

Serve them warm with your favorite dipping sauce.

They also freeze very well. Although the once that I did freeze are gone already as hubby just LOVED these things. Now I know why I should have doubled the recipe. Maybe I will have to make a batch (secretly) and freeze them before I give my friends back their deep fryer.

We make ours with chicken rather than pork and fry them on the stove top ... just put about 1/4 inch canola oil in the bottom of a large fry pan, heat, and put the egg rolls in. I have found the wrappers and filling freeze well individually, but not too well once put together.
