If you are tired of buying egg rolls in the store or the deli then give this Simple Egg Roll Recipe a try. I have to admit I didn’t do the roll ups myself, I had some help; when I prepared these, and She did a very good job. The last time I attempted these they came out looking kind of ouccourd. I am getting old and I guess my fingers don’t work so well anymore. Anyway enough crying, they are just delicious and the whole family loved them. I served them with chicken flavored rice. Enjoy
|Simple Egg Roll Recipe|
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 quart peanut oil for frying
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 cups shredded cabbage
- 2 ounces shredded carrots
- 8 (7 inch square) egg roll wrappers
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
- Season pork with ginger and garlic powder and combine thoroughly. Heat mixture in a medium skillet, stirring, until pork is cooked through and no longer pink. Set aside.
- In another large skillet or deep fryer heat oil to about 375 degrees F or medium high heat. While oil is heating, combine flour and water in a bowl until they form a paste. In a separate bowl combine the cabbage, carrots and reserved pork mixture. Mix all together.
- Lay out one egg roll skin with a corner pointed toward you. Place about a 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the cabbage, carrot and pork mixture on egg roll paper and fold corner up over the mixture. Fold left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll. Brush a bit of the flour paste on the final corner to help seal the egg roll.
- Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or rack. Put on serving plate and top with sesame seeds if desired.
