Easy Chinese Egg Rolls Recipe @pinch

If you are not near a Chinese restaurant or don't feel like grabbing take haveout, make these homemade egg rolls. They are full of meat and veggies. Once fried, the outside is very crisp. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce for the ultimate snack or appetizer. I don't know what's happening to all the Chinese restaurants in my town, but they are all closing up! I'm originally from D.C. and LOVE good Chinese food. I was jonesing for egg rolls and decided to try making my own. And they were YUMMY! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Recipe Cuisine: Chinese Recipe Category: Other Side Dishes Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 pound(s) ground pork
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 5 cup(s) packaged cabbage/coleslaw mix
  • 1 tablespoon(s) oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ginger in a tube (found in produce dept. of grocery)
  • - salt & pepper, to taste
  • 15 - egg roll wraps
  • 1 quart(s) oil, for frying
  • 3 clove(s) garlic finely minced, or 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 - eggs, scrambled and mashed up, optoinal
Intructions :
  • In a little bit of oil, saute onions until tender
  • Then add pork and saute until browned or done
  • Add garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper and mix well letting the flavors settle. Add oyster sauce and mix again
  • Then add cabbage
  • Cook for about 3-5 minutes according to your desired crunch factor.
  • Fill egg roll wraps by starting with the corner closest to you and adding about 2 Tbsp of filling
  • Wet each end, roll the mixture in the wrap once, fold in the sides, and continue to the end of the furthest corner
  • Make sure the wet ends stick to each other. You can watch how to do it on this YouTube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJTdKyDg_2Y
  • Heat oil to 350-360 degrees. NOTE: Make sure oil is hot enough or egg rolls will be greasy. Deep fry 1-3 egg rolls at a time until they are light brown. They will look darker after you take them out of the oil. Drain on paper towels. AGAIN, make sure that all openings in the egg roll are sealed with water and stay closed or the egg rolls will be greasy
  • You can buy duck sauce already made or make your own with apricot jam, a little light corn syrup, and some water to make it your desired consistency. If you make your own, I recommend putting a tad of ginger in it for some extra flavor.
