Ingredients

How to make it

  • Brown pork in small amount of oil adding garlic and green onions about halfway through cooking.
  • Once done, add cabbage mix and cook about 3-5 minutes until cabbage cooks down and is tender.
  • Add remaining ingredients(other than the wrappers and frying oil, of course ;) and continue to cook on low heat another few minutes to blend flavor.
  • Again, PLEASE taste filling mixture before proceeding...egg rolls can be sooooooo good, but if you are just a bit short on seasoning, they will be very bland. If you aren't afraid of MSG, add a dash of it, too! :)
  • Egg Rolls aren't hard to roll, but if you've never done it, it can be intimidating. I will try to give the best directions I can, and I am including photos, but if there are any questions, please ask!
  • Place one egg roll wrapper in front of you, with a corner facing you directly.
  • Put several T filling about 1 inch in front of that corner and extend toward both edges. See Photo
  • Fold close corner up and just over filling. See Photo
  • Tuck and fold one end over corner that just covered filling, then repeat with other side. See Photo
  • Then, just roll the whole thing away from you until you get to end. See Photo
  • Just at the end, before folding final corner over roll, WET edge of that corner then, fold over. See Photo
  • Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.
  • Now, you can freeze these, as is, by wrapping tightly in freezer paper or cling and placing in good freezer bag.
  • Or, heat about 3-4 inches peanut oil in dutch oven(I use my cast iron, of course ;), to about 350 degrees and fry 2-3 at a time, about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. See Photo
  • Drain on brown paper or paper towels
  • Serve with various dipping sauces, like Hot Chinese Mustard, Sweet and Hot Thai Chili Sauce, soy, sweet and sour, etc.

    Oooh, I'm totally stealing this idea. Although not sure about the peanut oil as it's very expensive here. Now you have me curious about dale's. I have a friend in mississippi, maybe she'd be able to mail me a bottle so I can try it? I also must commend you for the step-by-step photos, not many people on here go through the trouble. 5 forks for this!

    Made this again last night for a party, not one left! Everyone loved them. didn't change the recipe at all except I baked them instead of frying them. Just brushed them with peanut oil first. Thanks Keni.

    We made these again today, but used chicken instead of ground pork. We loved them with the chicken - much preferred to the pork. We froze a bunch too this time around. Served them with whodunitrdr's Chicken and Shrimp Lo Mein.

    Hey Keni - I just got a new deep fryer for my birthday and we made these at 9:00 pm last night after a long day of putting up a playset for the kids. They were great! Super easy to roll too, so thanks for the great instructions. This actually was the 1st time I've made egg rolls. Next time I'm going to freeze some so we have some when we throw together a quick Chinese meal! Just curious, have you ever made them with shrimp or chicken, because I think we are going to try a different meat next time? Thanks for the recipe!

    I have hear a couple of people mention your egg rolls so I had to come check them out. Great recipe Keni. I have never made an egg roll either and it seems you have got the ingredients down. Great instructions too. Makes me want to go get the stuff and try it tonight....

    I like the way you put your recipes together..:-)~ You have a great weekend too. Hugs back... Jim

    Hey Laurie! Usually 5spice includes: pepper, cinnamon, anise, cloves, and fennel, with or without ginger. You can use any Asian spice blend, or, just a dash of each/some of the above. :)

    Hey Keni, These look really good. I would like to try them some time as an app for company. but I was wondering what are the 5 spices in the chinese 5 spice? I haven't seen that around here.

    Delicious! Another keeper Keni. I made them to try out my new Fry Daddy and served them with Mattsbelly's beef and broccoli. I did not use the 5 spice powder as Mom can't have the anise due to medication interaction so I made my own mix of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom to use instead. The filling was very easy to make and I did let it cool a bit before filling the wrappers. The filling and the wrappers (20) came out even, too which is a first for me - I usually have some of one or the other left over - lol. Thank you for posting this one.
