someone asked yesterday for my egg roll recipe so here it is. The secret (which I still haven't masterd) is to roll them as tight as possible. You can deep fry them or just semi deep fry by using just a little oil in a pan and watching them closely so they do not burn. I do an entire package of of them about 2 or 3 times a year. They freezed beautifully and can be re-heated in the toaster oven in about 10 minutes. They are not hard to make, just a little time consuming, that is why I do so many at once.
A couple of cups of shreded cabbage
1 small onion or 3 green onions (chopped fine)
1 shredded carrot
2 tbsp shreded fresh ginger
1 cup of diced pork or shrimp
2 tbsp soy sauce

Mix all ingredients together. Take one egg roll at a time out of the package
(be careful to not let the others hit the air, they can dry out very quickly) Place a couple of spoonfuls of mixture in middle of the roll. Follow the directions on the egg roll package. Roll tightly and seal with a mixture of water and raw eggs. You can use just water if you want.
When they are all assembled fry for just a few minutes. Cool on paper towels and freeze in packages of 2 to 4.

For dipping sause I combine a little of our favorite jelly or jam, Asain hot sause (be careful it is very hot) and balsonic vinegar. That is all there is to it.

Yum, love spring rolls.

Fiddly to make aren't they? Haven't tried making them, but salad rolls many times and had the same problem, trying to master rolling them tighter.

Now I put a lettuce leaf on the bottom and all the rest of the ingredients on top and then wrap the lettuce tightly and hold in place while wrapping the rice paper wrapper around that, voila!

How about instead of shredding the cabbage, try the same thing with a leaf of cabbage or partial leaf with the hard stem part cut out?

ok, now I'm hungry.

that sounds yummy: I also love plain lettuce wraps, but again, it isn't easy to get the lettuce just right for rolling. PF Changs does a better job than I do, they also charge a lot more...
