Classic Egg Rolls
Egg Rolls are the classic Chinese food appetizer. They can complement any entree or be eaten alone as a main dish. Freshly made, these crunchy delights are not greasy--like many egg rolls you get in restaurants--and once you make your own, you will be spoiled. We think we may have perfected this recipe, but we always welcome suggestions.
Serves 4-6 people.
To prepare Egg Rolls, you will need:
To impart even more flavor to the meat, try combining the pork, soy sauce, hoison sauce, brown sugar, black pepper, garlic and ginger together and marinating them for 20 minutes, or overnight, before cooking.
You can also cook up all the filling and refrigerate in a covered dish for up to 3 days. Since egg rolls always taste best when freshly made, you can just fry up a few at a time when you have a craving for these amazing treats.
Make your own dipping sauce, or try some of the ready-made ones we have found quite tasty.
