I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and it has converted a bunch of my friends into cabbage lovers!! They can't wait to have these when I make them! Enjoy!
- Fry the ground beef with the salt and pepper and garlic powder until the meat is completely browned.
- Make sure to add a lot of the salt and pepper and garlic powder.
- This needs to have a strong flavor because you'll be frying it with other ingredients.
- Don't put so much in that you can't eat it, but you want to really taste it.
- Once you are done getting the flavor right, get a LARGE bowl and put the shredded cabbage and carrots in it and then add the ground beef on top.
- Mix together completely and let sit for about 15 minutes.
- I do that so the mixture will soften and I can roll them more easily.
- Check the mixture after it sits to make sure the flavor is still there and really stands out.
- If not, add more of the salt and pepper and garlic powder.
- It's really up to your taste buds, but this is what I've done and I get RAVE reviews.
- Heat up your oil for frying in a deep fryer.
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions for how much oil to add, but always make sure you don't fill it to the top so you don't get hurt.
- I usually only fill about half of the fryer.
- Crack an egg into a small bowl to make a wash for sealing the egg roll wraps.
- Take a wrap and put about 1-2 teaspoons of the meat mixture onto the wrap.
- Wrap the roll as shown on the package, remembering to seal with the egg wash.
- I try to wrap my rolls tightly, but I don't always do that so well.
- Once you are done wrapping, place the egg rolls carefully into the oil about 2-3 at a time.
- Cook them until they are blond in color.
- Don't let them get too dark.
- Take them out and let drain on paper towels.
- You're done! I serve mine with Grey Poupon for dipping. yummy!
- Others might enjoy soy sauce! These also freeze very well, that is of course, if you have any left! I make a bunch for myself and have them for lunch.
- Just pop them in the microwave for about 1 minute, and you're done.
These were great, and very easy. I used shrimp and added a little onion and ginger. You were correct about the need for almost "over seasoning". I thought I had ruined the dish but cooked them anyway and they were great. Thanks!
Easy and yummy. Didn't have ground beef, so used a little cut up cooked pork, but concluded they would have been just as good without. Did end up putting some sesame oil, soy sauce and ground ginger in the mix for more flavor. Who would have thought that making your own egg rolls could be so easy.
Can I come over to your house?? Man, everything you've submitted so far is STELLAR!!! Where did you learn to cook? These egg rolls have great color, texture, taste, and they are easy (albeit a bit messy) to make! You need lots of counter space for this one, but it's worth it! Try it with teryaki wings!!!
