This recipe was taken from a Williams-sonoma catalog. Stuffed with shrimp and pork, they are basically the only egg rolls I will eat. They are great dipped in plum sauce, or with just plain soy sauce
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1⁄2 lb shrimp, cleaned, deveined and minced
- 1⁄4 cup green onion, finely chopped into rings
- 2 ounces cellophane noodles (aka Glass noodles)
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 1 (6 ounce) can water chestnuts, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 20 -25 egg roll wraps
- Break up cellophane noodles in to approximately 1-2 inch lengths, and prepare according to package instructions.
- Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
- Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into each egg roll wrapper and roll and seal according to package instructions.
- Deep-Fry in small batches of 3-4 eggrolls at 350 degrees until golden brown and delicious, about 4 minutes.
- Drain on paper towels & serve.
- (if you need to reheat them, be sure to do it in the oven or toaster oven because they get rubbery in the microwave.).
There will be no more take-out egg rolls at my dinner table; these were easy to make & oh so good! I followed the recipe with a couple of minor modifications - I used bean sprouts as I couldn't find the noodles in my local market and I added some button mushrooms (finely chopped) that were left from another dish.
