OUTSTANDING!! These are so flavorful, you almost don't even need a dipping sauce. I followed your recipe exactly except (lol) I used fresh bean sprouts instead of clear rice noodles because I'm afraid of them, lol.. Anyhow, great recipe! Thanks! Note: 11-NOV-2007 suggestion to the reviewer who mentioned the rolls stuck together when attempting to freeze them - fear not, you just did it wrong. To freeze these, you want to put them on a cookie sheet, not touching, and place in freezer overnite; then, wake up and after you've had your coffee, go ahead and put them in ziplock bags, there you go. Better luck next time ;)
My DH has been wanting some spring rolls, so I decided to try this recipe. Made following the recipe exactly and they came out awesome! I made up some Linda's Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for Dipping (Egg Rolls, Sushi) to dip them in and it was the perfect hot/sweet sauce to accompany them. The sauce is addicting! We gobbled them up like there was no tomorrow. Another recipe for my favorites folder that I can't wait to have again. Thanks for sharing Jenny! Becky
Wow great recipe I've always loved Spring rolls and wanted to make them myself, came across your recipe and tried it last night. Boy O Boy where they HOT Spicy HOT, I omitted the pork and fried the veg's because i believe Carrots, Onion and Cabbage become sweeter when fried. I substituted the noodles for Bean Sprouts which I also added to the frying pan for the last few minutes to soften them, The rolling was very easy I did realize after the 2nd 3rd one that the less mixture the easier it was to fold and then remained nice and tight and thin. I kept enough mixture to make one with out the spices and preferred that one, so next time i won't add the cayenne pepper or garlic - chilli sauce.
Thanks for sharing so happy I found your recipe now i can make my own Thai Spring Rolls.
BTW even my VERY FUSSY mom enjoyed them and that is saying something lol
After I figured how to roll them things went smoothly. Next time I will omit the noodles and use all cole slaw mix. They really do cook in a short amount of time. Some of mine were extra brown at first because I was worried they wouldn't be done....but they were.
Very good & easy recipe!! One note i would like to make though is that i did end up freezing the remainder & when i did take them out of the bag the next day, they stuck together & started falling apart, so i had to remove the filling & wrap them new again. So i personally wouldn't try to freeze these babies. You're better off just making enough to fry up for a meal.
