The eggrolls and Duk Sauce were divine! I surprised my soon-to-be-inlaws and friends with this recipe!! Will continue to make it for years to come!

These egg rolls were better than any I've had in a restaurant in a long time. Admittedly, I made several changes. I omitted the bamboo shoots and water chestnuts and in their place added bean sprouts and grated carrot. I also omitted the pork and instead doubled the chicken. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add just a touch more soy sauce to the filling. Looking forward to making these many more times!

Instead of frying my homemade egg rolls, I heat my oven to 450 and brush both sides with a little of olive oil Bake for 10min then flip and bake another 10min. Then they aren't soaking up as much oil.

The Chicken and Pork Egg Rolls are delicious, however, I found the cabbage a bit overpowering so I subsituted with around 4 cups of bean sprouts. The sauce is amazing!

These are the best! They are better than most Chinese restaurant egg rolls! The recipe makes a lot, so I freeze them or give them to friends. For freezing, I space UNFRIED eggrolls apart on a cookie sheet in the freezer, then wrap each in wax paper and store in airtight container in freezer. Just thaw in refrigerator before deep frying.
