Delish. I used fresh ginger. Would add even more next time. Also medium Italian sausage instead of reg pork sausage. Will be making this again.
I have been underwhelmed by my local Chinese take out egg rolls which seem to be previously frozen & devoid of meat or flavor. These were very good and I would make them again. This was my first try at making egg rolls, they were easier and tastier than I thought they would be. The coleslaw mix is key to the flavor and the ease of making these. I used shredded pork from a pernil I had made perviously. I left out the water chestnuts and added a bit of Chinese five spice powder. The five spice powder added a warming kick. I served them with duck sauce. This recipe along with another recipe on this site for pork fried rice & a jar of red Chinese pork marinade & I'm on my way to making my own Chinese take out at home. Thanks!
First time making egg rolls and they turned out perfectly! I used shredded pork instead of sausage, but I am sure the sausage would be just as good!
this is not a review, so pls ignore the stars. it wouldn't let me post w/o them. i haven't made this recipe but i have frozen plenty of uncooked spring rolls which are very similar. maybe use spring roll wrappers instead of egg roll wrappers when you want to freeze them, but you can freeze uncooked wontons which have the same skin as egg rolls, so it should not be a problem. make sure to lay plastic wrap or foil in between the layers so they won't stick together. when frying, do not thaw, just brush off any ice crystals so the oil won't splatter and fry till golden. when reheating leftovers, do not microwave or they will be soggy. reheat them in the oven. they will be a darker the second time around but they will be crispy.
Great starter egg roll recipe! This was my first attempt at egg rolls and these were awesome. I only change I did was to remove the meat after cooking and cook the cabbage mixture separately. I then split that in half and did half a batch with the pork and the other with left over diced shrimp!
very good thanks for the info
Thiis recipe is perfect. I wish I could say I did it exactly but truthfully as long as the items are approximate and made as instructed you will be happy with the results. Today I used a chicken breast instead of the pork and didn't add the water chestnuts. They are perfect fryed and eaten or freeze the leftover filling and make them on another day. Just make sure to drain the filling before assembling so it doesn't make the dougn(wrapper soggy) or make the oil splatter with leaking liquid. You can't freeze raw rolls. The dough will become yucky when thawing. Either freeze the filling by itself or lightly fry the roll and refry it when needed to be crisp.
Just for the record, you cannot freeze uncooked egg rolls, or they will be impossible to fry. But once fried and cooled, they are very easy to reheat.
