Cook Time 20 min
Yield 8 egg rolls


  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 3/4 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup salad shrimp, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup canned bean sprouts, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 refrigerated egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice, optional
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. In a large skillet, cook pork over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove pork with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, stir-fry the cabbage, celery and onions in oil until crisp-tender. Add the shrimp, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, garlic, soy sauce, sugar and reserved pork; stir-fry 4 minutes longer or until liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat.
  3. Position one egg roll wrapper with a corner facing you. Spoon 1/3 cup filling on the bottom third of wrapper. Fold a bottom corner over filling; fold sides over filling toward center. Moisten top corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  4. In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  5. For sauce, combine the sugar, cornstarch and seasoned salt in a saucepan; gradually add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with egg rolls.
