Makes about 20 egg rolls
1 Package Azumaya Large Square Egg Roll Wraps
1 pound lean ground beef, pork, or chicken (I used chicken that I've chopped finely in my food processor)
1 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced (or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger if you don't have fresh on hand)
2 Cups Cabbage, finely chopped **hint- I've used about 3 cups of classic coleslaw mix for the cabbage and carrots, easier cuz it's already shredded)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup celery, sliced paper thin
1 can Bean sprouts, drained
3 Green onions, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons Oyster sauce
3 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce (Oyster and Hoisin sauce are found in the asain section of most grocery stores)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Vegetable oil for deep-frying
Mustard, ketchup or sweet & sour sauce for dipping
Brown meat ,ginger and garlic over medium high heat until browned and meat is cooked through. Add cabbage, carrots, celery, bean sprouts,and green onions: cook 2 minutes. Stir in oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, salt and pepper. Let mixture cool. Use 2 tablespoons filling for each egg roll. Follow folding directions on package of egg roll wrappers. To deep-fry: heat oil to 350 degrees, and deep-fry a few at a time, turning occasionally, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels. (I usually deep fry mine but you can oven bake)
To oven-bake: brush each egg roll with 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the egg rolls are crisp on the bottoms; about 7 minutes; turn and bake until crisp all over, about 5 minutes.
Serve with mustard, ketchup, or sweet & sour sauce if desired.
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
6 Tablespoon Catsup
2 chicken bouillon cubes, crushed(or 2 teaspoons granule chicken bouillon)
3/4 cup white vinegar
6 Tablespoons water (I usually dissolve my bouillon cubes in this if you get it really hot)
4 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce.
Mix all together in saucepan and bring to boil, cook on a medium low heat until thickens. Makes a great dipping sauce for eggrolls or great sweet and sour chicken.
