Asian Inspired Egg Rolls step by step
- Add all meat ingredients together, mix well. Let sit 15 minutes to allow flavors to infuse..
- Prepare onion, garlic and celery first.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in largish sized stir-fry, wok or skillet, on medium high..
- Add meat mixture, chop up and turn to cook.
- When the meat is about half way cooked, add the onion, garlic and celery. Stir to combine..
- Setup a large bowl with a bunch of paper towels at the bottom.
- When the onion is translucent, add the chopped cabbage and water chestnuts.
- Turn/stir until the cabbage is mostly cooked.
- Mix corn starch with water from sauce, add to pan, stir well, about 1-2 Minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium.
- Add rest of sauce ingredients to pan, stir for about 2 minutes..
- Add green onions and bean sprouts, stir to combine, cook for about 1 minute well stirring..
- Turn of heat, give one last stir. Transfer to the bowl with paper towels at the bottom..
- Allow to cool down so you can handle it without burning yourself, about 15-20 minutes..
- Mix the assembly cornstarch and water. This will be the "glue" that holds the wrapper together..
- I pretty much followed the instruction on the wrappers I bought. Pretty straight forward. A picture explains it the best, please refer to this step picture..
- Layout a wrapper, using your finger, run a line of the "glue" along the top two edges, see picture..
- Place some of the filling in the middle, leave about an inch from the edge, roll like the picture in the prior step..
- I find if you try to make it to right, the wrapper will rip. So just snug it a little, let the "glue" hold it together..
- Put enough oil in a pan to go about half way up the wrapped rolls. I found medium heat was just right on my stove-top. I don't have a thermometer, so it was all guess work, trail and error. I started on medium high, but they cooked to fast, got too dark..
- Carefully place egg rolls in the hot oil, don't overcrowd them..
- Just keep an eye on them and flip them over when they look right to you. Mine were about 2 1/2 minutes the first side, and 1 1/2 minutes the second side.
- We just had a variety of sauces, some dipping sauce, mustard, mayonnaise and hot sauce.
- I tried to be neat, I really did, just reside yourself, this is a messy proposition..
