Why make your own? No waiting in lines, no take out trash, you can adjust the recipes for your tastes - and frankly, it's a lot of fun to make. In my weekly post on the Green Phone Booth, I share some ideas on just how easy it is: including our family favorite "Chicken in a pot," white rice and stir-fried mushrooms.
In the meantime, here's a family recipe for egg rolls from a friend. Enjoy!
1 head cabbage
1 can drained bean sprouts
1 bunch green onions
Sautee vegetables with soy sauce and sesame oil.
Brown 1 pound ground beef, adding soy sauce to taste. Mix with vegetables. Wrap mix in 2 packages of egg roll wrappers. (Tuck in the corners and use water to "seal" the edges so the filler doesn't come out during frying.)
Fry egg rolls in vegetable oil 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
