Plenty of ground pork and veggies make this take-out favorite quicker and tastier than delivery. The egg rolls can be fried or baked; surprisingly, calorie-wise, both are about the same.

Cook's Notes

HOW TO ROLL AN EGG ROLL
1. Filling It Up: Lay 3 or 4 egg-roll wrappers flat on counter. (Keep other wrappers covered with a damp paper towel.) Place 1/3 cup pork mixture in center of each.
2. Folding It Up: Using a pastry brush, wet border with egg. Fold point of wrapper that's closest to you over the pork mixture, and tuck under the filling.
3. Folding It In: Fold both side corners toward center of wrapper (they won't meet in the center). It should look like an open envelope.
4. Finishing It Up: Tightly roll up filled pocket to close wrapper, then gently press down to seal the edges.

    With 2.5 pounds of cabbage, there wasn't enough soy and ginger to season the mixture. I thought they were bland and greasy (with no opportunity to drain the ground pork fat). Trying to sauté the large amount of vegetables in only 1 Tablespoon of oil was not possible. I was very disappointed.

    When you make these you don't have to adjust or change anything. They are perfect! I would not bake them though! I did once and they were horrible!!!!! Frying is the way to go. Everything ingredient inside and out just tastes better fried! Well worth the time spent!!!!!

    These egg rolls are so delicious! They have restaurant quality, if not better. They were very easy to make, but they do take time. I used our fat-fryer to cook them, and it worked very well. I'm very grateful for the freezing instructions, so that I can make them in advance, and bake them when I want. I found a copycat recipe for McDonald's sweet and sour sauce. It was delicious, and I highly recommend it. The sauce and egg rolls were SO good!

    Thank you for adding freezing directions, I freeze wontons and ravioli but didn't know if I could do the same w/ the egg rolls. As a busy, single person this is a great benefit. Also thanks for the info that I can fry with less guilt, it is not that different calorically from baking :)
