Pork and Shrimp Egg Rolls
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 medium head of cabbage, finely shredded
- 5 or 6 green onions, chopped
- 3 or 4 large carrots, grated
- 3 or 4 stalks of celery chopped
- 1 cup of mushrooms chopped
- 1/2 pound cooked salad shrimp
- 3 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 3 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- egg roll wrappers
- vegetable oil for frying
- Mandarin Orange Sauce, Thai Peanut Sauce, or another Asian sauce for dipping
- Brown the pork and add the 1/4 teaspoon salt and fresh ginger for seasoning. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
- Cook the cabbage, green onion, carrot, and celery until it is wilted and tender. Add the seasoned cooked meat, shrimp, and mushrooms. Stir in the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
- Place a mound of filling on the center of egg roll wrappers. Fold the left corner across the filling then roll the filing. Turn the top and bottom corners up and down respectively. Roll to wrap the egg roll into a tight cylinder.
- Cook the egg rolls in hot oil until the outsides are brown.
Cook’s note: These can be cooked in hot oil in a sauce pan on the stove top. Make sure that the oil is about two-inches deep and 350 to 375 degrees. If the first egg roll does not cook rapidly enough, turn the heat up. (Slowly cooked egg rolls will be greasy.) To bake place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until browned.
