Sealing Paste Ingredients:

-3 tbsp of corn starch

-1/4 cup of water 

How to Make Egg Roll Filling:

1. Place ground pork in a skillet

2. Chop celery, garlic, and mushrooms finely (or use food processor), then place mixture in pan with pork

3. While pork and vegetables are cooking, boil bean sprouts

4. Once pork and vegetables are fully cooked, drain and place in big mixing bowl

5. After bean sprouts are cooked, place in mixing bowl with other ingredients

6. Chop cabbage finely or use food processor, then place in mixing bowl

How to Fold your Egg Rolls:

2. Place contents in the center of the wrap

3. Before folding egg rolls, make a mixture of 3 tbsp of corn starch and 1/4 cup of water to make a paste, use this mixture to seal the egg roll when you fold - I place a little bit of the mixture on each corner

4. Fold bottom corner over filling

7. Stick the last corner to the egg roll with the paste 

7. Make sure egg roll is wrapped tight so contents don’t fall out while frying

How to Fry your Egg Rolls:

1. Heat your canola oil to medium-high heat; you want to make sure that you have enough oil in your pan or fryer to completely submerge the egg rolls as they cook

2. Once oil is hot, place egg rolls in fryer. Keep your eyes on the egg rolls at all times

3. Cook egg rolls until they are crispy and golden brown

-I love paring these egg rolls with duck sauce

-You can also bake the egg rolls in the oven. If you do so, use non-stick cooking spray on your baking sheet or pan

-You can use frozen shrimp and pork, but I usually make it with fresh ingredients

-You can choose to boil your chopped cabbage or not. Sometimes my grandma does, sometimes she doesn’t. Leave this step up for personal preference
