    Default Eggrolls

    Eggrolls


    Recipe Description
    Easy, Inexpensive (aka-CHEAP)
    Preparation Steps:
    Dehydrate cabbage--you can blanch before dehydrating or choose not to. I have experimented both ways--it doesn't matter. I'm sure you already have dehydrated onion too!
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    30-40 minutes (depending on how fast you can roll them)
    Ingredients:
    1 pkg chopped cabbage coleslaw-bag-dehydrated

    1 lb ground beef
    1 pkg eggroll wrappers
    soy sauce
    minced garlic
    1 T dehydrated onion
    egg wash-optional
    Cooking oil-your choice
    Serves:
    15 individual eggrolls
    Directions:
    Brown ground beef with onion;
    add cabbage into cooked meat add soy sauce (I eyeball it--4 shots should do it)
    you might use 1/4 cup water and let it steam the cabbage mix if you want.
    Remove meat mixture from stove and let it cool for about 10-15 minutes; If it's too hot, it will melt thru your wrapper.
    Place one serving spoon of mixture on wrapper, roll according to diagram shown. (It's really like rolling a burrito) Just make sure not to tear the wrapper and have the ends closed.

    I usually "seal" the eggroll with an egg/water wash.

    Do not be discouraged if you tear a couple...sometimes they tear, you can pinch the dough back together

    Fry in hot oil till crispy on one side then turn and fry on the other side....it usually takes 3-4 minutes per side.

    Drain on paper towel: they hold heat for a long while so don't let the kids bite into them right away. (ask how I know)

    This versatile recipe can be used with any type of meat or you can go completely veg!

    Feel free to add more veggies to yours.

    I serve this with soy sauce on the side for dipping..I have one kiddo who has a reaction to soy sauce so I dilute hers just a little.

    I can make this recipe for about $5. I hope you can too.

    Enjoy!

    Mmm I would absolutely love to try these with a nice sweet and sour pork over rice. I'll have to give it a shot this weekend.

    Thanks for posting your recipe. I'm going to throw some cabbage on this afternoon. I'm trying to learn ways to use my chicken flavored TVP, so I'll try substituting it in here for the ground beef. I'll report back soon...with pictures, of course!

    It doesn't say how much oil to use...are you deep frying or pan frying yours?

    Vig, I am pan frying them but I have deep fried them in the past. Deep frying is the fastest, but pan frying is the easiest for me.

    Do these freeze well? And do you fry them frozen? I really like the "bulk" idea.

    Thanks!

    These freeze fantastically! (is that a word lol)

    I fry them before freezing.

    You can also re-heat the frozen ones in your microwave....

    And then do you re-fry or bake? (temp?) I know nuking the store bought ones usually makes them soggy

    Thanks

    Nope, I just put them together, fry them, let them cool and put in zip lock baggies and put in the freezer.

    When I am ready to eat them, I take them out of the freezer, wrap in a paper towel, nuke for around 1 minute (your time may differ due to your microwave wattage)

    They are yummo. I like them because my kids can help themselves and dh can grab some for work...sandwiches get so boring.

    I cant wait to hear how yours turn out...let me know.

    I made these for dinner tonight...they were great! To make it vegetarian I just rehydrated 1 cup dry TVP instead of using ground beef.
