For the Filling:

  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (for cooking filling)

For the Wrappers:

  • 20-25 egg roll wrappers (available in most grocery stores)
  • 1 egg, beaten (for sealing the wrappers)

For Frying:

  • Vegetable oil (for deep frying)

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
    • Add the ground pork or chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking it apart with a spoon.
    • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
    • Stir in the shredded cabbage, carrots, and bean sprouts. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender but still crisp.
    • Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Stir well to combine.
    • Add the thinly sliced green onions, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Remove the filling from the heat and let it cool slightly.
  2. Assemble the Egg Rolls:
    • Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean, flat surface with one corner pointing towards you, forming a diamond shape.
    • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the filling onto the center of the wrapper.
    • Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling, tucking it in snugly.
    • Fold the left and right corners towards the center, over the filling, forming an envelope shape.
    • Roll the egg roll away from you towards the top corner, keeping it tight.
    • Brush a bit of the beaten egg on the top corner to seal the egg roll.
    • Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Fry the Egg Rolls:
    • In a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
    • Carefully add a few egg rolls at a time to the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
    • Fry the egg rolls for about 3-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy.
    • Use a slotted spoon to remove the egg rolls from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the egg rolls hot with your favorite dipping sauces, such as sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, or spicy chili sauce.

These egg rolls are sure to be a hit at any gathering, providing a perfect blend of crispy exterior and savory filling. With their delightful crunch and flavorful interior, they make an excellent appetizer or snack.
