Best Egg Rolls (RECIPE)


  • 1 pound ground pork or beef
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (adjust to taste)
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 ounces shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 quart peanut oil for frying (or as needed)
  • 8 (7-inch square) egg roll wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large bowl, season the ground pork or beef with the ground ginger and garlic powder. Mix until thoroughly combined.
    • Cook the seasoned meat in a medium skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until browned and crumbly, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    • In a large bowl, combine the cooked meat, shredded cabbage, and shredded carrots. Mix until the filling is well combined.
  2. Make the Flour Paste:
    • In a small bowl, mix the flour and water together until a paste forms. This will be used to seal the egg rolls.
  3. Assemble the Egg Rolls:
    • Lay one egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface with one corner pointed toward you (like a diamond).
    • Place about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the filling in the center of the wrapper.
    • Fold the bottom corner up and over the filling.
    • Fold the left and right corners in toward the center.
    • Roll the egg roll away from you, tucking and rolling it tightly towards the top corner.
    • Brush a bit of the flour paste over the inside of the top corner to help seal the egg roll.
  4. Fry the Egg Rolls:
    • Heat the peanut oil in a large skillet to about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or medium-high heat.
    • Fry the egg rolls in the hot oil, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy, about 5 to 8 minutes.
    • Remove the egg rolls from the oil and drain on paper towels or a wire rack.
  5. Serve:
    • Place the egg rolls on a serving plate and sprinkle sesame seeds over the top if desired.
    • Enjoy your crispy, delicious egg rolls!

These egg rolls can be served with a variety of dipping sauces, such as sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, or a spicy chili sauce. Enjoy!
