Ingredients:

  • half of 6.75oz package of vermicelli rice noodles
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 2 medium carrots (grated or thinly julienned)
  • 4 cups of green cabbage (thinly sliced)
  • 40 eggrolls or spring roll wrappers (about 8″x8″)
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • peanut oil (or canola oil for frying)

Directions:

Step 1

Start by prepping the vermicelli noodles. Put it in a large bowl with very hot water and separate it with a couple of forks. Let it sit for 5 to 7 minutes or until the noodles are tender. Next, slice 4 cups of green cabbage and 8 oz of mushrooms. Back to the noodles, drain them, then rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process and keep them from sticking together. Transfer the noodles to the cutting board and cut them into 1″ pieces. Transfer them to a large mixing bowl. After this, peel and grate 2 medium carrots and finely chop half of a large onion. Next, place a large skillet over medium heat with 1 tbsp of oil. Add 1 lb of ground pork and break it up using a spatula. Saute the meat just until it’s cooked through. Stir in 1/2 tsp of salt in the end, then take the meat off the heat and transfer it to the bowl with the noodles. After this, add another 2 tbsp of oil to the same skillet then add your veggies (chopped onions, carrots, and mushrooms.) Saute together for about 5 to 6 minutes while stirring frequently. Once the veggies softened, add the 4 cups of shredded cabbage. Stir together and saute for another 1 to 2 minutes or just until the cabbage is wilted. Stir in 1/2 tsp of salt and take the mixture off the heat.

Step 2

Transfer the veggies to the same mixing bowl. Stir all well to combine. Next, add 1/2 tsp each of salt and black pepper, 2 tbsp of soy sauce, and 1 tsp of sesame oil. Mix together. (You can add more seasoning based on your preference.) Next, thaw the egg roll wrappers at room temperature for 45 minutes and make sure to cover them with a damp paper towel which will prevent them from drying out. After this, peel 1 wrapper at a time and make sure to cover the remaining with a damp paper towel. Place the wrapper onto a clean work surface in a diamond shape. Use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop out the filling and place it onto the bottom third of the wrapper. Pull the bottom corner over the filling and tuck it under. Make sure to keep a tight roll as you go, then fold in the corners, roll it up just a little more, and seal it using some beaten egg. (Brush that with a pastry brush lightly over the edges and continue rolling tightly to seal.) Continue this process until you finish up the filling.

Step 3

Fry the egg rolls at 350 degrees F for about 5 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Once they are done frying, transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
