Spicy Beef Egg Rolls

These egg rolls are different and yet similar to the traditional one we are used to!

 

1 small onion, cut in wedges
3 chili peppers, seeded
1 clove garlic
1 thin slice gingerroot
1/2 lb ground beef
1 large carrot, shredded
1 turnip, shredded
1/4 teas salt
2 eggs, beaten
10 egg roll skins

 

In a food processor, combine the onion, peppers, garlic and ginger; process until almost smooth. In a large skillet, cook the beef, carrots and turnip over high heat, stirring frequently until meat is browned. Drain off fat and stir in the onion mixture. Remove from heat and stir in the eggs. With points facing towards you, place 1/4 cup of the meat mixture, just below the center in a diagonal form. Fold up bottom of wrapper, tuck in the sides, moisten remaining flap and continue to roll up; press firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Fry bundles in deep oil heated to 365 degrees, a few at a time until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve with your favorite Chinese condiment. Enjoy!

Fresher Homemade Egg Rolls
I prefer this version with fresh veggies and some canned!

 

1/2 cup oyster sauce
2 tbls teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tbls soy sauce
1tbls minced garlic
1 tbls grated fresh ginger
2 bunches green onions, cut in 1/4 inch pieces
1/2 head of cabbage, slivered
3-4 stalks of celery, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded medium
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 can (28 oz) bean sprouts, drained
1 small can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
3 cups cooked meat, chopped (pork or chicken)
2 packages egg roll wraps
2 eggs
Stir fry together all vegetables in a little oil until cabbage is crisp-tender. Add all liquids and the meat, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate over night. Continue as in the above recipe, “Homemade Egg Rolls”, remembering to work quickly. It really helps if you have someone to help you when it comes to the frying, one to wrap and one to do the frying part. These little treats freeze really well which is nice because they do take awhile to prepare, but they are well worth it,,,,,,,trust me! And just a little note, if you have left-over egg roll wraps, slice them up and fry them in the hot oil until golden brown, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt. These are great atop a nice fresh salad…………
