Hands On Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
55 mins


  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

  • 5 ounce ground pork

  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

  • 3 cup finely sliced green cabbage (about 6 oz.)

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 large egg, well beaten

  • 6 egg roll wrappers

  • Cooking spray


  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and garlic; cook until well browned, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cabbage and green onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is starting to wilt, about 3 minutes. Stir in lime juice and soy sauce. Remove from heat.

  2. Lay out 3 egg roll wrappers with 1 point away from you; brush 1 side completely with egg. Place 3 to 4 tablespoons of the filling in the center of each wrapper. Roll the point closest to you over the filling; then bring the side points into the middle. Continue rolling away from you to form a tight seal around the filling. Repeat the process with the remaining wraps and filling.

  3. Place the egg rolls in the basket of an air fryer and coat with cooking spray. Cook at 390°F until golden brown, about 10 minutes, turning halfway through.
