Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For filling, in a large skillet cook pork, ginger, and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink; drain off any fat. Add cabbage, water chestnuts, carrot, and onion. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. In a small bowl stir together soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

  • Preheat oven to 200°F. For each egg roll, place an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with a corner pointing toward you. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the filling across and just below center or egg roll wrapper. Fold bottom corner over filling, tucking it under on the other side. Fold the side corners over filling, forming an envelope shape. Roll egg roll toward remaining corner. Moisten top corner with water; press firmly to seal.

  • In a heavy large saucepan heat 2 inches vegetable oil to 365°F (or heat oil in an electric fryer according to manufacturer's directions). Fry egg rolls, half at a time, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in the preheated oven while frying remaining egg rolls. Serve warm egg rolls with Sweet-and-Sour Sauce.

Air Fryer Directions:
  • Preheat air fryer*. Prepare egg rolls as directed above in step 1. Brush surface of egg rolls lightly with vegetable oil. Place 4 egg rolls in the basket. Cook at 365°F* for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden, turning once. Keep warm in the preheated oven while frying remaining egg rolls.


Some air fryers require preheating and some do not. Read manufacturer's directions and preheat if directed. Some air fryers have temperature settings and some do not. Choose 365°F if available. A wide variety of air fryers are available and not all are the same, so times given may vary.
