  • 10 ounces shredded cabbage 3-4 loosely packed cups, a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw mix works here
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup finely diced green onions without the whites
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 in package wonton wrappers found the produce department
  • oil for frying


  • Finely grate the ginger and garlic on a box grater. If you don’t have a box grater, just chop it as finely as you can.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and cook the ground pork until no pink remains, breaking any large chunks.Season with half the salt and a dash of pepper. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of oil and heat over medium high.
  • Add in the ginger and garlic. Cook 30 seconds then add the cabbage, carrots, and onions and toss well.
  • Add the remaining salt and dash of pepper.
  • Saute 5-7 minutes just until the vegetables soften slightly. Add the pork back in. 
  • Add the soy sauce and water mixture, tossing well.
  • Cook until the liquid evaporates, just a minute or two more.
  • Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • Once the filling is cool enough to handle, start forming your egg rolls.
  • Using one wonton wrapper at a time, lay it in front of you in a diamond shape with a point toward you. Add about 3 tablespoons of filling to the center and roll up the point closest to you. Tuck in the sides as you continue to roll to the other point.
  • Seal the open edge by rubbing water on the inside of the seam with your fingers.
  • Bring 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees in a medium pot. Cook the egg rolls a few at a time, turning frequently until evenly golden–about 6-7 minutes each.
  • Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with sweet and sour sauce, spicy mustard, or Duck sauce.
  • Makes 14-16 egg rolls
