These are the BEST Homemade Egg Rolls made with seasoned ground pork and fresh vegetables tightly rolled up in egg roll wrappers, then fried to crispy delicious perfection.

INGREDIENTS
1 pound ground pork
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp ground ginger
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 small carrot, shredded
1 package (25 7-inch square) egg roll wrappers
2 tbsps flour
2 tbsps water
1 quart peanut or vegetable oil, for frying
your favorite Asian dipping sauce

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cook the pork and garlic in the vegetable oil until the pork is no longer pink.  Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and ground ginger.  Set aside to slightly cool.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork mixture with the shredded carrots and cabbage.  In a small bowl, make a paste out of the flour and water.
3. Lay out an egg roll wrapper with a corner pointed towards you.  Place 1/4 cup of the pork and vegetable mixture into the center of the wrapper. Brush the corner farthest from you with the flour paste.  Fold the corner closest to you up over the mixture.  Fold the left and right corners in towards the center, then tightly roll.  The flour paste will help seal the egg roll.  Repeat until all of the filling is used.  (I ended up with 13 egg rolls total.)
4. Fry the egg rolls in the peanut oil (just a few at a time) until they are golden brown.  Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.  Serve with your favorite Asian dipping sauce.

NOTES:
To save time you can use pre-shredded coleslaw mix in place of the cabbage and carrots!  And I think next time I'm adding mushrooms. YUM!
