1 pkg. (16 oz.) shredded coleslaw
1 cup cooked, diced meat (poultry or shrimp)
1 1/2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. egg roll wrappers
Stir together first 6 ingredients: slaw, meat, ginger, garlic, pepper, salt.
* WIDD (what I did differently) tossed the first 6 ingredients into a skillet with some soy sauce, until warmed and covered.*
Brush outer edge of egg roll wrapper with water *WIDD egg/water mixture.* Spoon a 1/3 cup of mixture into the center of the wrapper. *Make sure filling has cooled before placing in the wrapper, it being hot seemed to tear the wrapper.* Fold bottom corner over filling and tucking the corner under the filling, fold over left and right corners; gently press to seal. Pour oil, depth of 3 inches (a lot of oil) into a dutch oven, heat until 375 degrees. Fry egg rolls in batches of 3-4, until golden brown. Serve immediantly.
These egg rolls were amazing! I was so proud of us for trying something we have never made before. I used chicken for our meat. Also, if veggies are in season shredd your own slaw mix: cabbage, carrots. This is also the first time I have ever used fresh ginger - now what to do with the rest....any ideas? The wrapers is tear some but like I noted before I believe it is because we warmed up the slaw mix before hand, the original recipe did not call for us heating up the mixture or using soy sauce.
