Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together cabbage, carrots, sprouts, celery, and onion. Stir in shrimp, soy sauce, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  2. Pour beaten egg into a skillet placed over medium heat; cook flat and thin, flipping once, until done. Remove from skillet, cool, and chop finely. Stir egg into cabbage mixture. Sprinkle top with cornstarch, mix, and allow to sit 10 minutes.
  3. Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water. Set aside.
  4. Place 2 or 3 tablespoons of the shrimp mixture into the center of an egg roll skin. Dip a spoon into the water and cornstarch mixture, and moisten all corners but the bottom corner. Fold the egg roll skin from the bottom over the mixture, making a tight tube of the shrimp mixture. Fold corners in from the sides, and press to stick against folded roll. Then roll the rest of the way. Repeat with remaining egg roll wrappers.
  5. Pour vegetable oil into a deep frying pan to a depth of 3 or 4 inches, and heat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Carefully place egg rolls into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Remove to paper towels.

These are the best egg rolls ever! I fried some and baked some in the oven at 400 F for 30 min.

Amazing, though I think it was lacking in something. Next time I think I'll add some oyster sauce or something like that.

these came out tasting JUST like egg rolls you get from a chinese restaurant! i added a little imitation crab, but other than that followed the recipe. i also didnt fry at the end, i brushed with olive oil and broiled them for about 5 min and they got crispy on both sides. didnt feel like the mess of frying. they were still great!

These were not bad, but we did not prefer the taste of the shrimp; it seemed to overpower the entire roll. I'll probably try this again sometime using chicken.
