Crispy, Homemade Spring Rolls

Updated on November 21, 2015
Source

Filling possibilities are almost endless

shrimp
ground beef
ground chicken
ground turkey
cabbage, onion, carrot, bean sprouts
ground pork
To add a little zip---add chopped hot pepper (your choice, finely minced)
cabbage, onion, carrot

Vegetarians gather round...these can be made with a host of veggies---choose those you like, follow directions as given, omitting the meat of course.

Allow veggies to cook al dente...you do not want them overcooked...they will be mushy.

4.8 stars from 4 ratings of Crispy, Homemade Spring Rolls

Hurry up recipe

1 package of coleslaw mix with carrots

1 medium onion, chopped

3 teaspoons garlic salt

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 can bean sprouts or 1 cup bean sprouts

1 pound ground beef

Cook onion till translucent. Then add beef and let it brown.

Brown beef. Drain excess oil. Add all seasonings. Top with veggies. Toss till al dente. Allow to cool. Wrap in spring roll wrappers as demonstrated in the photographs.

Cook in medium high oil till golden brown. Remove from skillet to paper towels to drain.

Crispy, spring rolls are full of flavor and texture. You can make an all vegetarian version or fill them with your favorite meat(s).

When I lived in Japan, the young woman who would baby sit my daughter while I went off to school, taught me how to make spring rolls. This recipe is much simpler than the one she used however if you have lots of time you can use the original recipe she gave me. I really do like it but for a quick version of these rolls, give these a try.

These are a great appetizer, or side dish for a homemade Chinese dinner. They are yummy the next day cold or reheated.

Be careful...it is difficult to each just one.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 16 rolls

Redneck Spring Rolls

At Sonny's Restaurant and probably in local establishments in your town you can now get redneck spring rolls.

They are wrapped in the same wrapper as is used in my recipe but have coleslaw, barbecued beef, pork, or chicken and other veggies if desired tucked up inside.

You can make your own. These are next on my agenda.

And I might add, they are tasty!!!!

      Hi Peggy Thanks!! They are easy and they are as good, better, than they look in the photo. Every time we have a get together of some kind, this is what I am asked to bring. Yum. Gyoza usually are on the side...I don't remember if I have shared that. I will have to....they are yummy too.

      I have made the kind of Vietnamese spring rolls that do not need frying and love them. Of course I also like the fried kind...but have just not made that variety although we eat them in Chinese restaurants. Your directions, photos, etc. are great! Thanks!

      Good morning Suzanne

      They are the best!! And the delightful part is you can choose whatever filings YOU like.

      The best tips I can give is to use a very light oil, have oil hot, watch carefully, drain well on paper toweling and you have a great appetizer. YUM

      Angels are on the way....ps

      I woke up very hungry this morning and your spring rolls photo caught my eye! My father is always making these, and while I need to watch my waistline, I do admit to the odd indulgence of them - cabbage is the best in these isn't it? Voted beautiful for the beautiful photos and rated!

      Hi Lisa

      You will enjoy these for sure. They are a hit every time they are served. And best of all you can control was you put in them and the type of oil you use.

      I hope you have a chance to try them. Thanks for stopping by.

      Have a lovely weekend. Sending Angels your way this afternoon. :) ps

      Hi KoffeeKlatch Gals

      Glad to see you visiting again today.Thanks for your comment. It is important to get feedback which I can use to make future articles better.

      These are probably easier to make than gyoza as they are larger and not quite so tricky to wrap.

      Hi Bill

      These are a favorite in my family. Whenever there is a party, I am asked to make them. One reason I like to make them at home is that I can control what goes in them. You can pick and choose ingredients to make them just the way you prefer.

      I hope all is well out in Olympia.

      Sending you many Angels today :) ps

      If you put a bit of water in a skillet and cover the rolls, let steam probably five minutes, I am guessing that should do the trick. :) ps

      Hi janshares

      They are both of those---easy and yummy. My grandson just came over and got a batch to take home to his Momma and Daddy. I had not made them in a long while because they are fried and I do not need fried foods often. They are sooo delicious it is difficult to have just one.

      Maybe you can make a batch and share with someone as your name says :)

      Thanks for visiting
