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.

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.

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.

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!!!!
