Use your deep fryer to make fresh homemade egg rolls. This quick and easy recipe can be completed from start to finish in less than 30 minutes.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 7 min
Ready in: 27 min
Yields: 4 egg rolls


  • 4 oz ground pork
  • 1/2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tspn grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bok choy
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tspn cornstarch
  • 1/4 tspn sugar
  • 1/8 tspn salt
  • 4 egg roll skins
  • 6 oz sweet and sour sauce
  • cooking oil


  1. Mix the pork, garlic, and ginger together in a skillet. Cook over medium heat to brown the pork (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from heat.
  2. Drain the fat. Add bok choy, carrot, onion, and water chestnuts. Return to heat, and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes while stirring. Remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Pour the mixture from the bowl into the skillet. Return the skillet to heat, and cook for another minute while stirring. Remove from heat, and allow to cool.
  4. Set an egg roll skin on a flat surface with a corner of the skin pointing toward you. Using a spoon spread approximately 4 tablespoons of the pork mixture from the skillet across the skin slightly below the center. Fold the bottom corner up over the pork mixture and tuck that corner in below the pork filling. At this point your egg roll should resemble "Image 1" to the right. Now, fold the side corners in slightly past center (forming an envelope shape) as depicted in "Image 2". Next, drizzle a few drops of water onto the remaining corner (top), and roll your egg roll up to it. Press firmly to seal.
  5. Preheat 2 inches of cooking oil to 365 degrees F. in your deep fryer.Fry the egg rolls just until golden-brown (about 2 minutes). Remove the egg rolls, and allow them to drain for a few minutes atop paper towels.
  6. Serve your homemade egg rolls with sweet and sour sauce.

Quick Tips

  • If you have a small deep-fat fryer, you may have to cook your egg rolls in batches (perhaps 2 at a time)
  • Always follow the manufacturers instructions for your particular deep fryer. Never fill the unit with oil below or above the minimum/maximum fill lines if it is equipped with such.

      Interesting recipe for egg rolls. For a more delicate version, try substituting fresh bean sprouts for the bok choy and scallions for the onions and cut back on the carrots a little.
