Filled with juicy pork and aromatic vegetables, these rolls are crispy and delectable. Best of all, you can make these easy homemade egg rolls up to a day in advance of when you plan to serve them. Easy Egg Rolls are a delicious appetizer or side to your stir-fry meal!


1 pound ground pork
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 quart peanut oil, for frying
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
2 cups cabbage, shredded
2 ounces carrots, shredded
8 (7-inch square) egg roll wrappers
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, optional


Step 1

Season the pork with the ginger and garlic powder and mix thoroughly.

Step 2

Heat the pork in a medium skillet, stirring, until pork is cooked through and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3

In another large skillet, heat the peanut oil to about 375 degrees F over medium-high heat.

Step 4

While the oil is heating, combine the flour and water in a bowl until they form a paste.

Step 5

In a separate bowl combine the cabbage, carrots, and the reserved pork mixture. Mix everything together until well combined.

Step 6

Lay out one egg roll wrapper with a corner pointed toward you. Place about a 1/4-1/3 cup of the cabbage, carrot, and pork mixture on the egg roll wrapper and fold the corner over the mixture.

Step 7

Fold the left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll.

Step 8

Brush a bit of the flour paste on the final corner to help seal the egg roll.

Step 9

Repeat for the rest of the egg roll wrappers

Step 10

Place the egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 2 minutes.

Step 11

Remove the egg rolls from the oil and drain them on paper towels or on a rack.

Step 12

Serve topped with sesame seeds!
