  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef, then mix in onion, garlic, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 2 tablespoons sherry, and ginger. Continue to saute just until onions are tender. Transfer mixture to a bowl and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, saute cabbage with water, 1 tablespoon oil, sugar, and remaining soy sauce, sherry, salt, and pepper. Continue to saute until cabbage is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Return meat mixture to pan and stir together with cabbage over low heat until heated through. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour oil into a deep pan and heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fill each egg roll wrapper with approximately 1/4 cup of filling and roll up according to package directions. Fry in preheated oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

I made them exactly as stated. Sorry they were not all that great. I guess the 5 stars are coming from people who added or took away from this recipe.

Wow! I followed the recipe exactly, except (1) I used two 16-oz bags of cole slaw to save a little work, (2) I added a can of bean sprouts, (3) I used spring roll wrappers because they were muc...

Outstanding! I made very few changes: I browned the ground beef WITH the onion and garlic, drained it, then added the other ingredients in step 1. I omitted the sherry in step 1, and halved it i...

These are wonderful if you lay them out on a cookie sheet and freeze then bag them. You can fix a couple to go with a meal whenever you want.

These eggrolls are great!! To save time, I used the preshredded cabbage in the salad section for coleslaw, and for more flavor, I added minced celery, shredded carrots, and green onions, and coo...

I too omitted the sherry. Just a little hint in wrapping these. I cool the mixture before wrapping, I make sure the filling doesn't have any liquid when wrapping. This prevents the wrapper fr...

I discovered this recipe about a month ago, and I've been asked to make it 4 or 5 times. I substitute cooked chicken, and everyone always has seconds. (I just need pointers on wrapping the egg...

WOW! A really great simple recipe that tasted fantastic! Even impressed the boyfriend with this one. Somethings I had to change: (1) I had no Sherry, so I did some online research and read that ...
