Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls (from a Chinese person)

February 15, 2008

I'd give these 10 stars if I could! I had to make some changes based on what I had on hand (no time for a trip to the store!) and they were still excellent! My changes: ground pork for matchstick cut BBQ pork, fresh bean sprouts for cabbage (about 3/4s were added and cooked, the other 1/4 were added at the last minute for more crunch). I was making potstickers for this meal, too... they had cabbage and pork... and I needed to use the bean sprouts. These were better than any I have ever purchased! And I do have a jar of MSG, so added that, as well. (My only editorial comment is that SOME people need to get over the "authentic" part because MSG is not 300 years old! Family recipes are adapted over time and MSG is a good addition. We should just be glad that the recipe was shared with us!!) My husband loves potstickers but these are MUCH quicker and easier to make, so I fill him up with these and make potstickers as a side dish! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!! IT IS WONDERFUL!!
