Egg Rolls

1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 large head cabbage, finely shredded
2 green onions sliced
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon white sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 quarts vegetable oil for deep frying
1 (16 ounce) package egg roll wrappers

1.In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef, with onion and garlic,

*Then add 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 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, green onions, salt, and pepper. Continue to saute until cabbage is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

3.Return meat mixture to pan and stir together with cabbage over low heat until heated through. Remove from heat.  Let cool all the way. I put mine in the fridge for about 20 min. That way it doesn't start to cook your egg roll wrappers when you are rolling them.

4.Pour oil into a deep pan and heat to 350 degrees F ( Or you can bake them)
5.Fill each egg roll wrapper with approximately 1/4 cup of filling and roll up . Drain any juice that you might get while scooping.

 Fold up and over the mixture
 Press and fold in sides.
 Roll up the egg roll and seal with water.

6. Fry in preheated oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
* Or bake them at 400 degrees for 25 min turning over after 15 min. (That's what I did) if you are going to bake them spread some oil over them lightly with your fingers.
 These are the egg rolls after being turned at the 15 min mark
These are the finished egg rolls

* Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
*I also wrapped all the egg roll wraps and froze a whole bag of them uncooked so that I can make them at a later time.
* This recipe makes 20 egg rolls
