“I've been on an Asian-inspired cooking kick lately, and with the winter weather I set out to create the perfect eggroll. (Well, technically these are spring rolls.) This recipe is very flexible. Use any ground meat you want and it should work just fine. Add any other veggies you like, but don't use too many wet ingredients. Don't fear the deep-frying! It is worth the trouble. I recommend corn oil. These freeze very well, and in just 4 minutes fry to perfection in 350 degree oil. Enjoy them wrapped in a lettuce leaf with some shredded carrot and chopped fresh basil. The best sauce for dipping these is a sweet chili sauce with a dash of vinegar and nuoc mam.”
