I first had these while helping one of our chef instructors teach a Kitchens With A Mission cooking class.

* I prefer to cook the ground pork before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients.

How to Make Shanghai-Style Egg Rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl, mix all of the egg roll ingredients together. Place a heaping tablespoon of the mixture near the edge of the egg roll wrapper. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll up tightly sealing the ends with a few drops of water. Make the rest of the rolls in the same way until all the filling is used up.
  2. Heat the oil for deep frying to 350°F. or until a cube of dry bread added to the oil browns in about 30-45 seconds. Add the rolls, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the Dipping Sauce.
  3. DIPPING SAUCE: In a medium saucepan, combine the first 7 ingredients. Bring to a simmer. Combine the cornstarch and cold water (to make a slurry); add to the sauce to thicken. Simmer for 2 minutes more. Pour into a condiment bowl and serve.
