- In a large skillet, cook the ground pork over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Drain any excess fat.

- Lay an egg roll wrapper on a flat surface with one corner pointing towards you. Place 2-3 tablespoons of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper.
- Roll the wrapper tightly, tucking in the sides as you go. Brush the edges of the wrapper with beaten egg to seal.
- Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
- Heat oil in a deep skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the egg rolls and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy.
- Remove the egg rolls from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
- Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
- Can I use a different type of meat?

Yes, you can assemble the egg rolls up to a day ahead and store them in the refrigerator until ready to fry.
- Can I bake these egg rolls instead of frying them?
Yes, you can bake the egg rolls at 375°F for 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until golden brown and crispy.
- What dipping sauce do you recommend?
Sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, or plum sauce are great options.
- Can I freeze these egg rolls?
Yes, you can freeze the uncooked egg rolls for up to 2 months. When ready to cook, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight and fry as directed.
- How do I prevent the egg rolls from getting soggy?
Make sure to drain any excess moisture from the filling and don’t overfill the egg rolls. Also, make sure the oil is hot enough before frying.
If you want to make the best egg roll wraps at home, here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. Don’t overfill the egg rolls. If you overfill the egg rolls, they will be difficult to roll and will not cook evenly.
2. Drain excess water from the filling. Too much moisture in the filling can make the egg rolls soggy.
3. Use a deep skillet or wok. This will allow you to fry the egg rolls evenly and prevent them from sticking together.
