December 31: Egg Rolls

New Year's Eve! In celebrating this day, we often have Chinese food so I am sharing my favorite egg roll recipe.

2 lbs ground pork
3 1/2 c diced carrots
4 c shredded cabbage
3 c diced mushrooms
3 c diced celery
1 medium diced onion
4 1/2 c bean sprouts
60 lumpia wrappers
2 or more TB soy sauce

Cook in order of ingredients. Brown pork. Drain fat from pork before adding vegetables. Add carrots, cook 3 minutes. Add celery and onions, cook 3 more minutes. Add cabbage and mushrooms, cook 3 more minutes. Add bean sprouts and soy sauce. Cook 1 minute. Spoon 1 TB mixture into each wrapper (follow directions on package of lumpia to fold.) Deep-fry 4 to 6 minutes til golden brown and heated all the way through. 

Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
