  • 1 lb ground pork or chicken
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce for dipping


  1. In a large skillet, heat a small amount of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the ground pork or chicken and cook until browned, breaking it apart with a spoon.
  2. Add the minced garlic and ginger to the skillet and cook for an additional minute until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and chopped green onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
  4. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil to the skillet. Stir well to combine and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly.
  5. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a clean, flat surface with one corner pointing towards you (like a diamond shape). Place about 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture in the center of the wrapper.
  6. Fold the bottom corner over the filling, then fold in the sides, and roll up tightly, sealing the top corner with a dab of water. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  7. In a deep skillet or pot, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Fry the egg rolls in batches, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per batch. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  9. Serve the egg rolls hot with sweet and sour sauce or soy sauce for dipping. Enjoy your homemade egg rolls!

Note: For a healthier alternative, you can bake the egg rolls at 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through, until they are golden brown and crispy.
