Ground beef-stuffed, crispy egg rolls, with a spicy mustard dipping sauce.

Ingredients

  • Filling2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 1 head bok choy, sliced thinly (or small head cabbage)
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 med carrot, sliced with vegetable peeler
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped finely
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 pinch kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch pepper, or to taste
  • Egg Roll Cooking oil for frying
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Flour for dusting
  • Spicy Mustard Sauce1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbs horseradish

Directions

  • Preheat skillet. Drizzle with olive oil. Brown ground beef. Add onions, bok choy, garlic, and carrots. Cook uncovered until vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add cilantro, ginger, salt, and pepper to taste. Cook until cilantro is wilted, this will take just a few minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Combine ingredients for spicy mustard, set aside.
  • Preheat oil for frying, use either a deep fryer or a skillet with enough oil to submerge egg rolls to 350°F.
  • Flour your work surface. Dip egg roll wrapper in beaten egg and then flour each side; shake off the excess flour.
  • Put about 2 heaping Tbs of the filling in the wrapper and fold like a burrito. Place the egg roll wrapper so that it is in a diamond shape facing you and start to roll, tucking in the edges. You may need to adjust the amount of filling.
  • Seal the edges closed with the beaten egg. You will have more than enough filling for the wrappers.
  • Submerge each egg roll in the hot oil. Turn once and cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with spicy mustard.
