1 lb. chinese cabbage (Napa) 2 stalks celery 1/2 lb. cooked shrimp 1/2 lb. cooked pork or chicken livers 10 water chestnuts 1/3 cup bamboo shoots 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. sugar Liberal dash pepper 1/2 tsp. light soy sauce 1/4 tsp. sesame oil 1 beaten egg 10 egg roll skins 3 cups oil
PREPARATION: Boil cabbage and celery until very tender. Drain and squeezeout excess water. Shred very fine and set aside to drain further. Parboil shrimp and fry or bake pork. Mince both. Shredwater chestnuts and bamboo shoots. Mix all ingredients but egg together. Beat egg. Wrap filling in egg roll skins and seal with egg. COOKING: Heat oil in wok or deep fat fryer to 375 degrees and drop in eggrolls. When skin turns light golden brown, remove from oil and drain. (Atthis point restaurants refrigerate them and finish the cooking process asneeded.) When cool, drop again into hot oil and fry until golden brown. Makes 10. The two-stage deep frying method is actually a professional Chinese chefs'secret. It assures that the inside will be moist and not overcooked (asanything overcooked becomes dry) and the outside will be crisp. This recipe came from The Easy Way To Chinese Cooking by Beverly Lee. Wehave used it many times and have had a lot of success and our friends likeit too.
