1 pound ground chicken or turkey
1 pound ground pork
1/2 pound shrimp -- shelled and cut small
2 medium potatoes -- peeled and diced small
2 medium carrots -- peeled and diced small
1 pound green beans -- trimmed and cut small
1/4 pound bean sprouts
1 small cabbage head -- shredded
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 medium onion -- diced
30 egg roll skins
msg -- to taste (optional)
1-1/2 cups vegetable oil -- for frying


Brown meat and chicken in pan (no water of grease). Remove from pan. Brown garlic and onion in butter; add shrimp and salt. When shrimp is pink, add meat and chicken. When meat is cooked, add beans. When beans are soft, add potatoes and carrots. Cook till tender, then add cabbage and bean sprout last. Cook for 5 minutes. Add salt and MSG (optional) to taste. Drain before adding to wrapper. With wrapper corner toward you, place 2 to 3 tablespoons cooked mixture in wrapper. Roll into tight roll and seal end with a water-flour paste. Fry rolls in oil till brown over medium-medium high heat. Drain on paper towels.
Amounts can be adjusted to your tastes. May substitute two 14 oz. cans of French-style beans for the fresh green beans. Potatoes and carrots may be shredded instead of diced. May substitute canned bean sprouts for fresh.
