Hmong Egg Rolls

By: Kay Lalor January 17, 2022
One of the dishes that I had fond memories of making were egg rolls. Cooking egg rolls in my family's household was operated as a team. One would be peeling the wraps, the other would be boiling the noodles, the other would be cutting the veggies, the other would be mixing the filling, and everyone was wrapping. And many times this was all happening simultaneously because just cooking egg rolls by yourself takes a long time. So if you're attempting to cook egg rolls by yourself, just allow enough time. Trust me.

The Filling

  1. Place ground pork in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add all of the fresh vegetable ingredients (cilantro, green onion, garlic, onion, carrots) into the large mixing bowl. Add one whole egg, salt, black pepper, oyster sauce, and the drained Vermicelli Bean Thread Noodles. Mix thoroughly with hands.

The Rolling

  1. Place a spoonful of the egg roll filling and place it 2 inches above the bottom corner of the wrap. Shape the egg roll filling in a horizontal row. Pull the bottom corner of the wrap up over the filling to start rolling, at midpoint pull the side corners of the wrap towards the center and continue to roll until near the top.
  2. Smear the egg yolk on the top corner of the wrapper and continue to roll to seal.
  3. Repeat to make 40-50 rolls.

The Frying

  1. Pour vegetable oil in a deep-frying pan on medium to high heat on the stovetop. Allow at least 1 to 2 inches of oil depth in the deep-frying pan. Also as a safety precaution, allow enough room for the top of the frying pan to rise for the difference in liquid volume when cooking the egg rolls.
  2. Once the oil is hot. Place 4-6 egg rolls in the deep-frying pan. (Tip: Don’t place too many egg rolls in a frying pan, this will change the temperature of the oil and may take longer to cook, and also soften the exterior texture of the egg roll wrap.)
  3. Allow for the egg rolls to float then flip with using a tong. (Tip: Flipping the egg rolls too often and too soon will deteriorate the egg roll wrap).
  4. When the egg rolls are a golden-brown color, use the tong to grab the egg rolls and place on a cooling rack.
  5. Repeat until all of the egg rolls are cooked.
  6. Place cooled egg rolls on a serving platter and
  7. Serve with hot sauce.
