Qdm's Whatever Ya' Got Eggrolls

Print PrintShare with Friends

This is a tough recipe to actually write down! If there is leftover pork, chicken, lamb, beef, anything... it can be put in as a filling. The only things you really need are soy sauce, eggroll wrappers and some type of oil for deep-fat frying... What follows is what I used on 2-20-2005 for the ones pictured in the recipe photos.
