Smoked Pulled Pork Spring Rolls

The Back Story

Smoked Pulled Pork Spring Rolls

What You Need

2 tablespoons peanut oil

1 medium carrot, shredded

1 small cabbage, shredded

1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced

1 pinch white pepper

3 teaspoons sugar

1 tablespoon light soy sauce

1 teaspoon dark soy sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 cups smoked pulled pork

2 tablespoons cornstarch

30 spring roll wrappers

½ gal vegetable oil (for frying)

What To Do

1. In a large skillet over high heat, heat peanut oil. When oil is hot, stir fry carrots, cabbage and mushrooms, about 2 minutes.

2. Add pepper, sugar, soy sauces and sesame oil. Fold in pork. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch with about 3 tablespoons of water. Whisk ingredients together and stir into filling. Remove from heat and allow filling to cool.

3. Combine remaining cornstarch with water to make a thin paste. Spread out a spring roll wrapper and place1 tablespoon of filling across the bottom corner. Brush the edges of the wrapper with the cornstarch mixture to seal the wrapper.

4. Fold the two opposite edges of the wrapper over part of the filling and roll until the wrap seals. Pinch the edges together to seal.

Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.

5. In a wok or heavy skillet,  heat oil to 350F. Place rolls in oil and fry in batches. Turn rolls occasionally to brown evenly, about 3 minutes. Rolls should be golden and crisp. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and allow rolls to drain. Serve with dipping sauce.
