Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground pork
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 carrots grated
  • 1/2 cup chopped water chestnut
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 large (5 1/2 inch/13 cm) egg roll wrappers
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Method

In nonstick skillet, cook pork over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes; drain off fat. Add onions, garlic, carrot and water chestnuts; cook over medium heat until onions are softened, 3 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, cornstarch, 1 tbsp (15 mL) water, sesame oil and pepper; pour into pan and toss well. Let cool slightly.

Forming 1 roll at a time, place wrapper on work surface; brush with water. Spoon scant 3 tbsp (50 mL) pork mixture on bottom third, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) borders on bottom and sides. Pull bottom edge over filling and roll up; pinch ends to seal.

Place, seam side down, on rimmed baking sheet; brush with oil. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.
