Recipe by Bonnie Traynor
I love this recipe because it is so easy to make and it has converted a bunch of my friends into cabbage lovers!! They can't wait to have these when I make them! Enjoy!

These were great, and very easy. I used shrimp and added a little onion and ginger. You were correct about the need for almost "over seasoning". I thought I had ruined the dish but cooked them anyway and they were great. Thanks!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 package shredded cabbage (angel hair if you can find it)
- 1 package shredded carrot
- salt and pepper
- garlic powder
- 1 -2 package egg roll wrap
- 1 egg
- canola oil (for frying)
- Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
Directions See How It's Made
- Fry the ground beef with the salt and pepper and garlic powder until the meat is completely browned.
- Make sure to add a lot of the salt and pepper and garlic powder.
- This needs to have a strong flavor because you'll be frying it with other ingredients.
- Don't put so much in that you can't eat it, but you want to really taste it.
- Once you are done getting the flavor right, get a LARGE bowl and put the shredded cabbage and carrots in it and then add the ground beef on top.
- Mix together completely and let sit for about 15 minutes.
- I do that so the mixture will soften and I can roll them more easily.
- Check the mixture after it sits to make sure the flavor is still there and really stands out.
- If not, add more of the salt and pepper and garlic powder.
- It's really up to your taste buds, but this is what I've done and I get RAVE reviews.
- Heat up your oil for frying in a deep fryer.
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions for how much oil to add, but always make sure you don't fill it to the top so you don't get hurt.
- I usually only fill about half of the fryer.
- Crack an egg into a small bowl to make a wash for sealing the egg roll wraps.
- Take a wrap and put about 1-2 teaspoons of the meat mixture onto the wrap.
- Wrap the roll as shown on the package, remembering to seal with the egg wash.
- I try to wrap my rolls tightly, but I don't always do that so well.
- Once you are done wrapping, place the egg rolls carefully into the oil about 2-3 at a time.
- Cook them until they are blond in color.
- Don't let them get too dark.
- Take them out and let drain on paper towels.
- You're done! I serve mine with Grey Poupon for dipping. yummy!
- Others might enjoy soy sauce! These also freeze very well, that is of course, if you have any left! I make a bunch for myself and have them for lunch.
- Just pop them in the microwave for about 1 minute, and you're done.
