Yuck!! Way to much sour cream flavor, to salty and lacking any hint of crab flavor.
The advice about the air bubbles was much needed. My family complained because they were too hot... I recommended they wait til the rangoons had cooled slightly (instead of standing next to the pan and grabbing them hot right out of the oil) LOL. I will never buy boxed again. These are so easy to make and delicious!!
I think I might have added too much crab but this was very fishy to me. I bought Crab Claws in the seafood dept but it was too much. Also, I sort of felt it was too sour creamy which I even cut the sour cream in half. If I make again, which I probably will, I will not use sour cream and will only add a bit of crab (like in the in the Chinese restaurant).
These are great! I have made these a few times and have to cut the recipe in half so we won't eat too many! We use canned fancy crabmeat and less ginger (maybe 1/8 tsp). These are great dipped in Frank's Red Hot sweet chile sauce.
My daughters and I had a "deep fry night" and seeing that we all love crab rangoon, we decided to try making our own. These turned out pretty good, but not like the ones you get in a chinese restaurant. So many of them popped open and lost filling, the ones that didn't pop seemed almost empty after they fried, like the filling just melted away. Also, next time we definately would use less ginger, because the ginger took over the flavor. I think they must use egg roll wrappers or something at restaurants, because they are so much bigger and fit much more filling.
This dish is my favorite and this is better than any I have had.
I went to a chinese restaurant the other week and ordered these and they were just horrible!! Flavorless, bland and just bad. I had to make them myself. I made these for the first time for my husbands birthday who is chinese, and we both absolutely loved them!! He couldn't stop eating them! The flavor is very good and exactly what I was looking for. Spot on!! They are so effortless and so so easy to make. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.
Very yummy! I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ginger powder. I think next time I will use a generous half tsp instead of a full tsp. of the powder. These had a lot more flavor than the last recipe I tried. This is a keeper.
The filling was pretty good, although I wish the instructions would have been a little easier to follow. I do not own a Fry Daddy so I was doing this on the stovetop, and I did not know how long to cook or if I was even doing it right. They came out a little burnt, but that was probably my own fault! I will try this again since I thought the filling was a success. Thank you!
Nice basic recipe that is easy to tweak to your own taste preferences. I actually fourthed the recipe, since I just wanted a few appetizers for me & my hubby. Otherwise, I would've had way too much filling for 2 of us. Only changes I made were 1.) I didn't even use crab meat! I find that most of the time you can't taste the crab meat anyways when you order take-out. And 2.) I added about double the amount of sugar, cuz we personally like them sweet like they serve at our local place. Great recipe! Looking forward to using it again :)
