Another one of our families "favorite" egg rolls. We serve them as a main dish meal, not as an appetizer.

- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 quart vegetable oil or 1 quart peanut oil (for frying)

- Cook pork until no longer pink; drain off fat and set aside on paper towels.
- In a deep fryer or large skillet, add oil.
- Heat oil to 375 degrees, or use medium-high heat with the skillet.
- While oil is heating, in a small bowl, combine flour and water until they form a paste.
- In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, onion, green peppers and reserved pork; mix well.
- On a plate, lay out one egg roll skin with a corner pointed towards you.
- Place about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the vegetable mixture on an egg roll paper, and fold corner up over the mixture.
- Fold left and right corners toward the center, and continue to roll.
- Brush abit of the flour paste around the final corner to help seal the egg roll.

- Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, (turning occasionally) until golden brown.
- Remove from oil, and drain on paper towels.
