A couple weeks ago my wife and I went to an Asian-American fusion restaurant where they serve bar-b-q-shi and I was inspired.
I thought pulled pork wontons would be yummy. I came up with a plan. Get some wonton wrappers, make some vinegar based slaw and thaw out some left over BBQ I had in the freezer and make some wontons. I couldn't find wonton wrappers so I used eggroll wrappers and made BBQ egg-rolls.
Here's what I did.
- 1 pack of egg-roll wrappers
- 1lb of pulled pork
- 1 bag of shredded cabbage for slaw
- Hot oil for cooking
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1tsp cayenne
- 1tsp crushed red pepper
- 1tbls soy sauce
- 1tbls Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbls favorite rub
I set the pork, slaw and wrappers all on the counter.
I took a wrapper and made a line of slaw in it.
I then added some pork on top of the slaw. I tried to make sure I had both bark and regular meat in each roll.
After I had the pork and slaw I rolled up the wrapper and sealed it with a little water wiped on the flap.
I then deep fried the egg-rolls in a wok with oil.
These egg-rolls are really good. The family said this is a keeper recipe. Try them out and let me know what you think.
