Chinese Egg Rolls Preparation
Mix seasoning ingredients together. Cut the pork into thin strips, add the seasonings and marinate the pork for 10-15 minutes.
While the pork is marinating, prepare the vegetables, and the gravy mixture.
Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat. Add the oil for stir-frying. When the oil is ready, add the celery and onion and stir-fry.
Taste and add salt and sugar, if desired. Remove from the wok. Add the pork to the wok and cook until well done (place cover on wok). Remove. Clean the wok and stir-fry the bean sprouts. Check the seasoning while stir-frying the bean sprouts and add salt and/or sugar as desired. Stir-fry the cabbage, covering and cooking for a minute or two, again adding salt and/or sugar if desired. Combine all the ingredients in the wok. If necessary, drain some of the juice from the vegetables out.
Wrapping: Mix the cornstarch and water, slowly adding the water to the cornstarch until you have a "glue" which will be used to seal the wrappers.
To wrap, lay the egg roll wrapper out with the short side directly in front of you. This will be the dry side. The two long sides will be called sides 1 and 3, and the other short side directly across from you will be called side 2. Place approximately 1-2 tablespoons of filling in the middle of the wrapper, spreading it out but not getting too close to the edges. Using your fingertip, spread a bit of the cornstarch/water glue along edges 1, 2, and 3. Fold over the dry side, then take side 2 and fold it over, making sure the two sides overlap. Press down firmly on sides 1 and 3, making sure they are well sealed.
Deep-frying: When oil is ready, slide each egg roll carefully into the wok, one at a time. Deep-fry until they are golden brown, then drain on deep-fry rack or paper towels. Keep on a try lined with fresh paper towels until needed. The egg rolls should not be stacked. If possible, do not reheat in the oven, as this can dry the eggrolls out, but if necessary, reheat them on low heat for 10 minutes on each side.
