Pork Egg Rolls with Orange Sauce
Pork Egg Rolls with Orange Sauce
Pork Egg Rolls with Orange Sauce are fast, easy, portable and best of all delicious. Egg rolls are a great way to use up leftovers. Just about anything can be enclosed in a egg roll wrapper. Ground pork is used in this recipe but ground turkey will work also. When we make egg rolls here at Turnips 2 Tangerines, coleslaw blend is our cabbage of choice. So much easier than shredding a head of cabbage and your knuckles on a box grater.
Baked not Fried
Traditional egg rolls are always deep fried but now that more and more people have become health conscious, egg rolls are now often baked and not fried. When baking egg rolls, line them up single file in a baking dish. Spray them well with a non-stick cooking spray. Bake until crispy and light golden brown. The inside should be hot as well.
Just remember that baked egg rolls will have a slightly different appearance than deep fried but baked are delicious all the same. Pork Egg Rolls are dipped into a delicious slightly spicy, sweet orange sauce. Made with sweet orange marmalade, Malibu coconut rum, bottled sweet sour sauce and hot chili peppers. Make an alcohol free sauce and replace the Malibu rum with orange juice, coconut milk or water.
