    Stir in coleslaw mix. Add soy sauce by pouring around top of mixture about 2 times. Taste and check saltiness; you can always add more. Cook until thoroughly heated.

    While cabbage mixture is cooking, place egg roll skins on large work surface. Spoon 1 serving spoon-size of beef mixture on center of each skin. For each egg roll, bring up bottom corner; fold in side corners and roll up. Bring down top corner; wet with small amount of water to stick.

    In small skillet, heat oil. When oil is hot, fry egg rolls until crispy. Shake off excess oil.

Expert Tips

  • You can use chicken in this recipe instead of the beef.
  • The sweet and sour sauce freezes well and can be used as a dipping sauce for chicken or a topping for an Asian-style hamburger.
  • If you can only make a couple of egg rolls at a time, keep the extra skins in the package; they will dry out quickly.
