The Best Classic Egg Rolls

Whenever I go to an Asian restaurant I have to get egg rolls. I absolutely love their crispy outside and their flavorful inside filled with tons of veggies and Asian flavors. I decided to bring one of my favorite appetizers home for dinner. And boy did I not regret it! This recipe is SO easy. I had dinner made in no time, and I had lots of left overs. 

These are the best homemade egg rolls filled with ginger seasoned ground beef and fried in olive oil to crispy golden perfection. I would argue these egg rolls are even better than takeout; they quickly became a family favorite! Serve with a side of jasmine rice and a yummy soy dipping sauce, and you’ve got yourself a better-than-takeout homemade meal that’s easy and oh so scrumptious! 

Making homemade egg rolls can seem a little bit intimidating. But my friends, let me tell you. This recipe is SO easy. Even a beginner can whip these up and seem like a gourmet chef. They are so crunchy on the outside and the filling is oh so yummy! I seasoned the ground beef with lots of ginger and garlic and sautéed the fresh vegetables in olive oil, so I would say this is a healthy homemade meal that everyone in the family will love! I promise you won’t want to order takeout egg rolls ever again! They are classic and simple but loaded with Asian flavor.
