Ingredients

Pork Egg Rolls

  • 1-2 tsp oil
  • cup onion (white or green) diced
  • cup celery diced
  • 16 oz ground pork (or chicken)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage (coleslaw mix)
  • Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp sriracha (optional)
  • 16-20 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten (for sealing)

Sesame Soy Mayo Dipping Sauce

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Instructions

Pork Filling

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, saute onions and celery in oil for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add ground pork, letting larger chunks brown then crumbling meat as it cooks.
  • Once cooked through, add garlic and ginger, cooking for 30 seconds.
  • Add shredded carrots and cabbage, then cover pan with a lid and cook until wilted, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and sriracha, stirring to integrate.
  • Remove pan from heat and allow pork filling mixture to cool before assembling egg rolls.

Air Fryer Egg Rolls

  • Preheat air fryer to 380°F (195°C).
  • Place one egg roll wrapper in a diamond shape on a clean, flat surface. (Keep unused wrappers covered with a damp towel to prevent them drying out.)
  • Spoon about 3 Tbsp pork filling onto egg roll wrapper, near the top corner.
  • Fold top corner over the mixture, pressing the sides of the fold down to make the seal stronger.
  • Fold in both side corners, keeping the folds tight.
  • Then, begin to roll down towards the bottom corner, forming a cigar shape and keeping the mixture tightly contained.
  • Before completing the roll, brush remainder of wrapper with beaten egg to seal. (Like sealing an envelope flap.) Brush sealed outer edge with additional egg wash.
  • Transfer sealed egg roll to a plate and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
  • Repeat to assemble all pork egg rolls. (Yields ~16.)
  • Spray basket of preheated air fryer with cooking spray. Place 6-8 egg rolls into basket. (Air fryer egg rolls are best cooked in batches, with space between them.)
  • Spray tops of rolls with cooking spray (or brush with oil) to help them crisp up and brown.
  • Cook 10-12 minutes (no need to flip), until brown and crispy.
  • Serve warm with sesame soy mayo or your favorite dipping sauce!

Storage & Reheating

  • Air fryer egg rolls are best enjoyed fresh. If needed, store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days.
  • Reheat in air fryer (or oven/toaster oven) at 350°F(180°) for 3-5 minutes, until warmed through.
