Light and fresh NZ pork spring rolls are super versatile, and what’s more; they’re an impressive entrée to show off at your next dinner party. You can also change up the flavours by swapping out and adding in different ingredients and sauces.
Vietnamese Style spring rolls
Heat oil in a large frypan and sauté 2 finely chopped spring onions and 1 tablespoon each of minced garlic and ginger, until slightly golden. Add 150g of NZ pork mince and cook through. Mix in 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce, then set the mixture aside to cool.
Take one rice paper roll at a time and soften in warm water. Remember to work fast because rice paper softens very quickly. Place 2 slices of crunchy carrot and 2 slices of fresh cucumber in the centre, as well as a small amount of finely chopped Chinese cabbage.
Add a heaped tablespoon of the pork mixture, drizzle with a little soy sauce and sprinkle with finely chopped coriander leaves. Fold in both sides and continue to roll until you form a log shape. Serve immediately, or keep in the fridge for a few hours. Makes 8 spring rolls.
Replace the pork mince with day-old Chinese BBQ pork or satay pork skewers – so simple!
