  • 24 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • ½ pound Ground Pork
  • 14 ounces Coleslaw Mix
  • 2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • Cooking Oil

Sweet & Sour Sauce

  • ¾ cup Ketchup
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cup White Vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon Corn Starch
  • 1 cup Water


Air Fryer Egg Rolls

  • Brown ground pork in a large pan until no longer pink. Drain grease. Add shredded coleslaw mix, soy sauce and black pepper, and cook until cabbage is wilted, stirring often.
  • If the coleslaw is not already finely chopped, add the ground pork and coleslaw mixture to a food processor and quickly blend until finely chopped.
  • Begin laying out egg roll wrappers and placing about ¼ cup of pork mixture on each wrapper. Roll wrappers and use a small amount of water on your finger to seal the edges of the wrappers closed.
    Tip: Do not place uncooked wrapped egg rolls on top of each other. They tend to stick from moisture and then the wrappers will rip open as you pick them up.
  • Spray the bottom of your air fryer basket with canola oil or vegetable oil and place the egg rolls in a single layer. Spray or brush the egg rolls with oil as well. Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 6 minutes then spray or brush egg rolls with more cooking oil. Cook for an additional 4-6 minutes until they are crispy and golden brown.

Pan-Fried Method

  • Follow above steps 1-3.
  • Heat a large pan over medium-high heat with about 2" of oil. Once hot, add egg rolls and cook on all sides, about 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Make sure it is hot enough prior to cooking otherwise they will become soggy in lukewarm oil.

Sweet & Sour Sauce

  • In a small saucepan, add vinegar, white sugar, and ketchup. Mix together water and corn starch until dissolved and add to the pan. Whisk ingredients over medium-high heat until sauce thickens.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool. Serve as a dipping sauce for egg rolls.
