Peking Egg Rolls (Copycat Recipe)

This is a delicious copycat recipe for Peking egg rolls that my family and I love from our favorite Chinese restaurant called Peking in Muscatine, Iowa. They're filled with finely chopped seasoned ground pork and cabbage, wrapped, and fried until golden and crispy.

  • 24 Egg Roll Wrappers
  • ½ lb Ground Pork
  • 20 oz Shredded Cabbage
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • Canola or Vegetable Oil for Frying

Sweet & Sour Sauce

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


Egg Rolls

  • Brown ground pork in a large pan until no longer pink. Drain grease. Add shredded cabbage, season with salt and pepper, and cook until wilted, stirring often.
  • Add pork and cabbage mixture to a food processor and 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 lift them.
  • 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.

Air Fryer Method

  • 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 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until they are crispy, flipping halfway.

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.
