Recipe for egg rolls (allegedly New York-style)

raytamsgv | Dec 4, 200611:29 PM     19

I've compiled a recipe for egg rolls. From what I've gathered on other boards, these are New York-style egg rolls, though I've never heard that term used by anyone I knew in the Chinese restaurant business in Los Angeles. It's from memory, so it's a bit sketchy at points. The ingredients are approximate, because we used to make hundreds at a time, and it's a challenge to convert to home quantities. Anyhow, properly done, these will be about two inches in diameter, six inches long, and have a bumpy, crispy skin. These are NOT the ones you will find in most "authentic" Cantonese restaurants. If these aren't New York style egg rolls, I apologize in advance. Happy cooking!
