RECIPE BACKSTORY
I'm posting this as printed in last weeks Ft. Worth Star Telegram. However, I made some changes to it myself when I prepared them yesterday. I had roasted a 3 lb pork loin on Saturday, (which was fabulous!)so I used about 1 lb chopped pork instead of the roast beef. I did not know why they did NOT call this an egg roll recipe until after they got out of the oven. The wrapper does not get real crisp like an egg roll...in fact it retains alot of the pasta like consistency (downright soggy on the microwave reheat). Since I still have some egg roll wrappers left I am going to try spraying with nonstick cooking spray instead to see if they get crispier that way. If not, the filling would work really well as steamed or pan fried dumplings in the smaller wonton wrappers. "Super Suppers Cookbook," by Judie Byrd
