Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 lb. ground pork
1/4 lb. shrimp, chopped (get the 21-25/lb since they have more flavor!)
1/2 can straw mushrooms, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded into fine julienne
1/4 lb bean sprouts
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1-2 tsp fish sauce
2 Tbsp grapeseed oil for stir frying mixture
1 tsp sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
12-15 rice papers
oil for deep frying (peanut,canola, or grapeseed)
lettuce leaves and mint for garnish and serving


Over med-high heat, stirfry onion, shrimp and pork.

Let sit for a bit and then turn up the heat and add sprouts, carrots and mushrooms until just barely cooked through.

Season with pepper, fish sauce and sugar.

Let rest to cool so that you can handle.

Soak one rice paper with warm water until soft and pliable. Take the filling and fold into paper, being careful to tuck in both sides and both ends.

Deep fry the rolls in oil (heated to 375F).

Let them fry until golden brown.

Serve wrapped in lettuce leaf with spring of mint, and dipped in sauce -- peanut sauce or cucumber sauce.
