take two tuesday.. left over korean beef/kimchi eggrolls

this post was supposed to show up yesterday.. sorry :(
 

i made korean short rib tacos w/ homemade kimchi the other day and wow.. double wow.. is all i can say.. i know i know i am women of many words.. but it's all i can think of when describing how good it was.. we had a little left over {actually we wouldn't have but i hid it knowing i wanted to make to egg rolls with it} and pete had been working so hard on projects i decided to whip up these quick and easy appetizers.. and boy were they good too!!


korean beef/kimchi egg rolls

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes
servings: 12 appetizers

ingredients:

2 cups left over korean short ribs {recipe found here}
1 cup kimchi {chopped} {recipe found here}
1/2 cup water
oil for frying

spicy soy sauce for dipping {recipe found here}


heat your left over beef in a small non stick skillet over medium heat then add kimchi and cook for about 3-5 minutes.. remove from heat and allow to slightly cool.. pre heat oven to 400 degrees (f).. then have a little bowl of water ready and get out your egg roll wrappers once the above mixture has cooled.. take your wrapper have a corner facing you.. should look like a diamond.. put about 1 tblsp. of the korean beef and kimchi  mixture across the center of the egg roll wrapper.. {corner to corner} {if you check out this website here there are step by step photos...} now fold the bottom up and over the filling.. fold in the two side corners, making it like an envelope.. dab your finger in the bowl of water and run along the exposed corner then roll everything up like a burrito.. place seem side down on a baking sheet.. once they are all made heat 2 tbls. of oil in an iron skillet.. (your not deep frying your pan frying..) once the oil is hot fry them for about 2 minutes each side they should be lightly browned on all sides. i then placed them on a lined baking sheet and placed them in oven for about 4-5 minutes to get them extra crispy.. remove from oven to a serving platter.. add your dipping sauce and serve.. it's so good.. you will compliments.. guaranteed


i made them for pete and then wanted them back for me.. and only me.. all mine.. but i shared them.. even though i didn't want to.. i was a nice wife :) after all he did put a pretty big dent in his "honey do" list..


enjoy and get cook'n!!

  1. Beautiful egg rolls and delicious taste. All the ingredients look like a perfect combination. I especially like the Korean kimchi that has delicate flavor. I had featured u in the article of Top 7 Beef Based Recipes for Mother’s Day on AllFreshRecipes. Expect more newly EATS!
