23 rolls

35 mins

Step 1

First, saute mushrooms with 1 tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt in the skillet over medium heat, stirring few times for 3-5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Step 2

In a big mixing bowl combine cool saute mushrooms, cooked bean noodles, ground pork, garlic, onion, sugar, fish sauce, and carrots. Using a hand or a stand mixer, knead all of the ingredients together until everything is combined.

Step 3

Place spring roll wrapper on the table (creating diamond shape), add 2 full small ice cream scoops of the filling on the lower part of the wrapper.

Step 4

Roll the bottom of the wrapper over the filling to create a tight log.

Step 5

Then connect the sides to make it look like an envelope.

Step 6

Using water and a finger wet the top of the wrapper, and continue rolling until the top corner connects with the rest of the roll, the water helps to seal the wrapper. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers.

Step 7

Pour oil into the skillet (I am using cast iron skillet) about 1 - 2 inch of oil, then preheat to 375F. Carefully add rolls and fry until golden color and the inside temperature reaches 165F. Serve with lettuce, cilantro and dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Step 8

Combine all ingredients in a small mason jar, close and shake until sugar dissolves. Serve with finely chopped jalapeno or green onion.
