    This is another repost.
    I placed a few thick sliced pork chops in a container with sliced onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, cracked black pepper, and one bay leaf. Then covered with cool water and let them brine for about 4 hours...

    Into the smoker with a skillet of sliced onions, jalapenos, and garlic, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with a bit of kosher salt and cracked black pepper.....

    These smoked for about 4 hours with a bit of hickory.....

    I chopped 2 cups of the smoked pork, minced the smoked onion, garlic and jalapenos..
    Added some chopped water chestnuts for crunch and a bit of green onion....

    I combined all in a skillet with 1 cup of napa cabbage and heated until the mixture was heated through and the cabbage was tender crisp. Then let the mixture cool before rolling...

    I made my favorite pot sticker dipping sauce, but liked the egg rolls better without it. The sauce overpowered the nice smokey flavor of the pork, onions and jalapenos...

    They didn't taste a thing like chinese egg rolls... lol...but I like em.

    Thank you for checking out my smoked pork eggroll view. :)

    I made a couple last week for the first time- used pulled pork, carrot slices and some bagged cabbage since it was just practice time. I tried to read the "how to" on the wrapper bag but couldn't see it, so I just decided what the heck, how hard can it be and went ahead with it. I loaded them up, wrapped them and stuck the edge with my egg mix. Then I dropped them into the deep fryer.

    Looking good, but they wanted to keep rolling over on me. The color starts looking "right" and so I grab one to take it out and holy crap Batman it's full of oil! [​IMG] Not just a bit, but FULL of oil. It drains and drains and drains. And drains. And while it's draining I get the other one out and it's full too. So after lifting and turning and getting them drained as much as I can before I put them on a paper towel (that still got totally soaked!) I make a mental note that maybe I should spend a second or two on the Internet finding out how to actually roll them up so they don't leak [​IMG]. In the end, they were too loose too, but the taste was very good and I'll definitely be doing them again.

    Thanks for showing me the RIGHT way to roll them up though! [​IMG]

    Looks great to me. This is definately my kind of cooking. Go loaded for bear on a wing and a prayer and hope the end is a gastronomic delight. This looks like a great recipe to use up some extra smoked meat, thanks for the idea and also for the welcome

    Good job on your creation, Jeanie! I bet they would be great with some Sriracha on top!

    Wontons, eggroll wrappers and puff pastry don't have to be confined to a cuisine. I'm working on a neat idea with them too...

    WoW .. those look awesome!!! You really think outside of the box. I bet those were pretty tasty. Not like eggrolls that are bland or all cabbage. Now wash it down with a little Crown or a Bloody Mary and you will be all set.. LOL [​IMG]

    This post was my inspiration to use the pulled pork in my eggrolls. Awesome! er.... I mean Shweeeeeet!


    I did some mini eggrolls with the wonton wraps. Mixed the pulled pork with cream cheese, green onions and sharp cheddar. These things were like eatin popcorn. Couldn't quit till they were gone.


    Thanks Jeanie!
