Spring roll- using microwave-


How many of you have a microwave at home?

I use microwave when I want to minimize my cooking time and cleanups.

Today’s dish is spring roll.

I’m making veggie and meat filling in a microwave, so that all you have to do is roll it and fry it.

Sounds easy right??

I hope you enjoy it!

1:Shred bamboo shoot in matchsticks. Slice leek thinly. Chop pork into small pieces.Mix all the seasoning listed above in a large microwave safe container.

3: Roll 2 with the wrapper. Place ⅛ portion of filling on your wrapper and fold the edge, then keep rolling it towards the end. Seal it with the flour glue(1 tbsp of flour + 1 tbsp of water)

4: Shallow fry them over medium-high heat for 2mins for both side or until it becomes nice and golden on the outside. Drain the oil and transfer on your plate.

<Miwa's tips>

・You can use whatever vegetable you have on hand. For example, paprika, carrot, broccoli, onion, mushroom works well. Also you can swap pork for beef or any minced meat.

・When you microwave them, make sure to cover the plastic wrap loosely. if it’s too tight, there is a chance for making explosion.

・Depending on which vegetable you are using for filling, the liquid content varies. When you roll it, there should be almost no liquid left. If it’s too watery, dissolve ½ tbsp of potato starch and microwave it for another 1-2 mins.

・I like to eat aside with mustard and rice vinegar, but this is totally optional.

・Great option for bento box. This was actually my favorite when I was in school.

・If you don't have a microwave, stir fry on your pan totally works! Stir fry meat and vegetable first, when it's half way cooked, drizzle seasoning, and cook away until there is no liquid.
