  • Heavy bottom pot
  • Tongs
  • Deep fry thermometer


  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • 1 (10 oz) bag coleslaw mix
  • 4 oz pastrami cut into strips
  • 1 medium onion cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • canola oil or vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon flour


To make filling:

  • Heat a large skillet with oil and saute onions and pastrami until softened but not brown.
  • Add coleslaw mix and stir to mix cook for a minute or two until cabbage starts to wilt. Turn off heat.
  • Season with soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. Mix well.
  • In a small bowl create a 'paste' of 1 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon water mixed together. This will be the "glue" that holds your egg roll closed. Set aside.

To fill egg rolls:

  • Take an egg roll wrapper and place it in front of you in a diamond shape. Take a heaping spoonful of filling and spread it in a line horizontally across the bottom half of the egg roll wrapper.
  • Fold up bottom of wrapper to cover filling. Then fold in the two sides. Smear some of the "paste" along the open seams. Finally, roll the egg roll until completely rolled up. Set aside until all egg rolls are rolled.

To fry egg rolls:

  • Heat 3-4 inches of oil in a heavy bottom pot to 375ºF.
  • Carefully lower egg rolls into hot oil frying them in batches of about four at a time. Do not overcrowd the pot. Cook egg rolls for about 7-8 minutes turning halfway until all sides are golden brown and crispy.
  • Drain on wire rack and allow to cool slightly.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.


Go Crazy With Dipping Sauces

A kosher egg roll recipe would not be complete without some dipping sauces. This recipe has great flavor on its own but a great dipping sauce can take it to the next level. Try dipping them in:
  • Soy sauce
  • Sriracha
  • Duck sauce
  • Hot mustard
  • Thai chili sauce (mild or hot)
  • Barbeque sauce
  • Honey
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Russian Dressing
