Keto Egg Rolls

    • Lay the Soy Paper down vertically and place about 1 tbsp of the ground pork mix in the bottom center of the Soy Paper as shown. Grab the left side and fold over towards the middle and repeat with the right side. Now roll from the bottom to the top to form the rolls. Use some water to hold the conjoining ends together. Make sure the wrap is secured tightly so it doesn't fall apart during the cooking process (you may also consider using toothpicks to hold it in place).

    • In a medium frying pan, add enough oil to cover 1/2 of the eggs rolls. Place on medium-low heat and bring to temperature (about 3-5 minutes). Important - Soy Paper has a much lower burning point then egg rolls, so make sure you cook this on low heat. Carefully place the rolls and cook for 1.5-2 minutes. If the paper is browning too fast, remove and reduce heat. Flip and repeat on the other side for 1.5-2 minutes.

    1. These look great. Can they be steamed or is it traditionally crunchy? I’m thinking of making something along the lines of gyoza. Thanks for all your guys recipes!

      • LowCarbingAsian

        Hi Tony! Vietnamese Eggs Rolls are traditional crunchy, but given we are working with soy paper, they only get crunchy to an extent. If you are looking for steamed type dumplings, you could take a look at our Cream Cheese Dumpling recipe (http://www.lowcarbingasian.com/keto-cream-cheese-skinless-dumplings). Skip the cream cheese and steam the dumpling using the Napa wrap (the base is essentially Gyoza). Also, we have a Gyoza recipe releasing next week using soy paper (these are pan fried though as soy paper doesn’t like to be steamed). You are very welcome for all the recipes and we hope you come back soon!

      Do you think this can be fried in an air fryer?

      • LowCarbingAsian

        Hi My! We don’t have an air fryer so can’t be 100% sure, but we think it should work! If you do try, please let us know how they turn out!

    4. I have been eyeing this recipe for a while and I finally pulled the trigger tonight. I must say, it was quite exceptional!!! I used a food processor to expedite the chopping. I followed the recipe to the letter except for adding a bit of minced garlic to the meat mixture. I also made the dipping sauce and added a few dashes of coconut aminos. The husband and I absolutely loved this dish. I paired the egg rolls with a light Asian cucumber salad. Pure perfection! Thank you!!
