Directions:
Saute shrimp in a little oil with garlic until barely done; remove from pan. Stir fry shitake mushroom and bamboo shoots. Add cabbage to pan and cook until almost done. Sprinkle with chicken granules and soy sauce to taste. Add cha siew and green onions. Remove from heat and stir in shrimp. If there is a lot of liquid in the filling, drain well before rolling the eggrolls. Roll into wrappers and seal with a little beaten egg. Make them about one inch in diameter and about 3 to 4 inches long. Fry in hot oil until crisp and brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with hot Chinese mustard or sweet chili sauce for dipping.

These reheat well in a 350 oven on a rack in a jelly roll pan.

Personal Notes:
These eggrolls can be filled with whatever you like best. This is my favorite combination, but you can add bean sprouts, celery, pork, chicken, water chestnuts, sesame oil, etc.

My favorite eggroll wrappers are Spring Home TYJ Spring Roll Pastry. The 1 lb. 3 oz. package has about 40 sheets.

We have enjoyed making them as a large group, because they are a lot of work for only one or two people. It is a fun project for interaction among guests and family.
