We love Asian egg rolls, but they can be challenging to make. Simplify everything with this deconstructed egg roll made on the stovetop and served in a bowl. —Courtney Stultz, Weir, Kansas

    I think the recipe is pretty good overall but unhappy with the noodles. Probably the brand because we usually like rice noodles.

    We really like egg rolls and Chinese stir fry so this was a great combo of the two. I used bagged cabbage and also we served over basmati rice instead of the noodles. I don't like the consistency of rice noodles and we love rice. I'll definitely make this again.

    Easy recipe. While I loved the rice noodles, family was not thrilled with them. I loved the flavors

    Excellent, easy recipe. My first time to use rice noodles & they were delicious. Thank you for yet another recipe that is definitely a keeper. The seasonings were sooo perfect.

    I liked the overall recipe. I used bagged precut coleslaw mix and the cabbage seamed to really break down. Next time I would buy a head of cabbage and slice it. I also used chicken instead of pork. I would also make additional sauce the next time I make it.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I read the comments prior to making and I added more garlic and seasoning (did not add extra salt or soy sauce) and I thought it was quite delicious! My meat and potatoes boyfriend really liked it too! I think this recipe is a keeper and I look forward to making it again and trying different veggie combinations with it.

    This was a great recipe. I think next time I make it I will definitely add more meat, spices, and soy sauce. This recipe is a keeper!

    This recipe is fantastic! I opted for the "meatless" version and used scrambled eggs. I also bumped up the spices a notch...our preference. Hubby and I thought it was great and I can't wait to make it again!

    This was excellent, and it was even better as leftovers two days later. The cabbage didn't get wilty at all. I used ground turkey because that was what I had, and next time I'll use fewer noodles. It was so flavorful my cat walked around the table sniffing for tidbits, and she's usually never interested in human food.
