Happy Columbus Day loves!
the best part about this day? NO WORK 🙂 so i decided to make a dish that my mom makes for my brother and me every time we go home. yaki mondu! her version of egg rolls. they’re super easy to make, but can be a bit time consuming.
1 lb ground beef
1 cup finely chopped carrots
1 cup finely chopped green onion
1 cup finely chopped cabbage
half a pack of sweet potato noodles finely chopped
(these are the sweet potato noodles)
1 tbsp water
okay first you need to brown your meat. i chose ground beef for the flavor, for health purposes you can substitute for ground chicken or ground turkey. after it is browned combine in medium size bowl with the vegetables and noodles.
it’ll look a bit like this:
combine the egg and water in a small bowl and whisk. now you are ready to fill the the wonton papers!
dip your fingers in the egg mixture and rub along two sides of the wonton paper and fold in half with the adjacent side. (this is how it will stick together) i cooked my yaki mondo in olive oil, but you can use vegetable oil if you’d like. they only take about 30-45 seconds to brown before having to flip it over on the other side. WATCH THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL BURN UP! trust me lol you can use soy sauce for dipping. personally, i mixed low sodium soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes for dipping. 🙂 if you want to make the same dipping sauce then only use a dash of vinegar and about a dash and a half of sesame oil (if that makes sense at all). enjoy!
