Pork Egg Rolls

I had a craving for some egg rolls. I bought some wrappers some time ago and found them in the freezer the other day so figured it was a sign to make these! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to put in them, so I thought of all the best flavors I’d had in egg rolls and what sounded good to my palate and came up with these. Simple, tasty, and only a few ingredients; just how I like to cook! pork egg roll-3

While the veal is more delicate to eat, I think the amount of flavors in this dish combined with the low temp slow cooking of it leads way to making this dish just fine for us everyday folk. osso buco-1
