Egg rolls contain a meat and vegetable filling and are wrapped in a thick flour wrapper. The wrappers are often dipped in egg before being fried, which leads to a bubbly, crispy exterior. Spring rolls are wrapped in thin flour or rice wrappers. They are thinner and lighter than egg rolls and often don’t contain meat.
Many grocery stores carry egg roll wrappers in the produce aisle or in the International foods aisle, but you can also buy them online.
Oyster sauce is a Chinese sauce made from oysters and soy sauce. It is often thickened with corn starch and dark brown in color. It adds a great umami flavor to these egg rolls! If you have an allergy, you can substitute with an equal amount of soy sauce, fish sauce, or Hoisin sauce.
Wrapping egg rolls is remarkably similar to wrapping a burrito. Add a little filling to the center of the roll, oriented in a diamond shape. Fold the bottom corner over the filling, then the two wings into the center. Then, roll the entire thing up just like a burrito, using a good amount of egg wash to seal.
