4.Remove veggies from the wok. Add 1 tbsp oil and meat to the wok and cook until well done. Then add the veggies back in and mix it well with the meat. Make sure that there is no gravy in the mixture, if there is, it needs to be drained out.
5. Set the filling aside to cool for wrapping.
6. Wrapping: Mix 4 tbsp cornstarch and 1 tbsp water slowly till you get a glue texture, this will be used as glue for the wrappers.
7. To wrap, Spread out the egg roll wrapper, put filling in the middle of the wrapper, wrap it like you will wrap a burrito, then seal it with the cornstarch water solution.
8. Deep-frying: When oil is ready, gently put each egg roll into a wok/deep fryer one at a time. Deep-fry the egg rolls until they are golden brown, then drain the excess oil on a rack or paper towels. Don't stack egg rolls. If it is needed, egg rolls can be reheated in an oven on low heat for 10 minutes on each side.
