How to make Spring Rolls 春捲 for Taiwanese, and Chinese, New Year

Here’s some great Spring Rolls my mother made. These are beef and onion ones but you can alter the recipe to include any sorts of other fillings including the likes of pork, chicken, bamboo and bean sprouts – whatever you like. Chinese (Taiwanese) New Year is almost here and these would be a great addition to your dinner table spread!

Please watch the video and you will be able to see the cooking method and technique for making beautiful, golden crispy spring rolls at home – using the best ingredients from your local shops.

In my mother’s recipe the following ingredients were used:

  • 500g beef mince,
  • sliced spring onions,
  • spring roll pastry,
  • salt, pepper,
  • egg for ‘glue’
  • sesame oil, rice wine, a little sugar
  • + dipping sauce made from ketchup, lemon & sugar
