    I did like this recipe, and enjoyed the finished product, but I didn't rate it 5 stars. I did try to dip this in Asian style sauces, but it did NOT taste like a regular eggroll & the flavors were a little weird together. It basically tasted like an empanada. So, I started dipping it in hot sauce - and THAT I really liked. I didn't add a lot of the soy/salt/pepper "to taste" b/c I worried they would end up too salty tasting in the Asian dipping sauce. (I used duck sauce.) So, when I started using other sauces (particularly mustard & hot sauce), it left the insides a little bland. My family did eat these eggrolls, but next time, we will probably use about half the suggested beef & potato ingredients, but leave the cabbage at 2 cups. My daughter (she's 3) liked them with ketchup. I can understand that, because when you think about it ground beef = hamburger, potatoes = french fries! We could definitely try this again, b/c I did the prepping & eggrolling, and dad did the frying, so it was really more of a family meal than typical sit down dinners. I will add some different seasonings to the filling, though...so the dipping sauce isn't such a requirement.  -  18 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was a good basic recipie, but I added lots of extras. I added carrots, onions, red peppers, garlic and some ginger. I also mashed the potatoes and used some of the starchy water to help hold everything together. They turned out really well.  -  16 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
