Pinterest Test Kitchen #89 ~ Inside Out Egg Roll

So, last week I shared a picture on facebook of the dinner I had made for us that night.

Y’all that post got busy! People commented and messaged me asking for the recipe. The funny thing is that it is so simple I didn’t even follow a recipe. A friend had made it for us the week before and she walked me through how she had made it (she had tweaked the recipe she found) and said to just pinterest search inside out egg roll.


This is the recipe I found that seemed the closest to what she had told me. I read through it and wrote the ingredients down and haven’t looked at it again since…not even when I cooked it. I say that only to point out how very versatile and easy this recipe is. (I left out the egg & celery and could not find the Chinese Five Spice at all.)

What you’ll need:

1 head of cabbage, chopped
1/2 cup of green onions, chopped
1 1/2 pound ground beef, browned and seasoned (I used salt, garlic and ginger)
Soy Sauce, to taste
1 can water chestnuts
8 oz mushrooms, sauteed 
What you’ll do:
Steam your cabbage with water almost to the point of being done. (We like ours with a little crunch.)
Toss in the other ingredients and stir fry until everything is heated through and at the desired tenderness.

Eat and enjoy!


Seriously, it couldn’t be any easier and even the kids were clamoring for more. Next time I would probably prepare some rice as a side to go along with it. I’ve also seen a couple of recipes that substituted chicken for the beef.

I’d really like to find that Chinese Five Spice so if you know where I can get some don’t be shy, let me know! I really enjoy Asian food and want to experiment with making more of it from scratch.

You can find this recipe, as well as the other test kitchen recipes I’ve shared on the blog, here on My Test Kitchen Pinterest board.
