If this is your first time making homemade egg rolls, these air fryer pork egg rolls are a great place to start.

My favorite reason for using the air fryer is because foods that are typically deep fried make a mess with grease popping all over the place, but that doesn’t happen when they’re made in the air fryer.

Plus, the egg rolls aren’t greasy either.

What are egg rolls?

Egg rolls are a cylindrical, savory roll with shredded cabbage, chopped pork, and other fillings inside a wrapped skin typically fried in hot oil.

How to make this recipe

1 – Heat up vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground pork and minced garlic and cook until the pork is no longer pink. It takes about 5-7 minutes.

Drain the pork of any excess grease and set it aside.

2 – Heat sesame oil over medium heat in a skillet. Once the oil is warm, add the coleslaw mix, shredded carrots and green onions. Cook until the vegetables are soft, which is about 3-5 minutes. The coleslaw mix cooks down fairly quickly.

3 – Add the ground pork back to the pan and mix everything together.

4 – Add an egg white to a bowl with a pastry brush. Take about 3 tablespoons of the pork mixture and add it to the center of an egg roll wrapper. Fold in the sides of the wrapper and then roll up to form the egg roll.

5 – Brush the egg roll with egg white and set aside. Repeat until the pork mixture and egg rolls wrapper are gone.

6 – Place egg rolls into the air fryer basket, being careful not to overcrowd the basket. Turn the air fryer on to 390 degree and air fry for 6 minutes.

The wrappers should be slightly brown and crispy, but not burnt. Repeat until all the egg rolls are cooked.

How do I store my egg rolls?

Place egg rolls in an airtight container or resealable bag and place in the refrigerator. Stored properly, egg rolls will keep about 3-4 days.

Can I freeze egg rolls?

Place egg rolls on a baking sheet in a single layer in the freezer until the egg rolls are frozen through, about 4 hours. Transfer the frozen egg rolls a freezer safe resealable bag or air tight container and place in the freezer.

Stored properly, egg rolls will last about 6 months.

How do I reheat egg rolls?

Place egg rolls on a plate and warm in the microwave until filling is no longer cold. Then, to get the crunch back, put them in a hot oven to re-crisp the egg roll wrappers.

Egg rolls are one of my addictions! I've never tried making them at home. Using an air-fryer is a brilliant idea! I'm not a big fan of deep frying and this is a wonderful alternative.
