Appetizer Egg Rolls
1/2 pound Pork; Boneless -- Cut Julienne
1 each Onion; Small -- Sliced
1 cup Cabbage -- Green Or Chinese *
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Mushrooms -- Sliced
1/4 cup Sprouts -- Bean Or Alfalfa
1/4 cup Currants
1/4 cup Almonds -- Slivered
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Sherry -- Dry
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Ginger
12 each Egg Roll Wrappers -- Abt 6" Sq
-- Oil For Deep Fat Fry
1/4 cup Apricots -- Dried (Abt. 10)
1/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
* Cabbage should be shredded.
Saute the pork, onion, and cabbage in hot oil until lightly browned. Stir in the mushrooms, bean sprouts, currants, and almonds and saute, stirring for 1 minute. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 T water, and combine with sherry, soy sauce, and ginger; add to the pork mixture and bring to a boil, stirring.
Remove from heat and cool. Stack the egg roll wrappers and cut in half to form rectangles.
Forming one roll at a time, place a heaping a teaspoonful of pork mixture on one end of rectangle, moisten the long edges, and roll up.
Press the edges together to seal. Egg roll may be prepared to this point, then refrigerated for several hours or overnight or frozen for several days before frying.
Adjust time for browning. If rolls are frozen, let them thaw before
cooking. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F. and fry the egg rolls, 4 or 5 at a time, until golden brown and crisp on all sides. Frying will take about 4 to 5 minutes; turn rolls once. Drain on paper towels and keep warm while frying the remaining rolls.
Serve with warm Ginger Apricot Sauce. GINGER APRICOT SAUCE: Combine the
apricots, sugar, ginger, and salt with 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into a blender container or food processor.
Add lemon juice, cover and process until smooth. Serve warm.

Arrange ribs on broiler pan; sprinkle with garlic salt. Make sauce by combining salad dressing and pineapple juice. Brush ribs with half the sauce.

The book is to much work for me and for quick appetizers. At the rate of these recipes plan on being in the kitchen all week. The book is actually free so you can look at it and delete it or forget it. There are a few recipes I might save then delete it. I just wish the whole recipe could be on one page, not skip lines for every ingredient. We can enlarge the print if needed. I wish there could be a condense version to delete blank lines between ingredients. I gave it 2 stars because of the complexity and odd ingredients most people don't have on hand.
