Mandarin Egg Roll
1 1/2 c Dried black mushrooms
5 1/4 c Vegetable oil
1/2 ts Crushed fresh garlic
1/2 ts Crushed ginger root
1/2 c Cooked ground pork
1 tb Cooking wine
1/2 c Cooked shrimp
1 c Shredded bamboo shoots
1 c Bean sprouts
1 c Shredded celery
1 Scallion, shredded
1 ts Sesame seed oil
Salt and white pepper
8 Riceflour egg roll wrappers
1 Egg white; lightly beaten

Soak the mushrooms in hot water 15 minutes. Drain, cut off tough stems and shred to make 1/2 cup. Place 1/4 cup oil in a wok over high heat until hot. Add the garlic, ginger and pork. Stir-fry 2 minutes.

Add the cooking wine and shrimp and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and remaining vegetables and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add the sesame seed oil and salt to taste. Mix. Drain off excess liquid and set the vegetable mixture aside. In a clean wok, heat 5 cups vegetable oil to the boiling point, about

400 F. Working with one at a time, lay the egg roll wrappers on the counter and place 1/8 of the reserved vegetable mixture on one end of each. Moisten the edges of the wrapper with the egg white and roll the wrapper, tucking in the ends at both sides of wrapper as you roll. Deep-fry the egg roll about 5 to 10 minute. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
