Minced Pork Rolls

When I was young, I always  look forward to the times when my mum made these minced pork rolls.  It's her specialty till today and somehow my siblings can never get it to taste quite like hers. Like all mothers her era (at least those that I knew:D), she doesnt have a fixed recipe for us to follow and we siblings somehow never ask her for the exact recipe. So we have our own recipe created through trial and error till we are somehow satisfied with the taste. Of cos we can always made it upon request by our families now, but our mum still only make these rolls for special ocassions which we still look forward to.

The ingredients are pretty simple:-

500g Minced pork
1 small carrot(shredded),
an egg
seasonings like 5 spices powder, oyster sauce,  soya sauce, salt, pepper - all to taste
a tablespoon of cornstarch
1 tsp of ginger (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
 1 tablespoon sesame oil,

 My mum added some shrimps too but since my boys do not like shrimps, I have obmitted them.

Very easy to put together, mixed all ingredients together, and wrap up the prepared meat in soya bean skin (fuchok pei in cantonese) and fry till golden brown, sliced and serve with your favourite vegetables. Of cos they taste good with rice too.
