Chinese food happens to be one of my favorite types of cuisine. My husband and I often take out from one of our favorite local restaurants because they always have the freshest and tastiest entrees. Sometimes, I even like to prepare Chinese favorites like spare ribs, wontons, and egg rolls at home. Since I have not mastered the egg roll quite yet, I typically buy prepared varieties from companies like Van’s Kitchen.
You can find Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls in the refrigerated prepared food section at Shaw’s Supermarkets. Available in Shrimp, Pork, and Chicken flavors, these egg rolls come in packs of 4 and are ready to heat and eat. They are on special at Shaw’s now-October 13th! I love that Van’s Kitchen even includes some awesome dipping sauce to complement their already tasty egg rolls.
Personally, I love that Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls are a Certified Woman-Owned, and Minority-Owned company ran by a working mom of two teenage boys. Low in fat, and MSG-free, they are a great source of “hidden veggies” that my three kiddos actually love! I love the unique flavor, and fresh cuts of lean pork, carrots, onions, celery, and cabbage in every bite.
Since I am all about mixing different food flavors, and creating fun, yet easy dishes; these Chinese Spare Ribs and Egg Roll Baked Wontons were a no-brainer. Made with freshly wok-fried pork spare ribs, and deconstructed Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls, they make a fun appetizer for game day, or even a fun dinner time meal.
Want to make these Chinese Spare Ribs and Egg Roll Baked Wontons? Here is what you will need:
- Wontons wrappers
- Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls in pork flavor *gently pulled apart by hand
- 1-2 lbs of boneless country style pork ribs sliced thin *We made extra to have some on the side
- 3/4 cup Spare rib sauce *found in Asian cuisine aisle at Shaw’s
- 1 tsp of onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil for wok frying
Heat Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls in the microwave *it is ok if they are moist because they will be re-baking.
Heat oil in a wok. Once heated, add your pork strips in, spices, and stir for about 5 mins.
After the pork turns grey, add in the spare rib sauce and stir for another 10 mins over med heat.
The ribs will cook pretty fast and you do not want them to burn from the sugars in the rib sauce.
Once they are done, set them aside.
Setup a cupcake tin with your wonton wrappers, and then fill them with your egg roll mixture.
Chop spare ribs into little piece, and add them into the egg rolls
Bake the Chinese Spare Ribs and Egg Roll Baked Wontons at 350 for about 8 minutes or until wonton edges are crispy.
Enjoy your meal with some additional pork spare ribs and Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls on the side.
