  • 1 pound ground meat chicken, turkey, or pork all work great
  • 3 tablespoons gochujang sriracha good too
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 limes Rice wine vinegar subs nicely
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 12 ounces slaw mix I like broccoli slaw, but cabbage works
  • 12 rice paper spring roll skins
  • Optional: pickled onions*, jalapenos, etc


  • Combine slaw mix with juice of one lime and heavy pinch of salt. Stir and set aside.
  • In large saucepan over medium high heat with a tablespoon of your favorite saute oil, brown meat, 7-8 minutes. As the meat cooks, mince garlic and ginger and combine with gochujang, soy sauce, honey, corn starch, and juice of remaining lime. Pour sauce into pan with meat and cook 1-2 minutes.
  • Assemble spring rolls: this 2 minute video (referenced below**) by good guy Jeff Mauro is worth 10000 words on technique. Just know that you’ll probably lose the first roll, and its okay to double wrap a roll. Serve immediately with a side of soy for dipping.
