Story Behind this Recipe
When I hear "spring rolls," I'm reminded of my mother's recipe that included cellophane noodles! This is now one of my family's favorite dishes.
-You can use any kind of pork, but I personally recommend coarsely chopped shreds (offcuts) of pork. -Make sure the filling is cooled down before you wrap it up. -It tastes good without any sauce, but you can serve with ponzu sauce if you'd like (says my boyfriend).
