  • In a wok or skillet, stir-fry the garlic in 2 tablespoons of the oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the scallions, celery, carrots, and stir-fry over high heat for 2 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, and sugar. Add the cabbage to the broth mixture. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft. Add sesame oil, cool for at least 15 minutes, and strain. Fold in the meat pieces.

I’ve never had an egg roll (not this sort) but your instructions are very plain. I’ll give it a try.

I’m withdrawing from the meme scene for a while but I hope to be back in September with some more rhyming recipes.
