    Recipe Notes

    I am partial to preparing this with beef, but it is delicious made with chicken. You might want to add mushrooms for additional vegetables.

    Tofu, seitan or tempeh would be excellent vegetarian options to the beef.

    I like to serve the chile garlic sauce as a condiment for those that want additional heat.

    If I can find high quality egg rolls in the freezer section of my local grocery store or Whole Foods Market, I’ll usually pop these in the oven to complete a fun “Chinese takeout” made at home.
