Cuvée Blanc and homemade Chinese Food, YUMMY!

Posted on by Still Waters Vineyards

Every now and then we get a guest who fills us in on the wonderful ways they have paired our wines. I recently received an email from a club member explaining the food she paired with our Cuvée Blanc. The menu sounded delicious and she graciously shared her recipes.

Thanks Sharen for the great pairings!

Baked Egg Rolls

½ Lb ground pork

½ tsp ground ginger

4 cloves garlic, chopped

¼ c olive oil

½ c shredded cabbage

  1. Season pork and garlic with ginger and mix thoroughly. Heat mixture in a medium skillet, stirring, until pork is cooked through and no longer pink. Set aside. Add the cabbage, carrots.. Mix all together.
  2. Working quickly, lay out wonton wrappers – place about a tsp of the mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper. Bring up the fur corners of the wrapper an lift gently intoa mini muffin pan. Carefully fold the edges over each other. Brush a bit of water on top to help seal the egg roll.
  3. Place the muffin tin in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Serve w/a dipping sauce made up of soy sauce & dry mustard.
