Servings: 2 dozen
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 3 hours 15 min
1 (2 1/2-pound) boneless Boston butt roast or pork shoulder roast
2 tablespoons Paula’s Butt Massage seasoning*
1 (16-ounce) bag tri-color slaw mix
1/4 cup celery, diced
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons barbeque sauce
1 teaspoon Paula Deen’s House Seasoning, recipe follows
2 (16-ounce) packages egg roll wrappers
Vegetable oil or peanut oil, for frying
Barbeque sauce, for dipping, optional
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder
*Butt Massage is a blend of paprika, garlic and onion powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place roast in pan. Rub seasoning mixture over roast. Cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil and bake for 3 hours, or until tender. Let roast cool to touch and shred the meat with a fork. In a large bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups of the shredded pork (reserve any leftover meat for another use), slaw mix, celery, and pickle relish. In a small bowl, combine barbeque sauce and House Seasoning. Pour over pork mixture, tossing gently to coat. Place 1 egg roll wrapper on a clean flat surface with one corner pointing towards you. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush corners with water. Spoon 1/3 cup of pork filling in center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold bottom corner of wrapper over filling. Fold left and right corners over filling. Tightly roll filled end toward remaining corner, pressing gently to seal. The end result should look like an envelope.
In a deep-fryer or large Dutch oven, pour oil to a depth of 2-inches. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
Fry egg rolls, in batches for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with barbeque sauce.
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
