Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


  1. Combine olive oil, beef, red onion, parsley, mustard, mozzarella, breadcrumbs, chives, garlic and half of the whisked egg in a large bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix until combined.
  2. Place 1 tbsp mixture in centre of bottom-third of spring roll wrapper. Using a pastry brush, brush sides with a little of the remaining egg. Fold sides of the wrapper over. Brush a little more of the egg over the front, then roll the mixture tightly until it reaches the other end. Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.
  3. Fill a large saucepan with enough oil to cover spring rolls. Preheat to 180°C. Cook spring rolls, in batches, for 4–5 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to paper towel to drain excess oil.
  4. To make the mayonnaise, combine mayonnaise, tomato sauce and Sriracha in a small bowl.
  5. Wrap spring rolls in lettuce leaves and serve with mayonnaise.
