Let me start with one confession: I find wrapping moist rice paper complicated because it is so sticky and easily dropped and torn so I started to explore easier ways to stuff one with the filling and cover with another one, press the edges and bake it just like pancakes. The result is this stuffed rice paper recipe.

During the process, it seemed impossible to keep the rice papers in one piece after we submerged them into the water. So, simple idea popped out and it works: you just wet two tea towels and place rice papers between them, taking care that smooth side is down:

However, the first step we suggest is to prepare your stuffing. Start with cooking beef with salt and ground black pepper to taste until meat gets golden brown. After you drain rice, combine it with eggs, meat, mushrooms, herbs, lemon juice, and soy sauce. At the end, add surimi, and gently combine. Here are your ingredients:

If you are skilled with rice paper dishes, you can also make several layers of tea towels and rice papers to speed the process, so you just remove tea towels one by one and fill one paper, cover it with another and repeat the process.

We all agreed that pineapple and cilantro leaves are a must to serve the wraps with. They enrich the flavours very much. Serving your food this way, you don’t need any dipping sauce for it.
