Ingredients

1 package
spring roll wrappers
1  
onion
1/2  
green bell pepper
2  
potatoes
5 cloves
garlic
3  
carrot
1 1/2 pound
beef (ground)
3 tablespoons
canola oil
1/2 teaspoon
salt
1 tablespoon
chili sauce
1/4 cup
cilantro

Instructions

Very finely chop onion, pepper, and potato and grate garlic and carrots.

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat and brown beef. Once it is brown, add remaining ingredients and cover, stirring frequently. Cook until potato is tender, about 5-10 minutes.

Pour oil into a large saucepan until it is about 2 inches high in pan and heat over medium-high heat.  Once it is hot, add enough sambousas to fill the pan and fry until golden brown on each side.
