  1. Cook garlic & chili flakes over medium heat until fragrant. Add remaining ingredients and cook an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat and refrigerate until serving.
Egg Rolls
  1. Over medium heat, cook pork, ginger, garlic, onion powder, chinese 5 spice (if using) and soy sauce until no pink remains. Set aside.

  2. Preheat oil to 375 degrees F.
  3. Combine flour and water in a small bowl.
  4. Lay out one egg roll wrapper with a corner pointed toward you. Place 2 tablespoons of the meat and 2 tablespoons of the coleslaw mixture in the center. Use your finger to spread a little bit of the flour mixture along the edge.
  5. Fold two of the corners together to make a triangle, fold the sides in and then roll tightly. (Seal the edges with the flour mixture).
  6. Fry egg rolls until lightly browned and crispy turning occasionally.
  7. Serve with sesame sauce.
