I followed the cooking direction step by step and is was pretty easy to make. I prepared the roll the night before to save me some time. Really great for parties. I also had the dipping sauce served on the side. Turned out a hit and my Mom asked for the recipe so that just tells me it was really good.

Thank you Overseas Pinoy!
