Hope someone can answer my question. I would like to make these for a picnic lunch. If made ahead and wrapped, then placed in a cooler, would they end up soggy as we would be eating them hours later?

These were not only easy to put together, but delicious. I was looking for something quick after a long, hot day and these really hit the spot. I served the rolls bias sliced with slices of oranges and extra mint to garnish and it was a pretty dish. Even the eye appeal garnered an "ooooh" from my 2-year-old who devoured hers without leaving a crumb. She said, "You're a good cooker mommy!" The beauty of it is that I didn't have to cook a thing. ***Normally I don't alter recipes and then comment on them. But, I didn't have granulated sugar in the house so I used honey. Wouldn't have done that if the other flavors weren't strong enough to hold their own.

A good way to make a last-minute dinner option a little more exotic. On my first try, I used ground ginger and garlic instead of fresh and the full amount of sesame oil which led to a bitter taste. I re-did the sauce for leftovers and substituted 1/2 olive oil with just a 1/2 tsp of ground ginger and a couple shakes of ground garlic. The results were much better.

Very good and QUICK recipe. I made it exactly as written and my only complaint was that it was extremely salty. It may have been my fish sauce or my beef, but I would recommend tasting the sauce before adding the salt.

Really tasty and easy to make. Can't wait to fix for a lunch with friends. Served with steamed edemame instead of chips.

I've made these a few times. When I've taken them to potlucks, they disappear quickly. I love the blend of flavors and leftovers are even better.

Excellent lunch treat. My son loved it and said to give it a five star rating.
