vietnamese-ish beef spring rolls

My mom was out of town, so we invited my dad over for some grilling and, it turns out, extremely tricky spring roll wrapping. Flavor-wise, let's just say the intent is more important than authenticity in this case.

This is an extremely blurry and ugly picture, but it's the best I had. We had a hard time keeping the very thin and sticky rice paper wrappers from sticking to itself and tearing. Aside from the poor aesthetics, the rolls were quite tasty, and it made for a light, yet filling meal.
