Lumpias are Philippino egg rolls. They are extremely easy to make and oh, so good! I like to eat mine with sweet and sour duck sauce. Enjoy!
-1 Tbs vegetable oil
-2 lbs ground pork
-2 cloves garlic, crushed
-1/2 cup onion, chopped
-1/2 cup finely shredded carrots
-4-5 green onions, chopped
-1/2 cup finely shredded cabbage
-salt and pepper, to taste
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1 Tbs soy sauce
-about 30 egg roll or lumpia wrappers
-vegetable oil for frying
Heat the 1 Tbs oil in a large frying pan. Add pork and stir until cooked through. Remove pork from pan. Drain grease from pan, leaving just a thin coating. Return pan to stove. Add garlic and onion. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add cooked pork, carrots, green onion and cabbage. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and soy sauce. Give it a good stir and cook for a couple more minutes. Remove from heat and set aside until cool enough to handle.
Place one wrapper on cutting board. Place about 1 Tbs of pork mixture on one of the corners. Wrap tightly, tucking in the side corners. Moisten with a bit of water the remaining corner. Seal the wrapper and place on plate.
Repeat wrapping procedure with remaining ingredients.
In a large frying pan, heat enough oil for frying. Slide lumpias in hot oil and cook on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
