Almost like my mama's (she uses fresh green beans). Delish! Thanks.

Great stuff. Try using red wine vinegar with fresh garlic mashed up in it for dipping.

I'm a Girl Scout leader and was looking for an easy recipe that my 6th graders could make, while exploring new cuisines. This was really easy to make and the girls just loved them. I even had parents asking for the recipe! I would add a bit of minced garlic next time to add to the kick, but these are great as written!

wow these are so great! Im from the big island and this was one of my favorite foods growing up. I cooked my lumpia in a work and i think i had the heat up to high because the wrappers bubbled. but other wise these were perfect! My boyfriend no longer wants to buy frozen eggrolls after trying these!

My Mom is Filipina and makes her lumpia very similar! I tried these yesterday and it was sooooooo good! Probably the closest to moms! Definitly a keeper here! Oh, and half of the batch I tried shredded cabbage, super yum as well! Thanks for sharing!!

These were AMAZING!! I live in Guam where there is A LOT of Filipino food, but I wanted to be able to make them whenever I wanted. This was a perfect recipe. I ended up doubling it, mostly by accident; I shredded too much celery without thinking. lol I used my food processor for shredding the carrots and celery, and I also added water chestnuts, which gave it a nice unexpected crunch. I also used Sage pork sausage, I think next time I might try all sausage instead of ground beef. But so good! We made em last night and my husband is still raving about them this morning.

Wow, this brings back memories. My mom made these when we were stationed in Adak, Alaska, in the 1970s. Her recipe box is a mess, so I'm glad to have this recipe for myself. Thanks!

Excellent! My DH loved these, he was in the navy and had these overseas. We've been looking for this recipe. I changed it a little. I used 1 lb ground pork and no ground beef and added 2 garlic cloves. Thanks, will be making these often.

I am from Arkansas and live in Alaska. My PI coworker introduced me to Lumpia. Wow, I used your recipe and added 2 cups of minced cabbage and a tablespoon of fish sauce. I just got done eating so much it's hard to breath. CRAZY TASTY!!!
