DIRECTIONS

  • Brown beef and pork, until almost completely cooked. Drain fat. Cool and process in food processor or chop up into fine pieces (like Taco Bell taco meat or a little coarser) with fork.
  • Combine meats, vegetables, egg, sauces, pepper in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour for flavors to set inches I like to prepare my filling the day before so it can marinate all night.
  • Prepare wrapper (by separating) and place on a separate plate. Place 1 to 2 T of filling in the center of the wrapper.
  • Fold left edge over all the way, then bring down top and bottom, then roll the rest of the way to the right, making a roll. hard to explain without a picture, but you'll figure it out -- looks like an egg roll when done, only thinner and longer. Seal with with flour and water mixture.
  • After you have assembled all the lumpia, heat your oil (I use the deep fryer) to 375 degrees. Cook until golden brown, turning often, approximately 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
  • Note: the wrapper packages usually have instructions for rolling the wrap. Times vary by experience and methods used.
