My husband's family is Filipino and they all enjoy my Lumpia.

These little treats are great at parties. I grind my own pork which i think is what makes the difference and i used a good quality shrimp as well.


0.5 lb Ground Lean pork
0.25 lb shrimp; Fine chopped
0.3 cup Waterchestnuts; chopped
4 pieces dried mushrooms; soaked in warm chicken broth then chopped small
0.5 cup carrots; cut into julienne
0.5 cup Scallions; cut very fine
1 tablespoon Pepper
1 whole Egg
1 tablespoon soy sauce
35 Lumpia; or eggroll wrappers

Original recipe makes 35 Servings



In a bowl, combine pork, shrimp, water-chestnuts, mushrooms, Scallions and carrots. Season with salt, pepper then mix in egg and soy sauce. Beat mixture thoroughly.

At one end of a lumpia wrapper, spoon about 2 tb of the pork mixture and roll tightly. Brush end of wrapper with water to seal.

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry 3 or 4 lumpia at a time. Fry for about 3 or 4 minutes, turning once. Lumpia are cooked through when they float, and the wrapper is golden brown. Cut in half, or serve as is with sweet and spicy dipping sauce.

great taste but i think I'll cut back the black pepper by half. also, i measured out the meat filling and put two tablespoons in each wrapper and only ended up being 16 wrappers.

i did not find lumpia wrappers but tried it with spring roll wrappers. turned out excellent. for a dipping sauce i mixed 1 part red wine vinegar, 1 part soy sauce, a few crushed garlic cloves, salt and pepper to taste.

One thin I do not like is chill sauces :( Me and my kids just love tomato sauce, can we use that as well ?

No you don't cook it first, but you can if you prefer.
