Top-ranked recipe named "Lumpia Shanghai"
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.
"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."- henrylewis
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.
jmaloney82 3 months agogreat 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.
